Obama's 63 percent average, according to a study released by Gallup last month, is the highest for a new president since Jimmy Carter (he clocked in at 69 percent during his first 100 days).THE GOOGAHGAH OBAMA HOOPLA IS REALLY JUST MSM PROPAGANDA. THE MSM FAVORED OBAMA WITH OVERWHELMINGLY POSITIVE COVERAGE DURING THE CAMPAIGN:
But John F. Kennedy bested Obama by more than 10 points, with 74 percent. Dwight Eisenhower enjoyed a 71 percent rating early on.
Even Richard Nixon averaged a 62 percent approval rating, just 1 point shy of Obama's.
Overall, Obama's average for the first three months matched the historical average of 63 percent for presidents since Eisenhower.
When you include presidents who took the oath mid-term -- after the death or resignation of a president -- Obama's 63 percent looks paltry.
Harry Truman enjoyed 87 percent approval, while Lyndon Johnson enjoyed 76 percent.
("Comments made by sources, voters, reporters and anchors that aired on ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts over the past two months reflected positively on Obama in 65 percent of cases, compared to 31 percent of cases with regards to McCain, according to the Center for Media and Public Affairs."),AND SINCE HE HAS BEEN POTUS:
THE PRO-OBAMA COVERAGE IS THE FLIP-SIDE OF THEIR NON-STOP DOOM'N GLOOM/"A DEPRESSION-IS-COMING" CRAP FROM THE TIME MCCAIN TOOK THE LEAD UNTIL OBAMA'S PORKASAURUS "STIMULUS" BILL WAS PASSED.
President Obama is getting more coverage, and more positive coverage, from the media than his two predecessors.
A new study of his first 50 days in office reveals the network evening newscasts devoted 27 hours, 44 minutes of coverage to his presidency. George W. Bush received just under eight hours in his first 50 days. Bill Clinton: 15 hours.
CBS had almost 11 hours. NBC was next with nine and a half. ABC had seven and a third. The study looked at the first half-hour of "Special Report" on FOX and we had 10 hours, 24 minutes.
THE FOURTH ESTATE HAS DEVOLVED INTO OBAMA GOEBBELS-LIKE PROPAGANDA MINISTRY.
DON'T BE DUPED.
