Harbingers … and a tGif open thread

“A recent poll by Quinnipiac showed that President Obama’s support among Latinos has eroded. It’s down from a high of 67% to 59%.”

– Geraldo Rivera on Fox & Friends, July 13, 2012, 8+ a.m. ET

Of course, the second I heard Rivera bring up that poll result, I had to go to Quinnipiac’s site to see for myself.

But hang on a second. What was the first poll result I saw on Quinnipiac’s home page? “July 12, 2012 – American Voters Say Health Care Law Is A Tax Hike, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; Most Want Arizona-Type Immigration Law In Their State” (direct link)

Now, I have never been a big fan of Quinnipiac, which I’d superficially written off as a probable liberal polling institution. However, my attitude is perhaps wrong-headed.

Dick Morris pounds the point constantly that it is critical to poll “likely voters,” not “registered voters.” That usually makes me inclined to give more weight to Scott Rasmussen’s polling results since he polls likely, not registered. Of course, Rasmussen is clearly a conservative, and it seems that other MSM outlets tend to blow off his results.

Yet, my personal views aside, the mainstream media back up Rivera.

To whit, Huffington Post: “Obama Slips With Latino Voters: Quinnipiac Poll“:

President Barack Obama still has a considerable lead with Latino voters, but it may be slipping, according to a poll out Wednesday from Quinnipiac University.

The poll found Obama at 59 percent support, lower than many other polls that put him at a higher advantage. Fox News Latino points out that its poll from March showed 73 percent of Latinos supported Obama, while a USA Today/Gallup poll in June found he had 66 percent support.

Other findings … [...]

Another poll from the university, this one released on Thursday, sheds some light onto how voters feel about immigration, an issue important to Latinos. Most American voters, 55 percent to 39 percent, support Obama’s recent policy change that will allow some undocumented young people to stay in the United States temporarily should they meet certain requirements, according to the poll. About half say it would not impact their decision in November, but 30 percent would be less likely to vote for him. Nearly 20 percent say they are more likely to vote for Obama based on his deportation directive.

How about them apples.

You can find more news stories on Quinnipiac’s important poll via Google News.

: : : : : : : : : : : :

P.S. I couldn’t find the new Latino poll at Quinnipiac’s site because their search engine sucks. I used “Latino Obama,” and got no results. That’s why I turned to Google News. But I’m glad I did because it is important to see how many news stories are covering this diminution in President Obama’s support among Latinos.

After all, it is Friday the 13th.

And WTF has happened to Memeorandum.com? Not finding the word “Latino” on its current home page, I turned to “Memeorandum River,” the reverse chronological list of stories. But there wasn’t a single headline covering Quinnipiac’s poll results.

An easy explanation would be that the MSM buried the Latino story by not using the word in their headlines. But Huffington Post did. See above. Memeorandum has featured Huffington in the past. But not this time. Hey, it could be that Memeorandum’s “bots” simply failed to pick up the news. Who knows.

    David Frantz, head of Obama’s clean energy program, admits that they never intended to create “green” jobs.

    … and by definition they are not a multiplier for job creation.

    So it’s ok that green jobs were not created because that never was their intention. Or at least that is what they now claim.

      Kind of like the “shovel-ready” jobs weren’t shovel ready.

  • TexMexSoup

    Latinos are starting to wake up & smell the democrat shit. It is going to be a long road to get passed the victim / minimum wage mentality that we have been conditioned to believe. The propaganda on the Latino stations is such smutty democrat rhetoric, it really does confuse many Latinos. Especially the Mexican immigrants, it’s all about immigration non stop and how America hates the Mexicans. They seriously play on these folks. It is changing slowly but it is.

    This is for all those who doubted Larry Johnson’s article “Obama Ready to Economically Rape the Elderly and claimed that the video about the President’s manipulation of the law to delay implementation of the medicare cuts until after the election (“The President’s $8 Billion Coincidence). The GAO confirms that the $8 billion project is keyed to fooling seniors until after the election.

    “A recent report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has laid bare the Obama administration’s effort to delay the impact of Medicare cuts in the health care law until after the 2012 election.

