FOX News buoys Obama’s approval ratings …

June 18, 2012

You read that right.

Yesterday’s  RCP’s poll-of-polls had Obama’s approval underwater by 1.9 points.

That’s not big news, but …

In an ironic twist, the only poll that had more folks approving than disapproving was the poll conducted by FOX News.

You know, the FOX News that’s biased against Obama

Go figure ….

Polls: the ‘normal’ biases are back … whew!

April 16, 2012

A month ago — in a post titled  Head-scratching polling results — we pointed out:

… right-leaning FOX News has Obama +2 in approval, Rasmussen and Bloomberg — also usually a bit to the right — have him +1.

But, left-leaning Gallup has Obama down 7 points.

Far left-leaning CBS/NYT and ABC/Wash Post have him down 6 points and 4 points, respectively.

I thought those results were quite curious.

Well, I’m happy to report that the planets are back in alignment.

According to RCP, right-leaning Fox has Obama 6 points under water.

Left-leaning CNN, ABC, and Washington Post have him 5 to 6 points above water.

We’re back to the old normal … whew.
