Gaddafi had a higher approval rating than Congress does now.
Rep. Gaetz: The last public opinion poll I saw showed Congress had an approval rating of 9%. By contrast, Muammar Gaddafi had an approval rating of 13% and his own people dragged him into the streets and killed him.

“Unless you have bipartisan consensus, impeachment is a divisive issue in the country many people would think it's being done for political reasons,” said by Nancy Pelosi, May 2018.

And here we are, in the most partisan presidential impeachment in American history. Matter of fact, when we opened the inquiry, no republicans vote with the Democrats, and you had Democrats voting with us in the only bipartisan vote to shut down this impeachment.

In college I took a class that included discussing the difficulty in putting together a meaningful, statistically accurate, poll. One of the first topic is the statistical importance of polling people that don't take polls! Today it's my impression that we don't even try and conduct accurate polls.

The USAToday can report that Trump's approval rating is 40%, lower the Obama's, and most people will take that as fact. First of all, as a white, Irish, professional, male, I don't take polls. In fact, I don't answer my phone if your number isn't in it. If someone walks up to me at the mall and asks, "Do you have time for a few questions?", the answer is ALWAYS no. Second, there is nothing in these "polls" to suggest their methodology. When the USAToday reports that "Polls say.." Trump's approval rating is 40%, how do I know they didn't elusively poll lesbians at Cal Berkeley - a group I assume is fairly liberal? There is only an implied understanding that the poll was even distantly scientific. And they don't say exactly what question they asked to get these results. Was the question "Which to you like more, puppies or politics"? 60% of the people say puppies so they report only 40% of the people approve of the Prescient's work. OK maybe that's a stretch but you get the point. The exact question is critical.

Congress is said to have a 20% approval rating (depending where you look). What was the question they asked and who did they ask? "Compared to Hitler's Germany, how would you say the US House of Representatives is performing?". Da-Da 20% of people like Congress's work.

This post is intended to be about the politics of polling and as such a bit off topic.

In kindergarten there was this kid named Mary. Nobody liked her. We were pretty sure her cat was peeing on her shoes too.

yet you may have liked her more if she let you look up her dress while she was standing on the steps waiting for lunch.
see, I feel polls are never fair, if a poll taker happens to talk to more Dems then he talks to more Dems, then that is that poll's end results.

you know they say Vermont is a Democrat state, but if you ask me I will say I don't see it that way coming from the people I have talked to. but in the end the votes tell I am wrong

When you say "...her cat was micturating on her shoes too", are you suggesting that someone or something other than her not-so-loving cat was peeing on her shoes (possibly a classmate (or you)), or are are you saying that in addition to not being liked, she had the additional problem of urine filled footwear and that only her cat was soiling her Keds?

I'm pretty sure he meant that the: 'Evil, 'Spawn of Satan' cat was pissing on her shoes.'

But, that is just how I read it....I could be wrong.

You are doing just fine. One of my favorite charactors here over the years. Always liked the other two as well. Sad that Mr Colege missed the fun that even Kindergarteners and their pets have a solid enough grasp on, sader still that it went so weird. For my part, sorry.

Look at the last election. The Lame stream media would have you believe Hilary was going to crush Trump. but things did not work out so good for her. The Pols are used to push The Dems narrative at every turn.Got to have my cup of heli in the morning.

To your point, and going back to post #6:
I've posted the below screenshot before. It's the front page of the USAToday the night before the 2016 election. It's the same narrative they'd been running for months. Hillary has got this one in a slam dunk.

Today's "polls" are nothing more than a political tool to manipulate an election.

The front page of the paper today includes an article about Ukrainian medaling. I find that both comical and sad. There is medaling in our elections and it's not by the Ukrainians.
