even beyond the bad math..there is another interpretive possibility.

how is it that a poll dated 3/23/14 is posted on 3/22/14?

if, for example

12% vehemently disapprove

39% strongly disapprove (including the 12% who are vehement about it)


87% disapprove (including those who are strong in their disapproval or vehement)

The groups don't have to be unique.

Bill kept getting into sex scandals. Apparently the ladies must find him attractive, so they took a random poll of 1,000 women and asked: Would you sleep with Bill Clinton? 900 of them replied "Never again!"

At least to Comedy Central. Fox has what's called a 'target rich environment' for mining material that can be used on the Daily Show and Colbert Report. Comedy writers are going to be wearing black armbands when Faux viewers' ancient audience goes tits up and their 'news' channel fades into obsolescence a few years down the road.

Imagine the Fox viewer outrage if the President said we would take military action. 152% disapprove?

It wouldn't matter what he did.
