Bozell Challenges Media to Report the Truth: Self-Described Conservatives Surging, Obama Support Dropping
New polling data released today from Gallup and Rasmussen caused Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell to issue a challenge to the liberal media, report the facts:
The media are obsessed with polling and public opinion data - unless, of course, it goes against their narrative. The cause and effect is clear: the more America learns about Obama's radical agenda, the more they are galloping in the other direction.
"Americans, by a 2-to-1 margin, say their political views in recent years have become more conservative rather than more liberal, 39% to 18%," noted Lydia Saad in a July 6 news release at Gallup.com.
In fact, Saad noted, "more members of all three major partisan groups indicate that their views have shifted to the right rather than to the left." Last month, Gallup revealed that "40% of Americans call themselves conservative," the highest level since 2004.
What's more, pollsters at Rasmussen report that 56% of Americans rate Obama fair or poor on the economy compared to the 50% who disapproved of his economic policies just a week ago.
