WashPost Poll Finds Obama Approval Unaffected, President 'More Focused

May 21st, 2013 10:13 PM
The Washington Post reported on Tuesday's front page that their ABC-Post poll showed Obama’s approval rating remained steady, with 51 percent approving and 44 percent disapproving. Then came the Post polling comparison to uncaring Republicans. Dan Balz and Jon Cohen reported: “A bare majority of Americans say they believe that Obama is focused on issues that are important to…

WaPo Furthers Liberal Media’s ‘Racist’ Narrative at RNC: ‘Rep

August 30th, 2012 4:39 PM
The liberal media can’t seem to help themselves. While counter-arguments are occasionally acknowledged, most journalists of the progressive persuasion are not interested in fair and balanced coverage of politics. Facts and figures are seemingly subjective in the whole scheme of things. Severely limited studies and polls seem to provide them with all the information they need. Oh, and…

WashPost Buries Most of the Numbers Off Page One on Bad Obama Poll

March 12th, 2012 7:07 AM
Monday's Washington Post announces their new poll with ABC News with the headline "As gasoline prices rise, president's ratings fall." Reporters Dan Balz and Jon Cohen announce the bad news upfront that "a record number of Americans now give the president 'strongly' negative reviews" on the economy. But you'd have to turn inside for the real numbers, as…

WashPost Notes Voter Discontent with Washington, Fails to Focus on

August 11th, 2011 4:52 PM
A new Washington Post poll finds, among other things, that a full 70 percent of Americans either believe Barack Obama has "tried but failed" to solve "the major problems facing the country" or has actually "made problems worse." That compares, by the way, with 71 percent of Americans in a December 2008 Pew Center poll who thought the same of outgoing President Bush…

Burying the Bad News: Obama Still Unliked by 'Non-College Whites

February 22nd, 2011 8:08 AM
A new survey by The Washington Post, the Kaiser Family Foundation, and the Harvard School for Public Health found dire news for Democrats: “When asked which party better understands the economic problems that people in the country are having, non-college whites side with the Republicans by a 14-point margin.” That news is so uncomfortable for media liberals that the Post put that…

WaPo Hypes Poll Showing 'Many Still Skeptical of GOP'; Still Neglects

December 15th, 2010 11:00 AM
Yesterday my colleague Tim Graham noted how the Washington Post failed to report its most recent ABCNews-Washington Post opinion poll on President Obama's signature health care overhaul legislation. This was despite the fact that the poll showed ObamaCare had fallen to "the lowest level of popularity ever" as ABC reporter Jake Tapper observed. Today the Post continued to keep…

Amazing: WaPo Fails to Publish Own Poll on ObamaCare's Lowest Populari

December 14th, 2010 1:55 PM
A new ABC-Washington Post poll found ObamaCare sunk to its lowest popularity yet: 52 percent opposed, and only 43 percent in favor. ABC mentioned the poll without fanfare at the end of a Jake Tapper report on Monday’s World News, and Tapper added this was the health law's "lowest level of popularity ever." But Tuesday’s Washington Post reported not one sentence on the…

WaPo Tries to Bury Their Own Depressing Poll Numbers for Dems Off the

September 7th, 2010 8:34 AM
The Washington Post doesn't avoid the bad news for Democrats on Tuesday's front page, but it noticeably tried to hide the worst of it. The headline on the new ABC/Post poll was "Republicans making gains ahead of midterm elections; parties nearly even on trust; Obama's overall rating is at new low, poll finds." There is no graphic illustration of any poll result -- unlike their…

WaPo Laments False Rumor Obama's a Muslim: He's Been a 'Diligent and P

August 19th, 2010 8:36 AM
Thursday's Washington Post reports that a new poll by the Pew Research Center found “The number of Americans who believe – wrongly – that President Obama is a Muslim has increased significantly since his inauguration and now account for nearly 20 percent of the nation's population.” Team Obama quickly blamed “'misinformation campaigns' by the president's opponents.” The Post's Jon Cohen and…

WaPo Insists GOP Lacks Confidence of 72 Percent; But 43 Percent Said T

July 13th, 2010 1:12 PM
The Washington Post announced bad news for its largely liberal readers in its poll Tuesday morning. The headline said "6 in 10 Americans lack faith in Obama: Congress still held in lower esteem, but poll shows gap narrowing." Those who read the story would wait until the end of paragraph six (just before the jump) to get this liberal-haunting number: "Those most likely to vote in…

Is the WaPo Stuffing Its Own Ballot Box for the 'Public Option

October 21st, 2009 7:51 AM
The Washington Post touted a new poll on Tuesday that popular support is increasing for a government-run "public option" health care system – just as liberal Democrats try to push that into the Senate Finance Committee bill. The headline was "Public option gains support: Clear majority now backs plan." So it’s not surprising, as Ed Morrissey found at Hot Air, that the Post is…