    Under the new law, cuts to Medicare Advantage funding would force many seniors off their preferred health plans. This aspect of the law was originally intended to go into effect before the election in November, but fearing the political backlash, the administration launched an $8.35 billion “demonstration project” that would effectively delay the cuts until after the election.

    The GAO report urged the administration to cancel the project, citing its numerous “design shortcomings” and noting that the program fails to “conform to the principles of budget neutrality,” meaning the $8.35 billion is not offset by spending cuts or other revenue, and will have to be borrowed.

    The Weekly Standard’s Jeffrey H. Anderson has written extensively about the controversial program here.

    “This is a grossly underreported story—one aimed right at what is perhaps Obama’s most vulnerable point: his amazing decision to pay for Obamacare largely by looting from Medicare,” Anderson told the Washington Free Beacon in an email. “What’s more, it ties in the corruption and lawlessness of his administration and hearkens back to the Cornhusker Kickback, the Louisiana Purchase, and Gator Aid.”

    • jrterrier

      what struck me is that none of the stories report the cause of death.

      • scottymac54

        Sure. Was he “Breitbarted”?
        This kid is exactly the age, where, if you are idealistic and committed to a cause, and discover the cause itself is a lie, you’ll take steps to expose a fraudulent plan, use your access to information to substantiate oppo leads, etc.
        Also, consider the Chicago venue, and the fact that Romney’s team felt compelled to respond to the news….it’s as if they knew they’d be crucified by bad actors and presstitutes for “exploiting” the tragedy, but were determined to call attention to it anyway.
        No one, actively involved in either campaign, will be able to escape the realization that his friends and family are not likely to receive any sort of verifiable, conclusive facts regarding his death, in Chicago, in an election year. My heart goes out to them.
        People with connections to Barky just seem to inexplicably die, and, hopefully, somewhere, some citizen journalist will feel compelled to probe further into the circumstances of his death, if not for any other reason, but as a “check and balance” for the family’s benefit.
        Critics always squawk and hiss “conspiracy” but, the truth is, Americans are keenly interested and keep a skeptical but open eye on what is going on, because they sense the last several years have been anything but “business as usual”, and these accounts seem almost to be daring us to stand up and question.

        • buzzlatte3

          jeez, scotty you’ve stated what has only been running around my unconscious mind. i try to be measured and not make unfounded allegations. but your post sure does raise questions. we’ll see if his parents and friends express any concerns.

          the breitbart death did seem incredibly precipitous. he had been drinking that evening at a local pub and showed no signs of distress. his website continues pretty strongly but those who are running it cannot hold a candle to breitbart’s presence or vigor.

    Since this is an Open Thread, I’d like to recommend Ed Klein’s book, The Amateur. I’d requested our library purchase it; it just came in this week, (I’m a frequent user of the public library). Most have probably already read it. I found it to be an easy read as well as interesting. While much of what’s included wasn’t new to me, it was interesting to find the information reinforced by other sources or from “the horse’s mouth” such as the secret meeting related “In the President’s Secret Service” affirmed by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, except he actually told what took place in the meeting. Also, there was information about Ted Kennedy’s support of Obama (not shared by all of the Kennedy Clan) and how Caroline Kennedy was shunned by Obama AFTER the election. Caroline, however, will vote for Obama again because being a Democrat she can’t vote for anyone else – another example of putting Party before Country. And, there was much more.

    I’m really disappointed that your posts are not attracting a better quality of Oborg. At least the Oborgs that respond to Larry take the time to cut and past lengthy arguments from the Soros blog respondent website. Your Oborgs seem content with an opening ad hominem attack, followed by ridiculous, unproveable assertions.

    “Here’s the evidence Mr.Romney. Your turn to explain…” Barry’s team is making Mitt’s “corporate” team look clownish and incompetent at that. It’s fun watch the Mitt campaign implode! The GOP and the Karl Rove team should learn a lesson that you don’t mess around with the Democratic party

  • http://twitter.com/geffbeck jbeck

    Obama is winning the ad wars right now. The public trusts him on every issue over Mitt by a mile! Biden’s priceless line at La Raza, “Mitt won’t show you his papers, but he wants you show him your papers?” Mitt and his flunkies should ask themselves why the NAACP gave McCain a standing ovation but booed him.

