With President Obama’s ratings in the crapper and the mid-term elections next year, guess what his pollster’s New Year’s wish for the media is next year?
According to Politico, it’s not reporting polls.
That’s right, President Obama’s official pollster is getting sick and tired of all those polls showing his boss’s approval ratings in the tank and would like the media to stop reporting it. Here’s Joel Benenson’s direct quote:
“Go one year without reporting any public polling data. Rationale: Most public polling continues to be reported on strictly from a topline, horserace-type perspective that does nothing, or at best very little, to illuminate the news of the day. ALTERNATIVE IF THIS IS TOO STRICT: Go one year without reporting any public polling data that doesn’t provide in an in-depth analysis of the underlying dynamics that are truly shaping the data.”
