Obama pollster: reporters should stop covering
polls in 2014
After a year of seeing President Obama’s approval ratings plummet, the president’s pollster is offering a strikingly candid and
pessimistic New Year’s resolution.
Reporters should go the next “year without reporting any public polling data,” Joel Benenson, president and CEO of Benenson Strategy Group,
What? So now that the polls aren't doing Obama any favors, Joel Benenson
says the media
shouldn't report the results of public opinion polls anymore.
It takes some huge brass balls for a professional pollster who makes his living on getting his polling results heard to suggest this.
Would he be saying this if the polling results were positive right now for his man Obama? Methinks not.
According to him, polls should only be reported from now on (and specifically in 2014) if they are detailed enough to reflect the underlying
for why the polling results turned out that way.
Hmmm. Were those the guidelines that Joel Benenson used during his "guiding role in Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign"? Why change the
propaganda rules now, Joel?
There's not much more I have to say about this, other than it is utterly ridiculous and absurd given his profession and the current political
climate. Where do these people come from?