    • binky354

      Can’t believe you’re so ignorant and ill-informed. Did you bother to watch Mitt’s entire address to the NAACP? You’re pathetic.

      • shelldoll2

        It’s amazing the Obots and many young Black Americans don’t know a WHITE WOMAN (Hillary type anyone?) established the NAACP.

        • shelldoll2

          Even if you check the internet they fail to mention the woman that started the organization. They talk about Thurgood Marshall, and later civil rights activists.

          • shelldoll2

            Okay, I finally found a Wikipedia entry where they admit the idea and establishment of the NAACP was spearheaded by…..dun dun dun….WHITE PEOPLE.

            I received my information about said white people by reading a book written by…dun dun dun…A Black Man.

    • Hokma

      Unfortunately the last survey we saw showed that the public does NOT believe the Obama commercials but does believe the Romney commercials.
      Most Americans are not stupid like you are. Unfortunately for the Obamination his belief that people were stupid is not working for him.
      By the way, except for one moment the NAACP did give Romney a standing ovation.
      Go back and play with your ignorant Daily Koz Kidz.

    Right now the Barry surge among Latinos is putting Texas into play! Mitt is going to be begging his billionaire buddies to dump some money into Texas, as he is barely 5 points ahead of Barry! Mittbots are running scared and clutching at straws. The Barry election in 08 is the next best thing after the the Dixiecrat split and Blue Dog split in recent years. It’s gotten all the DINOs and Puma racists, misogynists and Wall St shills out of the party into sad deserted quarters like this blog!
    Love to see the dejected faces of GOP shills like these everyday!

      • http://twitter.com/geffbeck jbeck

        Neither! I just need to watch the polls. And tight now Mittbots are scrambling around as Barry’s sewn up all the swing states. He’s got a 10 point lead in Virginia and is about 8 points elsewhere. Ohio? Fuggeddabbouit! Sherrod Brown is leading by 11 points over his GOP rival despite being outspent 5X! Romney is finding out what the Beatles sang is true. Money can’t buy you love! OK hombre! Save your outrage, when you go ballistic hearing Mitt’s concession speech in Boston Commons! It wld be funny to watch Mittstorm’s concession speech after he’s lost his 3 homestates – Mass, Mich. and California!

        • HoosierinDixie

          Why haven’t you answered my question of why Obama is running attack ads in California and Georgia of all places if he has the race all wrapped up? Why does he feel the need to perpetuate the lie about Mitts tie to Bain after 1999 when several of his own supporters and news outlets have debunked it? I’m not a poll watcher but I bet his internal polls are showing something quite different. Run along now son, I think your mother is making hotpockets for lunch.

      I am strill amazed that the old media has no shame and is persisting in perpetuating lies at the behest of Obama. You are right, why not look at Obama’s college years or even put more of a microscope on his years as a community organizer. I would also like to see covered his primary and general election to U.S. Senate where mysteriously sealed divorce records for Blair Hull and Jack Ryan were published

      • HoosierinDixie

        I am surpirised that a reporter actually asked Jay Carney about releasing the college records. Now that was a historic moment. Of course Jay acted shocked and appalled at the notion that somone would have the audacity to question the king.

        • getfitnow

          It’s fair game. Wasn’t he billed as the most intelligent POTUS evah? Well, prove it. Based on his performance and ego, if his college records reflected the brainiac he’s supposed to be, we’d know about it.

        Goodness me! They can’t look into Obama’s past with a microscope. Why he might be hiding something.

        I am not a Birther by any means. But I got a copy of my plain old birth certificate in two weeks. It takes the President two years? Yeah, and the dog ate my homework.

        Where are all his past activities other than the Harvard Law Review?

        Why was he allowed to travel to a country banned for American citizen travel?

        I guess his poor downtrodden “working class” family pulled some strings.

        Campaigning for cousin Odinga, he of the Christian church burnings.

