So the NBC/Wall Street Poll shows that
58% of Americans believe Obama has achieved what they expected and 12% say he has achieved more than they expected. That means 70% of those polled are satisfied with his achievements but Fuckie Todd mentioned earlier today that 29% felt he hadn't achieved what they wanted.

In Jon Stewart's words I give up!

1. mighty big inference you're making there chum
believing someone has achieved what they expected doesn't mean you agree with what they've achieved.

7. ambiguous wording - that's something I associate with online "non-scientific" polls
But there isn't any law against it becoming commonplace in regular polling, I suppose.

2. You'd think one or two...
...of the 70% would eventually surface here -- no such luck, not yet.

5. President Obama is doing
a wonderful job. Sorry the far left just doesn't appreciate him. I was a stupid Repuke all my life until 4 years ago. I adore my President.

8. No..
The achieved what you expected number is mostly useless. Lots of people that hate the President fully expected to dislike what he'd do in office and he matched those expectations.

In this poll, Obama's approval rating is 47%. Not a bad number at all considering all things, but most certainly not 58% approval.

14. He can achieve expectations without satisfying, if
some had low expectations.
