This morning, I made the mistake of watching Morning Joe as he railed against all things Obama. He selectively used the ABC/WAPO poll to enhance Obama's negatives and ignore the positives. Yes, Obama got a bounce to 46/50 when he was 41/56 in the November 2013 poll.

The thing that got me the most is how he kept saying that Obama is getting a 37% approval on his handling of the Healthcare law. Everyone knows about the roll-out problems, that's not news. So Joe slowly moved to saying that only 37% of Americans "approve" of ACA in this ABC poll when the poll clearly reports a 47/48 approval.  I saw his lies deepened and evolve right before my slightly closed eyes. So I did what should have been done earlier; which is go to the source.  Sure enough, he lied through his teeth and was never challenged by the sheep who heard him.

Yes, these are the real numbers.  The ACA is getting more popular and con heads are starting to explode all over the country.  The numbers from:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
