I don't believe in polls. To me they're meaningless and a serious waste of time. But I do believe in continual rampant media bias against the right and conservatives. So while liberals continue to punch out numbers that supposedly reflect how the nation feels about our President, here's another poll that will undoubtedly get little to no love.
From the Washington Post:
Democrats fumed last week at Vice President Cheney's suggestion that criticism of the administration's war policies was itself becoming a hindrance to the war effort. But a new poll indicates most Americans are sympathetic to Cheney's point.
Seventy percent of people surveyed said that criticism of the war by Democratic senators hurts troop morale -- with 44 percent saying morale is hurt "a lot," according to a poll taken by RT Strategies. Even self-identified Democrats agree: 55 percent believe criticism hurts morale, while 21 percent say it helps morale.
The results surely will rankle many Democrats, who argue that it is patriotic and supportive of the troops to call attention to what they believe are deep flaws in President Bush's Iraq strategy. But the survey itself cannot be dismissed as a partisan attack. The RTs in RT Strategies are Thomas Riehle, a Democrat, and Lance Tarrance, a veteran GOP pollster.
Their poll also indicates many Americans are skeptical of Democratic complaints about the war. Just three of 10 adults accept that Democrats are leveling criticism because they believe this will help U.S. efforts in Iraq. A majority believes the motive is really to "gain a partisan political advantage."
Of course, despite its bipartisan merit polls like this are meaningless to the Left because they don't reflect negatively on Bush and of course, troop moral isn't important when you have 2,000 unknown pollsters (in a country of 300million+ denizens & a 100million+ voters) telling us what the current nation's temperature is on a daily basis.
