Bozell: Media Ignores Obama's Falling Polls

Monday, 06 Jul 2009 08:26 PM

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell Monday demanded that the so-called mainstream media accurately report the facts about President Barack Obama’s plunging poll numbers.

Bozell urged the nation’s liberal newspapers and TV networks to point out the fact that Americans are growing vastly more conservative as voter approval ratings tank to their lowest levels for the most radically liberal President in our nation’s history.

[Editor’s Note: See “Rasmussen Poll: Obama’s Popularity Plunging:” — Go here now.]

Bozell pointed to two recent major findings by the nation’s two leading polling organizations:

  • Gallup – “Americans, by a 2-to-1 margin, say their political views in recent years have become more conservative rather than more liberal, 39% to 18%.” In fact, Gallup also cites that “more members of all three major partisan groups indicate that their views have shifted to the right rather than to the left,” in addition to reporting last month that “40% of Americans call themselves conservative,” the highest level since 2004.

  • Rasmussen – Simultaneously, President Obama’s disapproval rating on the economy – his key issue which swallowed $787 billion – has reached a new high. Rasmussen reports 56% of Americans rate Obama fair or poor on the economy compared to the 50% who disapproved of his economic policies just a week ago.

    “The media are obsessed with polling and public opinion data – unless, of course, it goes against their narrative,” Bozell said. “The cause and effect is clear: the more America learns about Obama’s radical agenda, the more they are galloping in the other direction. \

    “But do we really expect the left-wing media to report this? This is the same media who just last week failed to ask what happened to Obama’s billion-dollar ‘stimulus’ bill in reporting the highest unemployment rate since 1983,” Bozell said. “Incoming memo to the GOP: Set a torch to that big tent of yours. People are flocking from liberals’ failing policy and ideals.”
