Stan Greenberg, pollster extraordinaire. He’s got this polling company with Carville. Stan Greenberg is married to Rosa DeLauro, a congresswoman from Connecticut. Enough said. National Journal: “Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg is out with a must-read polling memo this morning, which offers some eye-opening advice to President Obama and his re-election team. After testing several of the president’s economic messages, he finds the argument that the economy is back on the right track polls miserably — and ‘produces disastrous results.'” I’ll read that to you again, folks.
Look at me when I say this to you. Greenberg, Democrat pollster from the Clinton era along with Carville and The Forehead. “After testing several of the president’s economic messages, he finds the argument that the economy is back on the right track polls miserably — and ‘produces disastrous results.'” Quote… This is from the memo. I have printed it out from Greenberg. “It is weaker than even the weakest Republican message and is 10 points weaker in intensity than either Republican message. A third said this message made them less likely to support Barack Obama,” meaning the economy-is-back message.
“Alarmingly, this message barely receives majority support among self-identified Democrats — and even less support among all other groups.” Let me translate for you: Obama’s running around on this virtual economy. “It’s back! We’re roaring back! Unemployment’s down! Jobs are being created! We have algae and pond scum out there that are gonna bring gasoline prices down!” It ain’t working. You’re probably saying, “Well, why? Why?” I’ll tell you why. Because Greenberg also discovers why it isn’t working. The voters don’t believe him. It’s even in the headline: “Dem Pollster: Voters Don’t Think America’s Back ”
