Obama Barely Wins 2009 Election

Interesting. They forgot to finish the sentence:

Fifty percent approve of how Obama has handled his job as president, the second lowest total since Gallup started polling. Obama beats only Ronald Reagan, who started 1982 with a 49 percent approval rating.

That should read:

Fifty percent approve of how Obama has handled his job as president, the second lowest total since Gallup started polling. Obama beats only Ronald Reagan, who started 1982 with a 49 percent approval rating, so you can see how meaningless this really is.

The article goes on to mention that Bush I had an 80% approval, second highest ever. One term later, he didn’t have any approval rating. The highest, of course, goes to G.W. Bush, who had a 9/11-powered 84% approval rating after his first year. And we all know how well that turned out. If only the left blindly approved of Obama the way the right did Bush…who knows how high of an approval this utterly meaningless poll would have for him?
