Proved: Obama is more popular than he should be

May 4, 2012

Nate Silver crunches the numbers, and comes up with this:

In fact, he is more popular than expected, and consistently so throughout these three years. His quarterly approval ratings are, on average, nine points higher than expected.

    Of course, if the samples actually included non-union workers, taxpayers, and non-Democrats, the numbers might tell a different story…

    Silver is such a worthless hack. I can see why you RINOs love him, Poli.

    His own model, the one he creates, shows about ALL presidents actually outperforming it, some or all of the time. Not just Bush 43, Reagan and Obambi as Silver blathers… about ALL of them outperform hack Silver’s model: Clinton, Bush 41, Kennedy, Eisenhower, Ford, hell even CARTER and NIXON outperformed it.

    And what that means is that this stupid hack Silver is either a stupid hack or a liar, or both.

    Yeah, I can see why you RINOs love that hack, Poli

    So when reality doesn’t meet the model, it’s the reality that’s flawed? I know this is a talking point in global warming science as well, but usually they try to adjust the model to meet reality.

    That’s basically it. For Poli and the RINOs, and their soulmates on the Left, it’s reality that’s flawed.

    That’s Silver’s stock-in-trade, selling the koolaid to RINOs and lefties, and getting filthy rich off it. And such as Poli slurp up the koolaid, absent even the most cursory review. Silver posts his nonsense and KNOWS these drones are gonna take it and run. I mean he KNOWS they’ll do it. Every time.

    Because he’s saying what the RINOs and their lefty soulmates BOTH want to hear. The Left wants to hear that their boy is the messiah, so they can get their leg tingling swerve on. And the RINOs want to explain away the reasons why their boy Willard is losing to Barry Hussein Odinga Mugabe the marxist kenyan muslim, when anybody including my dog should be up 10 points right now.

    Now, for both those groups of idiots, the RINOs and the Left, a bit of hard data and reality would dispel their foolishness. The hard data would confirm that Barry Odinga is a failure, and Willard is a lying progressive crapweasel, who should never be nominated.

    But the RINOs and Left don’t want hard data. They want koolaid. That’s where Silver comes in.
