Wingnuts: Sure, Josh Duggar Molested Kids, But Barack Obama Molested America Way Worse

Are your kids safer with Josh Duggar or with THIS GUY?
Pollsters are hilarious sometimes. Talking Points Memo has the results of a new poll from Public Policy Polling, asking people which do they like better:  The Duggar family, kid-touching and all, or Barack Obama? You will be so shocked to find out that a full 67% of folks who voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 still like the Duggars better than Obama, whereas 87% of Obama voters think Obama is better than kid-touchers and the people who cover for them. THERE’S YOUR PARTISAN DIVIDE, AMERICA. Read more on Wingnuts: Sure, Josh Duggar Molested Kids, But Barack Obama Molested America Way Worse…

Alaska Pretty Sure Sarah Palin Clan Is Hilarious Fighty Garbage

It's the Wasillabilly Bayeux Tapestry
One reason to love Public Policy Polling (PPP): They often throw in an extra question near the end of the poll, about something goofy, simply because they can. Like asking Ohio voters who was responsible for killing Osama bin Laden: Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? (Weep for America: 15 percent said Romney, 47 percent said “unsure.”) Or asking Republicans who think Benghazi is the worst political scandal in history if they know where Benghazi is. In their new poll of Alaska voters, PPP added one extra question about the Great Wasillabilly Bumfight of 2014: Read more on Alaska Pretty Sure Sarah Palin Clan Is Hilarious Fighty Garbage…

Poll Suggests Ari Fleischer’s Nifty Twitter Conspiracy Theory Just Might Catch On Among Republican Voters

For about an hour the other day, former George W. Bush spokesman Ari Fleisher had himself a nice case of righteous indignation when he thought he saw something nasty in the Twittershed: Could it be, he asked, that Barack Obama got special privileges on the Twitter box? Turns out that Fleischer was kinda sorta just plain wrong — he’d copypasted the POTUStweet into another document and included the “@BarackObama” part, and then went and had a very embarrassing Public Huff.

New Poll: Michele Bachmann Already Losing Her House Race

Here is an important 2014 election update brought to you by AHAHAHAHAHAHA: Michele Bachmann is trailing her Democratic challenger for her House seat by two points, according to a new survey from Public Policy Polling: The survey…shows Democrat Jim Graves leading Bachmann, a four-term congresswoman and former GOP presidential candidate, 47 percent to 45 percent. The results are within the poll’s 4.4 percentage point margin of error. This is a pretty humiliating thing, as a Republican, to lose your seat in Minnesota’s most conservative congressional district. Your Wonkette is going to have a drink to, uh, celebrate this thing that has not yet happened and speculate extremely prematurely on what Michele Bachmann might do with her time after her stench is ejected from the landfill known as Congress, for being too foul. Let’s have some ideas, after the jump!  Read more on New Poll: Michele Bachmann Already Losing Her House Race…

Good News: Most Americans Reject Conspiracy Theories! Bad News: A Big Chunk Of Americans Believe Them!

So, how should we react when a poll shows that over a third of Republicans and independents say they “believe that a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government, or New World Order”? (When you factor in the 15% of Democrats who fear the black helicopters, the total comes down to 28% overall.) Should we worry that nearly a third of the electorate seems unhinged, or should we take comfort that the vast majority of Americans won’t even notice the FEMA camps Our Glorious Leader is setting up, or should we just roll our eyes and remind ourselves that you can get about 10% of people to answer “yes” to just about any damnfool question? Since we’re in a hopeful mood today, we’re going to see the glass as 2/3 full of sanity. Maybe. Read more on Good News: Most Americans Reject Conspiracy Theories!

Pollster’s Mean Questions Make Big Tough Conservatives Weep

Public Policy Polling has separated itself from the other polling outfits through one simple trick: Its polls include weird questions. It’s how we found out, for example, that God had a 52-percent approval rating last year, and that only 19 percent of GOP voters polled believed Obama was going to heaven. They are not questions of any dire importance, which is why it’s easy to chuckle at the results and move on to the ones that actually tell us real things. But this time … this time Dean Debnam and company have gone a bridge too far: They asked 979 likely Wisconsin voters how they felt about “conservative media figures.” Bias! Outrage! Somebody have a freakout! Read more on Pollster’s Mean Questions Make Big Tough Conservatives Weep…

Hillary Clinton Is Your Future President, Again

You Democrats keep falling for Hillary Clinton. It’s been less than two years since her and her husband’s completely obnoxious path to losing the Democratic presidential nomination, the best thing that ever happened to her. She gets to fly around the world doing whatever while no one really pays attention but assumes she’s doing well, she’s out of elected office and therefore not hated, and recently she’s been meme-ified in on some Internet photo thing that lasted like two days. You people, you love her. She has an 86% percent favorability among Democrats. You love her and will make her president, in the future. Read more on Hillary Clinton Is Your Future President, Again…

Pete Hoekstra’s Lie-Filled Racist Ad Surprisingly Unpopular

Admit it, cynical, smug blog reader: You thought that Pete Hoekstra’s Senate ad about “Debbie SpendItNow,” featuring an Asian lady riding a bicycle through Asian rice paddies and taunting Michiganers about how lazy and jobless they are through her cartoonish broken English, would be one of those things where the lamestream media shouted “racist” and “completely offensive” while Hoekstra’s popularity numbers nevertheless rose astronomically as a populist backlash to the lamestream media shouting “racist” and “completely offensive.” You thought there would be an excellent chance of this happening, since nothing good ever happens in American politics. And yet Pete Hoekstra is now comically unpopular! What a world. Read more on Pete Hoekstra’s Lie-Filled Racist Ad Surprisingly Unpopular…

Today’s Most Popular Democrat Is Not Barack Obama

The statistics whizzes at Public Policy Polling called up almost 600 Ameritards to ask them who was the coolest among these five individuals — Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, or Joe Biden. Everyone said, “Joe Biden, cuz he’s rad.” OK, OK, no they didn’t, because Biden is never allowed to win anything. Read more on Today’s Most Popular Democrat Is Not Barack Obama…

Lindsey Graham Can’t (Politically!) Satisfy His Base

A new poll says that if Lindsey Graham had to run for the Republican primary today, he would either totally or probably lose, which must be so harsh on his self-esteem. In “Lindsey Graham in Trouble with S.C. GOP Faithful” [PDF], a new groundbreaking research paper, the numbers outfit Public Policy Polling says 57% of South Carolina conservatives “pledge to vote for an unnamed primary challenger who is to Graham’s right,” because Graham talks to libruls all civil-minded and such. “Civil” is for wars, not for politics!
