Is this possible? Do 9% really approve of Cheney?

  1. Let's see, Reid has declared that our troops have lost in Iraq, he's doing everything in his power to see that they do lose and is jubilant to see Bush humiliated. Then when the corrupt old bastard is called on it, he tries to make Cheney the issue? Another example of why the democrats cannot be trusted with the country's security.

    Cheney 9% Approval: Not Exactly

    In the widely covered exchange with Vice President Dick Cheney, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reportedly said:

    "I'm not going to get into a name-calling match with somebody who has a 9 percent approval rating."

    Perhaps that was a bit of rhetorical excess, because while Cheney's ratings are low, they are a long way from 9%. Here, via the Polling Report, are the four most recent measurements of the Vice President's job rating:


    Note: the job approval questions posed by Time, Gallup and CNN ask whether respondents approve or disapprove. The choices on the Harris poll are excellent, pretty good, only fair and poor - the results here are for excellent/good and only fair/poor. Harris did report a 6% "excellent" rating for Cheney, but we don't think that's what Reid had in mind.

    The polls show Cheney's approval ratings at between 29 and 34%.

    So, where are all the people who like to call republicans liars?
  3. They quoted 20% today on the news.
