Polls, polls and more polls–we are surrounded by poll results on all things political, but particularly at the national level, with President Obama’s job approval ratings and match up against all manner of Republican contenders measured every single day.
What amazes people, with rare exception, is that somehow the mainstream media polls nearly always show Obama edging out all Republican comers–even though the published facts that are the measure of his performance are devastatingly negative.
For example, Rasmussen Reports, arguably the most accurate polling company in America, because they have regularly picked the winner and margin of the presidential races, has a plethora of Obama-negative poll results on all of the important peripheral issues that would logically contradict such an outcome.
The first such poll, which asked 1,000 adults about the likelihood of the U.S. defaulting on the national debt within five years, 42% of adults polled sincerely believe we will.
Even though 48% do not share this same view–the more important point is that up until the middle of 2011, the answer would historically have been NONE.
However, it was just six months ago that Standard and Poors downgraded U.S. debt for the first time in American history–primarily due to Democrats unwillingness to tackle the greatest component of our annual trillion dollar deficits–unsustainable entitlement programs–when Republicans rightly demanded budget cuts in order to raise the national debt ceiling.
A second poll revealed that when asked about the repeal of Obamacare, 53% of likely U.S. voters at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care law, including 42% who strongly favor it.
Third, when asked recently about the most important issue that will determine how they will vote in the November 2012 elections–82% of Likely U.S. Voters saw the economy as a Very Important.
The fourth poll, for the week ending on February 26, 2012, a national telephone survey of 3,500 likely voters found that in a generic Congressional match-up, 43% of them would vote for the Republican in their district’s congressional race, if the election were held today–while only 39% would choose the Democrat instead.
In fact, a review of the 119 week history of this weekly poll, since December 27, 2009, shows that likely voters have, with only two exceptions, always chosen Republicans over Democrats.
As to likely voters’ opinion of President Obama’s performance, Rasmussen Reports has two graphs, which represent at least weekly polling frequency.
The “Presidential Approval Index,” which since January 21, 2009 has seen the Strongly Disapprove scores skyrocket and remain between 35% and 45% since, and Strongly Approve scores plummet from 45% to 25% in the first year–then fluctuate between 20% and 25% since then.
The second graph, “Presidential Job Approval,” has also plummeted since the beginning, and has fluctuating between 43% and 48% ever since the end of 2009.
A late February poll of 1,000 adults showed that 50% of them believed that government efforts to manage the economy do more harm than good–with just 27% of them believe government management actually helps the economy.
As an extension of this concept, another Rasmussen poll from mid-January found that 70% of American adults think a free market economy is better, whereas only 15% feel that a government managed economy is better.
Still, even Rasmussen polling, as recent as March 1-2, shows that in a heads up with Obama at 44%, Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney had just a slight edge against him, with 45%–a virtual “dead heat,” as it is within the margin of error.
What does it all mean?
Once the Republican nominee is finally identified, everyone will rally behind him, including the majority of disaffected Independents, because we are all terrified of the failed “Big Government” vision of Barack Obama–the worst, most liberal, Democrat president in history.

Earlier today, Buzzfeed’s Ben Smith announced on Twitter that video researcher Andrew Kaczynski had released “the mysterious Harvard/Obama/race video that the Breitbart folks have been talking about.” The video, which Kaczynski says was “licensed from a Boston television station,” shows a young Barack Obama leading a protest at Harvard Law School on behalf of Prof. Derrick Bell, a radical academic tied to Jeremiah Wright–about whom we will be releasing significant information in the coming hours. However, the video has been selectively edited–either by the Boston television station or by Buzzfeed itself. Over the course of the day, Breitbart.com will be releasing additional footage that has been hidden by Obama’s allies in the mainstream media and academia. Breitbart.com Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollak and Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro will appear on The Sean Hannity Show to discuss the tape. The full tape will be released tonight on Fox News’ Hannity.

NoisyRoom Note: This post does not reflect the opinion of this blog in some respects. NoisyRoom is a staunch supporter of Rick Santorum. Should Romney indeed get the nomination, we will support him in order to remove Obama from power. Romney is a Progressive on the right, however, he is a far better choice than Barack Obama. It is the opinion of this blog that if Barack Obama is reelected, our country will not survive as a Constitutional Republic.
But, in the interest of airing other points of view, we are posting the following post for readers to read and agree or disagree.

