WaPo-ABC News poll as of 12/15/10 - 49% approval for Pres. Obama

Washington Post-ABC News Poll


Disclaimer: I still think polls are full of shit,
but since its seems like so many take them seriously,
I'd post one that's not too bad. I'm not here to
depress Democrats, or try to make us feel like
losing is the only way we'll get anything,
cause indeed, it will be the sure way, with or without debate,
that we will lose everything.....just saying! :shrug:
