    Sen. Reid is no different than the Republicans who demagogue the issue. He's no different than Sarah Palin, Steve King, Rush Limbaugh. Enjoy the company.

      on the integrity of the polling service and the wording of the question.

      Like "Have Obama's liberal policies caused you to no longer approve of his job performance as President?".

      Yeah, we know how the polls are also tools ...

      If it's served to us and it's unpalatable but we smack our lips like it is the best thing we ever ate, how will the chef know to change the dish?

      as a gauge, then many Indpendents are left-leaning.

      If you use Afghanistan and Iraq as a gauge, same thing.

      Bunch of other issues too.

        And Obama is basically doing exactly what he said he'd do regarding Iraq and Afghanistan.
