Despite Conservative Predictions, Obama's Poll Number Jump Up

Earlier this week, AltTulsa poked fun of the ravings of a certain conservative commentator (Joan Swirksy) for her boneheaded comments (published locally on the Tulsa Today blog) about the president's stimulus plan and his supposed plummeting poll numbers.

We questioned those numbers, for which we found no evidence. Now we have additional support for our position, courtesy of the Gallup Organization:
PRINCETON, N.J. -- In the days immediately after Barack Obama's nationally televised address to Congress on Tuesday night, his public support has increased significantly to 67% in Feb. 24-26 Gallup Daily polling, and is now just two points below his term high. This comes on the heels of a term-low 59% reported by Gallup on Tuesday.
So much for Swirky's reverence for facts. But, hey, when you're a right-wing nutjob, it's so much easier to ignore the truth and make things up.

From New Scientist: Porn in the USA: Conservatives are biggest consumers

Eight of the top 10 pornography consuming states gave their electoral votes to John McCain in last year's presidential election – Florida and Hawaii were the exceptions. While six out of the lowest 10 favoured Barack Obama.

Those states that do consume the most porn tend to be more conservative and religious than states with lower levels of consumption, the study finds.

(Oklahoma is 5th on the list of per thousand home broadband users.)

"Some of the people who are most outraged turn out to be consumers of the very things they claimed to be outraged by," Benjamin Edelman at Harvard Business School says.
