So it must be true! Look no further folks, the proof is right here. But wait, I thought American voters were low info and didn't know anything? So which is it? Are these 1,446 people low info voters, or are they educated assessments?

The only thing he's been voted recently is POTUS. This was an opinion poll (and a pretty narrow one based on sample size), not a vote. It is also not as cut-and-dried as our friend alloak would have us believe with his nifty one-liner. When you start to break down the info presented with this poll, there are a lot of things that you can read into it, including that W and Obama find themselves together at the bottom of the barrel in this poll, which shouldn't be all that surprising to anyone given two major wars that still linger after 10+ years, an near-complete economic meltdown that started in 2008 and continues, and the bitter partisanship that had gridlocked Washington and manifests itself in the general electorate as well, as clearly indicated by this poll.

I thought this section was interesting:
quote:
Obama has been a better president than George W. Bush, 39 percent of voters say, while 40 percent say he is worse. Men say 43 - 36 percent that Obama is worse than Bush while women say 42 - 38 percent he is better. Obama is worse, Republicans say 79 - 7 percent and independent voters say 41 - 31 percent. Democrats say 78 - 4 percent that he is better.

Voters say by a narrow 37 - 34 percent that Obama is better for the economy than Bush.



I also thought this was interesting...while GOP candidates continue to make repeal of Obamacare a campaign focus (when I was in FL for 10 days during primaries back in March, it was the ONLY issue many were running on), it doesn't seem to be a real high priority for the people surveyed in this particular poll:
quote:
The economy and jobs are the most important problems facing the country today, 35 percent of voters say, with 12 percent listing politicians/campaigns/corruption, 6 percent each for healthcare and foreign affairs, 5 percent for the budget and 4 percent each for education and immigration.


Interesting that more people in this survey think Obama is better for the economy than his predecessor, and they also rank the economy as the most important issue facing the country.

1,446 people. That's roughly the size of 3 movie theaters.

Obviously, if they were all low information voters Obama wouldn't have finished dead last.

Thank you. Go ahead a tee up another one..

Yeah, what does QUINNIPIAC know about polling? They should stick to things they know something about!

Quinnipiac has a long history of not only being the most conservatively biased polling organization. These are the same clowns that had Romney 6 points ahead of Obama.

I don't think the news of this poll will impact the President's 4th of July. I think he will celebrate the birth of a great nations while others will wallow in their belief that America is a terrible country, with a terrible leader.

Me? I'm celebrating.

Glad we have the FDA so I can grill up some salmonella free meat.

We're still a great nation, the absolute greatest ever to appear on Earth. Right now we have a terrible leader.

So then you're saying these people are informed and educated. But you've said many times that Obama got re-elected because America's voters are low-info. Don't you contradict yourself here?

The Quinnipiac poll results are what they are.
The Obama Presidency has been a complete failure.

The liberals, aka low information voters, do not like the results.
Unable to craft an intelligent response they attack the pollster.

Apparently liberals are not fond of their well earned low information voter label but they are the democrat’s bread and butter. How else could Obama, with no professional experience and a socialist political agenda get elected in the first place?

It is all good. Come November when Harry Reid loses his control of The Senate (just like Pelosi did in The House in 2010, the American People will be able to stop the damage to our nation by Obama.

Conservatives are funny people. It's well-documented that the most educated people in America - professors, doctors, lawyers, etc, are mostly liberal. But yet they now try to pin liberals as "low-info". Insecurity at its finest.

No. I haven't made either one of those statements. I haven't made any inference regarding the intelligence of the poll respondents. Nor have I ever said America's voters are low-info.

C'mon alloak... for the debate to move forward we need honesty.

I've seen you post many times about low information voters. Were you talking about voters in some other country?

An interesting diatribe and follows the liberals talking points quite well.

Sadly it is loaded with false assumptions and liberal spin.

But then again, liberals are so easily lead by the nose.

If you look at the actual poll data in the link at the top, you will see that the people who participated are broken down by party affiliation and gender.

The results of the poll are a fair representation of American voters.