  • elizabethrc

    Bronwyn, I tend to agree with your initial opinion about Quinnipiac. They have a rather long record of borderline bias…not hugely so, but just enough to slip under most people’s radar.
    I think this is the same case we’re beginning to see on the MSM: they run the risk of looking foolish by not reporting the growing mistakes and anti-public sentiment decisions of this White House. It’s just not working for them anymore. People would have to be deaf, dumb and blind to ignore Pelosi and Wassy-Schultz’s (and Cutter’s) lies and provably ridiculous statements

    • BronwynsHarbor

      God yes. Pelosi’s obscene attack on Romney re his NAACP speech is beneath contempt*.

      And I got an e-mail from Stephanie Cutter this morning. She is piling on re Bain. She is frightening. For a great contrast, there’s Gail Gitcho, Gov. Romney’s exceptional spokesperson. I hope Hemmer’s show puts up the video of Gitcho this morning. She is highly effective, and very pleasant … not to mention** civilized (!).

      Footnotes:
      *How can an act or statement by an indivdual be “beneath contempt”? Maybe I should send that phrase to Greg Gutfeld so he can add it to his list of annoying phrases that he brings up often on The Five. I digress.

      ** “not to mention” — another phrase for Gutfeld.

      I need to watch my use of these meaningless phrases. Ha.

      • http://twitter.com/geffbeck jbeck

        Pelosi is an old style Democratic pol – think Wellstone, Gene McCarthy. Or the late great union activist – Mother Jones. She takes no prisoners, and is responsible for making John Boehner look like a fool in the House. Barry and his friends aren’t your country club Democrats. They’re working class salt of the earth

        • shelldoll2

          Working class? How many working class families can afford to pay for their kid to go to Columbia and Harvard? We were a working class family and that was way beyond our means. Most working class kids attend state schools.

          BTW where is Obama’s outrage about the burning of Christian churches and killing of Christians in Kenya? That’s his “home country” according to his wife. He and she claim to be Christians.

          Obama never said he went to college on student loans or grants so where did this “working class” money come from?

          How did he manage to connect with Rezko, Ayers, and other big players? How did he and Michelle happen to live in a high end Chicago neighborhood? Working class folks didn’t live there.

          Funny how court records were unsealed and Obama took credit for bills some black folks spent 20 years fighting for.

          Remember the open mic with Jesse Jackson and Julian and Bond?

          They both agreed Obama looks down on Black Americans.

          Keep digging. I’m a descendant of slaves and Obama is not. I owe him no loyalty.

          • Retired_from_SPOnaj

            Good post. Actually, Obama is a descendent of slave owners and slave traders. He probably thinks that this means that the two of you “have something in common.”

          • shelldoll2

            Not only that Nancy owns her own private jet. I’m sure all “working class” people have one of those.

  • shelldoll2

    I have a theory. The Latinos that struggled, worked, played by the rules, and followed the law to become citizens are not happy.

    I never said it before but I saw this coming. Obama continues to be ignorant, out of touch, and surrounded by advisors who have no life or political experience. He’s lost the Clintons. Hillary can’t campaign because of her position. Bill said the Obama campaign was under the mistaken impression that he worked for them.

    These are two people that have survived decades of political attacks and turmoil. It’s fairly obvious to any observer that they have withdrawn their support.

    I bet the Big Dog polls higher among Latinos than Obama does. Obama has been touting Bill’s successes lately. There’s just one problem: Bill’s achievements are not his and he can’t ride that horse anymore. That horse broke through the fence and it can’t be mended.

  • FormerLiberal9

    Most Latinos are Roman Catholic. Most Latinos are against same sex marriage. Wonder if that has anything to do with Obama’s decrease in support.

    • Madame_deFarge

      Most Latinos are also Catholic.

    • FLDemFem

      More likely it was the farce of trying to make the Church subsidize birth control through health care plans. That was a direct assault on their core beliefs. If he thinks he can do that, what else does he think he can make them do that is against their religion? Same sex marriage isn’t an issue, really. The Catholic Church has always refused to marry people who divert from their idea of suitable. They will not marry divorced persons, persons not of their own faith, some churches will not marry people from outside their parish. It would not be an “issue” that Obama came out in same-sex marriages since the Church could refuse to marry them without consequences.

