Politico Beclowns Itself Again - 'Barack Obama's Approval Ratings Rising With Jews' - In Israel

In spite of its obvious agenda and its staff riddled with ObamaBot Journolistas, the Politico continues to masquerade as a serious news site, and some people actually treat it as such.

In its latest spinfest, written by one Mackenzie Weinger, the Politico claims that President Barack Obama's approval ratings are growing by leaps and bounds among Jews in Israel:

In just a year, Jewish Israelis’ opinion of President Barack Obama has turned on its head, according to a new Saban Center for Middle East Policy poll.

A majority, or 54 percent, now say they have a favorable view of the U.S. president — a year ago, just 41 percent of those polled viewed Obama in a positive light.

In 2011, 39 percent say they have a negative opinion of Obama, another far cry from his 2010 numbers when 51 percent said they were not fans of Obama. That’s a net 25-point upswing for Obama in Israel.

The good news from Israel offsets the slight negative turn Obama has seen from Jewish American voters: In a Gallup poll released in September, four out of 10 said they disapproved of Obama, and his approval ratings fell from 60 percent in June to 55 percent.{snip}

The 2011 Public Opinion Poll of Jewish and Arab Citizens of Israel, conducted in conjunction with Zogby International, surveyed 1,010 people living in Israel in November 2011.

Gee, isn't it funny that the Politico story never mentions that the Saban Peace Center, who conducted the poll is run and financed by Chaim Saban, a major Democrat donor and financier?

And that the poll was conducted by an anti-Israel Arab-American John Zogby's firm, whose brother James is president of the vociferously Israel hating Arab American Institute?

Not only that, but the poll even admits it focused on1,010 Jewish and Arab citizens in Israel. What do you suppose the ratio of Jews to Arabs was, and how did they screen the kind of Jews they polled? Want to bet that a lot of them were American Jews living in Israel who still are Democrat voters, and Jews affiliated with far Left parties like Meretz?

This is nothing more than a transparent attempt to convince American Jews that President Obama isn't the most anti-Israel president in US history, and that they should line up like good little sheep and pull the lever for him again.

For the Politico to run this story without letting its readers know who was behind the poll and their obvious agenda is simply disgraceful.

please helps me write more gooder!

you can criticize any news organinzation you want, there are plenty. and over the course of the next year they will all make their case.
ff can call it disgraceful all he wants. it doesn't change a thing.
this is an orchaestrated program to re-elect hussein. and i use the word elect reluctantly.
the only thing i would be critical off ff in this essay, is our personal disagreement about achieving roman status. ff reluctantly clings to the belief that only a hussein second term will confirm that. while i, have already chosen to rejoice in my newfound roman citizenship.
no one is listening.
no one cares.
no one will listen or analyze what the un-employment numbers say.
no one wants to correct or, right, the ship.
by the time the election comes around the un-employment rate will be reduced to 3%.
politico's article will be repeated. over and over and over again.
by election time, the joos in israel will be begging hussein to come be their prime minister in a joint union of the governments.
don't roll your eyes at me.
and everyone will believe it.
no one cares.
i mean really, what does it matter?

Thanks for writing this blog article. After seeing the poll in Politico, I have to admit that I was confounded to explain how Obama's numbers could be rising in Israel. I was deeply suspicious, but nevertheless very confused at how this result could be obtained.

Politico is meshugah if they think Israeli Jews love Obama. You might find a few leftwingers in Tel Aviv,but that's about it. I bet the Arabs love him plenty though!
