    all this proves is that a large portion of the American public is even dumber than I thought.

    And they said reporters couldn't do more with less.

    Hell, this board is proof of that.

    I agree with that. With the coverage as evidence, most reporters wanted Obama to beat Hillary. That just translates into positive coverage in the fall.

    Just like most reporters wanted Bush to beat Gore in 2000.

    What a shocker that a conservative polling firm like Ras would waste their time on a stupid poll like this.

    It's true.

    The HBO documentary of the 2000 election showed how much reporters loved W and how boring they thought Gore was.

    1. Don't all reporters root for interesting stories? Isn't Obama the candidate more interesting than candidate McCain?

    2. Wouldn't that poll be the same no matter who was running for the Republicans and Democrats? After all, the Dittoheads have hammered the "liberal media" myth for years now. Hell, I bet if McCain was running with a D and Obama with an R, the results would be the same.

    3. Who got that box of donuts and standing ovation at the AP editors conference?

    Forty-one percent of voters still believed Saddam caused 9/11 a little over a year ago.


    Hey Rasmussen, how about mixing in a poll of the reporters THEMSELVES?

    Methinks that might be a smidge more accurate. But that's just me.

    You're a fucking idiot. If more than 10 people here are political reporters, I'd be shocked.