  • Dissentispatriotic

    I don’t have names or links, but did hear a reporter or pundit say that 3 or 4 of current Bain executives, DEMOCRATS, and some active supporters of Obama 2012, said that Romney had left all active operation at Bain suddenly, in Feb of 99, to answer the urgent call from the Olympics. Every one backed his story that he had no operational function, they never saw him in the office, and that he was telling the truth. I may have seen that on Fox but you know damn well it won’t be brought up again by anyone else.

    • FormerLiberal9

      I have a very liberal friend who every time he disagree with something I have said he says, ” I’ll have to go and Fact Check That”. It’s like the progressive Bible or something. So here is what they have to say to Obama’s dishonest attack on Ronmey.

      • Dissentispatriotic

        Thank you for this! Why won’t the WaPo print a retraction and correction? Obama team knows all they have to do is plant a little seed consisting of a word or a phrase and that’s all the public needs to take off in another direction. Facts and entire story, be damned.

        • HoosierinDixie

          You are exactly right. Jrterrior posted an exchange between Anderson Cooper and David Gergen on another thread about the lies. Anderson asked David if it helps Obama even if it is a lie. WTF!!!!

  • BronwynsHarbor

    OT: May I just say that I am finding it impossible to get swept up in the Bain brouhaha.

    For starters, I suspect that I wouldn’t have the time or patience to read all of the “news stories” and address each of them.

    Then there is that the vast majority of those “likely voters”:

    (1) will never hear much about the story; and

    (2) if those likely voters DO hear about the story, they may see that Obama et al.’s attacks smack of desperation.

    • BronwynsHarbor

      (Now I’m talking to myself)

      Perhaps I should put that comment in a post. But why give those hatchet men and women the time of day?

      • FormerLiberal9

        Or give them publicity for their awful show. Silence is sometimes the best policy.

    • Flop_Flipper

      I fully expect the Obama gang will continue with their Bain allegations. It’s really all they have to offer. They are banking on most Americans getting their news from their loyal media allies. So they want to set the tone, paint the picture of Romney as some scary dude that might even be a felon running for president. It’s so ridiculous that a sane person should have issues with the proposition. Unfortunately, most of Obama’s supporters tend to be clinically insane.

      • elizabethrc

        Is it possible that the Obama folks haven’t paid attention to the rapidly diminishing viewership of their favorite stations, while FOX continues to grow?

          nbc bought out microsoft in msnbc. they are revamping in to deliver “news” it is a step in the right direction. i hope the leftie hacks there all get pink slips.

          I don’t think the Obots notice much of anything that doesn’t confirm their distorted world view.

        I noticed on the Morning Schmo Show on MSLSD that Screamin’ Dean, Mika the Moron, Donnie Dooch, and the others completely ignored the responses to the Bain attack and just repeated the same lies. In fact, Scarborough himself did nothing to quelch the continued lies.

      Even CNN is debunking the Obama campaign claims on this.

        That may have been where I heard it. I think it was actually John King, the Boston native who appears to love the O man, gave these facts when asked by Blitzer. I was shocked. Thanks for that reminder.

          It was John King. He has an article that explains why it is essential to tie Romney to Bain in 1999. Apparently Bain acquired an abortion disposal company in 1999.They want to use that fact to pit the evangelicals against Mitt. There were also some companies that went bellyup after that time that they have used in previous attack ads. But all this happened after Mitt left for the Olympics so it will not stick without the lie that Mitt was still running the show. I think Mitt’s campaign will do a good job setting the record straight but I expect more dirty deeds from the Obama thugs.

      i noticed also that while Morning Joe covered the story, it seemed obligatory rather than loaded with gusto as you might expect if there were a kernel of truth to it. most importantly, there was no joy in Mikaville when it was being reported. it was as if even Mika had to concede (to herself) that it was a low, vile charge and that her idol had jumped the shark.
