Funny little poll statistic that some people need to pay attention to if they're going to throw around a single poll stat from over a month ago as all-encompassing. In regards to Obama's comments on the Cordoba project being built:
From what you have heard or read, do you approve or disapprove of what President Obama said, or do you not know enough to say?
The plurality vote came in at "don't know enough to say". This was taken after the magic CNN poll about a mosque that doesn't exist. 41% aren't paying attention to it at all. So, to run around saying 70% (actually, 68%) disapprove, when a week later, 41% don't even know what the heck it is, seems a bit disingenuous.
Especially considering only 5% of the population even cared about the story the week of the CNN poll.
Isn't the entire goal to stir the pot? Everyone knows that a "poll" could mean asking just yourself- hell you'd log a 100% every time, unless you have multiple personalities- Disingenuous at best.
