So I'm thinking that Rasmussen must have surveyed some of Harry Reid's direct family, or his staffers, or perhaps they dialed the pressroom of the Washington Post. The news is all bad for Harry; and I guess he was right all along, The War Is Lost, only not the war he was talking about at the time. Gateway Pundit has the stats, and they ain't pretty:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is now viewed favorably by 19% of American voters and unfavorably by 45%.
Just 3% have a Very Favorable opinion of Reid while 22% hold a Very Unfavorable views.
His ratings are down from a month ago when 26% had a favorable opinion of the Democratic Senator. Reid’s highest ratings were 30% favorable in February.
...Vice President Dick Cheney’s numbers held steady—38% favorable and 58% unfavorable. Bummer... That means if you doubled Reid's marks they would just equal Cheney's approval rating.
And... The president's very favorable number is more than 5 times that of Harry Reid at 16% versus 4%. The president's approval rating is nearly double Reid's at 35%.
Powerline adds this: "Scott Rasmussen's latest survey has Harry Reid in a dead heat with Scooter Libby, each with a 19% approval rating. And Reid hasn't even been convicted of anything yet!"
And the chirping you hear is from the media, who remain silent about this stunning reversal as they sift through the stats, trying desperately, somehow, someway, to spin this against President Bush...
