Since CNN finished dead last in the cable ratings, the “Best Political Team” just had to trot out the old standby, short-term, pump up their numbers agenda; let’s bash Sarah Palin with a spotty poll. The unspoken bashing goes to the people that support her because, ya know, they are all right-wing, domestic terrorist, open mouth breathing, left in the dirt, not with the new “hope and change program”, conservatives. That should help their ratings even more, doncha think, considering another new poll states that 40% of Americans are Conservatives.
Now for the most important part of this poll; no information about the percentage of Dems vs. Repubs vs. Indies in the 1,038 Americans polled OR the questions asked and how they were posed. We stopped trusting CNN back during the entire 2008 presidential election cycle, (i.e. dead last ratings), and we are not about to start trusting CNN again while such shoddy work continues.
The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll was conducted October 16-18, with 1,038 adult Americans questioned by telephone. The survey’s sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points for all respondents and plus or minus 4.5 percentage points for questions asked only of Republicans.
Poll: 71% Believe Sarah Palin Not Qualified To Be President
CNN? There is a reason you are dead last with political news coverage like this.
