Gallup: 2012 election had the largest gender gap in recorded history – The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room

The gender gap in the 2012 presidential election was the largest since Gallup began tracking the metric in 1952, according to data released by the polling firm on Friday.

President Obama won women by 12 percentage points, while Mitt Romney won men by 8. That’s a 20-point gender gap, edging out the 1984 election when Ronald Reagan defeated Democrat Walter Mondale in a landslide. Reagan won both men and women in that election, but carried men by 28 points and women by only 10 – a disparity of 18 points.

Could this be America’s Kumbaya Moment?

By The InkDemon

Imagine a political season without contention and accusations.

Just think about a movement made up of high-minded thinkers on both sides of the political spectrum who have America’s best interest in mind.

Can you put all that together into a political party where everyone comes together and elects a humble, spiritual person to be a great president?

Just close your eyes, clinch your fists, tighten your jaw and imagine all that happening.  Now imagine when you open your eyes all this has happened!

It’s America’s Kumbayah moment!

Everyone is sitting with their arms around the person next to them.  They are swaying from side to side.  There is a big spiritual campfire, and everyone is singing:

Kumbaya, my Lord, kumbaya
Kumbaya, my Lord, kumbaya
Kumbaya, my Lord, kumbaya
O Lord, kumbaya ….

If you believe the Main Stream Media, this has finally happened.  It called America Elect.  It’s a true third party with more than a million signatures on a petition that will place a Kumbaya candidate on the ballot in every major state.

REALITY CHECK!

No third party has ever been successful in American politics.  There have been many third parties, but they all succeeded in electing the candidate whom the third-partiers did not want.

Think back to George H. W. Bush.  He was a waffling wimp of a president.  Americans loved his predecessor and longed for someone who could be the next Ronald Reagan.

Ross Perot succeeded in getting Clinton electedThat person of the moment was Ross Perot.  The billionaire was an instant celebrity on the Main Stream Media.  They all wanted to hear what he was saying.  Their questions came slow and easy.Bill   In the news business, it’s what is known as puff-ball questions. Perot looked great.  Perot sounded great.  Perot’s logic was “flawless” to many.

He succeeded in getting William Jefferson Clinton elected to the presidency.

Lurking out there are several potential third party “movements”.  These movements are all as “big” as the egos of the billionaires behind them.

Excited MSNBC reporters say America wants America Elect

America Elect has a leader.  His name is Kahlil Byrd.

Would you believe Byrd was big-time Obama supporter in 2008 and has now turned into a “genuine” third partier with our interests at the center of his heart?

If you can believe all of that, the InkDemon has a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you, too.  Below are links to web sites ready to help you to achieve your own Kumbaya Moment.

CNN: New group paves way for alternative 2012 choice

American Thinker: Americans Elect: Obama’s Third-Party Tar Pit

There other Kumbaya Moments out there.  One is the GOOOH movement.  Their silly leader was or is an executive at Dell Computers.  He wants to completely replace every House of Representatives member with a GOOOH geek. 

Kumbaya, my Lord.  Kumbaya! 

The leader of this “movement” wants your money.  With your money in his fist, he will assemble a gaggle of Democrats and Republicans who will change (forever?) the House of Representatives.

His name is Tim Cox.  He’s armed with a Power Point demonstration that has “flawless” logic exactly like Ross Perot.

In reality, Cox like Ross Perot is just an empty suit.

The only way to defeat Obama and restore America to greatness is by electing the best available Republican candidate and then HOLD HIS FEET TO THE FIRE when he assumes office! 

Otherwise, we will be ruled by THEM!

Can we believe polls?

Rasmussen, Gallop, Pew, and Real Clear Politics.  These are all polls that some of us live by from day to day.  Marketers rely on polls.  Politicians live and die by polls.   Sadly, some vote by polls.

But now comes an article in Scientific American by Charles Seife that sheds new light on polls and those who report on polls.  The poll in question was released in September and concerned a “religion test” of 32 questions.  It pitted atheists/agnostics against several groups of believers.

The poll seemed to show that non-believers know more about religion than believers.  Time magazine headlined “Atheists know more about religion than believers”.

The article’s author pointed out that a Pew’s research was flawed because the sample for non-believer was small and the statistical margin of error revealed that there was no difference between the two groups polled.

Nevertheless, the headlines screamed and once again the public shrugged it shoulders and some once again may have accepted these polls on face value.

But should we accept the results of polls?  Back in the 1970’s a scandal rose over the so-called push-polls.  Candidates conducted bogus polls by polling only those groups who would ordinarily voted for said candidate.  The results was released to the media and touted in political ads.  Sure enough, the results in the other polls followed the bogus push-poll.

“The press leaped on the atheists versus believers headlines without critically examining the numbers.  The Pew study revealed less about our faith in God than it did about our faith in polls – which, far too often, is blind.”  Seife said.

The article is in the December 2010 edition and is  entitled, “The Science of ‘Disestimation’; Why we shouldn’t put our faith in opinion polls”.

Obama’s Approval: Long-term trends

President Barrack Obama has reverted to the campaign mode. 

This became apparent Thursday in his “major speech” on immigration.

Fox News analysts say that Obama is in the campaign mode.  This week besides his campaign style exaggerations about the failing economy, Obama seems to be reverting to what he believes worked for him in 2008.  

Just maybe it won’t work this time.

The Wall Street Journal reported today that:

The economy shed jobs in June as meager private-sector hiring failed to make up for the end of thousands of temporary census worker jobs, the latest signal that an already-slow recovery might be shifting into an even lower gear.

The graphic on he WSJ.com web site was more telling. LINK

The Journal added:

The unemployment rate declined to 9.5% from 9.7% in May, but not because more jobs were available. Instead, 652,000 workers dropped out of the labor force, meaning they weren’t counted as unemployed and looking for work.

The Rasmussen Poll reported that only 29% of the voters believe that Obama Stimulus helped the economy.   Some 43% believe it harmed the economy.

Perhaps what really turned Obama to the campaign mode was his poll ratings.  Rasmussen stepped back today and showed a graphic of Obama’s ratings going back to January 2009.  Here it is:


Rasmussen Approval Index

Obama has hit a new low.  If the ratings get any lower, will they go off the  chart?