A post SuperTuesday song
We need a great deal of prayer,
and the voters, a huge dose of revelation.
Now we have the Marxstream media and GOP machinists imploring Republican voters to endorse the habitually lying, conniving globalista, and bankster-fascist, Mitt Romney, to end the process early. It reminds me of the scene in Braveheart where the torturer asks Wallace if he would like to recant, for his final relief.
Meanwhile Rick Santorum, a problematic, Vaticanist candidate who doesn’t deserve the nomination, continues to be propped up by the naivety bloc of the Christian Right. Like excited adolescents, they think themselves grown up, as they flex their muscles without enough in their brains.
Meanwhile the remnant, who know what’s really going on are split between intellectually ADHD Newt Gingrich, attempting to show us he is reborn, re-centered upon founders’ vision, and laissez-faire Ron Paul, the feast-or-famine candidate on the key issues of our time, whom Republican primary voters reject for his military isolationism and libertarian revisionism (plus an ornery attitude about Israel).
We need fervent prayer,
and the voters, a huge dose of revelation.
I suggest imploring Americans to vote Gingrich in the south and unless he further destroys himself, or Gingrich rebounds further, to pinch their noses and vote Santorum in the north (in Santorum’s case, only to take the process to the RNC floor). And as long as I’m doing the “I” thing, I will remind any readers that I would not vote for the controlled dialectic and its Romney, in November, were he nominated.
If Romney does lock this up, it is time to look for an alternative candidate in the General Election, for the sake of continuing to build a movement to educate America and thwart the Cloward-Piven, failed state strategy. It includes Romney as its new, Soros approved, Agenda 21 Quisling in the White House, there to be both the Wall Street target for the revolt and the acceptor of America’s Big Bail-Out with strings (and nooses for our sovereignty) from the globalist central bank network.
Whether one focuses upon the Marxists and Marxians involved and used, the central bank complex, or whatever exists of the Illuminati by that or any other description – the controlled dialectic, a.k.a., the Overton window is how the People’s chief enemy works, and when they have their chosen chessmen on both sides, they control all those managed within. It is well past time to topple the game board and break out of that Matrix.
We need inspired prayer,
and the voters, a huge dose of revelation.
We need Gingrich to be what he has committed himself to be and for Americans to see why they need him. Closing his campaign speeches he has offered, “my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor,” devoted to preserving sovereign, and authentic, and economically self-preserved America. Remembering the Contract with America, when the man signs his name to such a thing, he delivers.
This is essential to our self-re-education: how the candidates stand on the ground war against American’s essential sovereignty: “GOP Presidential Candidates on Agenda 21 ‘Sustainable Development.”

Good afternoon my NoisyRoom brothers and sisters! I am going to be writing about gun ownership, racism and Obama’s gun salesmanship. Just recently, the president of the United States was voted the best “Gun salesman of the year,” for a second year in a row. How is this possible? I thought Obama was to be the most peaceful president in recent history and would save us from each other? Let’s look into the government views on gun control and the recent gun industry’s sales numbers from the past year.
I have heard over the years from people that they are trying to take all the guns away from us and the government is ALL ANTI-GUN. Well, let’s take a step back and look at this statement with a different viewpoint.
The Government is all anti-gun: this can’t be true. You know why? The government has 80% of its employees issued firearms of one type or another. The U.S. military has the largest small arms contracts of any government body. For crying out loud! Both the IRS and the damned EPA have SWAT teams (heaven forbid you fart on the nearly endangered spotted squirrel frog – the EPA SWAT teams will get you for weapons of mass destruction on a frog).
So, it seems the government is not all out anti-gun. It would appear that they are against YOU, Joe Plumber, owning and having fun with guns and defending yourself. There is a town in Georgia where it’s against the law not to own guns and to not have them in the house. In my town in Idaho, you can buy guns out of the town paper, we can own suppressors, machine guns (pre-1968 – with the right ATF paperwork – always follow the laws) and what’s so ironic is that Coeur d’Alene has the lowest violent crime rate compared to my birthplace of Fresno, California and next door in Spokane, Washington. In these cities, they have had two murdered families, bomb scares, people gunned down by law enforcement and all this in just the last year. AN ARMED SOCIETY, IS A POLITE SOCIETY.
Let’s look at Obama’s success as a gun salesman and the gun industry’s sales numbers. So, Obama was to be America’s savior of America from Americans. How is that working out? We have had 3 years of Obama supporting violent anti-American and anti-capitalist riots and protests. Illegal immigration is worse than ever with the drug cartels and terrorists pouring into the U.S. in droves and getting free medical care, while setting up shop in the border towns at will. Looking at FAST AND FURIOUS, those lost guns have done an excellent job of killing dedicated border agents and other friendlies. So, America… do you feel protected by President Obama? Or do you feel you need to take your protection and liberty into your own hands?
Now, for the sales numbers… last year Ruger sales doubled. Remington Ammo hit $150 million. Kel-Tec is now the 3rd largest gun maker in America. They can’t keep up with the demand. Most people are waiting 6 months to a year just for their PMR-30 and SUB-2000 products. Cabela’s is now so busy in my own town that they have to use the old school number ticket system at the gun counter. P.F.I. – I am a mail order customer of theirs and they have had to back order all of their Condor tactical clothes. During the month of December last year, there were a reported 1.8 million NICS background checks.
Now, for the roots of gun control history. So, does anybody know when the first gun control law was passed?
It was not the National Firearms Act of 1934 by FDR after the St. Valentine’s Day shootings. The first laws were passed just after the Civil War ended and after the black slaves were freed. The local Democratic Party in several parts in the South, didn’t want them to defend themselves against the newly formed and Democratic-supported Klu Klux Klan. I mean really, Democrats! That sounds, I don’t know, just a little racist of you. These newly freed Americans were not even allowed to carry knives. They could be lynched at will. Oh yes, thanks for the mass murder at Fort Pillow, Nathan Bedford Forrest.
It’s also a known fact that one of the first things Hitler did was to disarm the population, so they could not defend themselves.
So, with all of the peace and love being passed around by Obama and his fellow Peaceniks, the Occupy Movement, I feel so warm and fuzzy on the inside. Here’s a question… why are there over 100 million gun owners and only 10 million NRA members? That’s a bad ratio of inaction. If the founding fathers were all alive today and we wanted to talk to them about guns and ammo, as well as gun ownership, you would find them at your local gun range checking out the 1911-A1, the AK-47 and the H & K MP-5 – having a blast!
