Kudos To CNN On Obama Poll Numbers; Comparison Shows They Are Just About Meaningless — AP Gushes!!

CNN gets high marks today for reporting on President Barack Obama’s early poll numbers which are just about meaningless.

Ask economic advisor Larry Summers who fell asleep during President Obama’s White House lecture today. 
Obama The Captivating Public Speaker Puts Top Economic Advisor To Sleep: Again

CNN said, “In a CNN Poll of Polls compiled Thursday, 64 percent of those questioned in various surveys say they approve of how Obama is handling his duties as president. Twenty-eight percent disapprove.”

But CNN also added this:

George W. Bush stood at 62 percent in a CNN/USA Today Gallup poll in April 2001, Bill Clinton was at 55 percent in a CNN/USA Today Gallup poll in April 1993, George H.W. Bush stood at 58 percent in a Gallup poll from April 1989, and Ronald Reagan was at 67 percent in a Gallup poll taken in April 1981.

The Associated Press, however, again showed that, like NBC, it will swoon over Obama at any opportunity.

Ron Fournier and Trevor Thompson , of  the Associated Press, gushed, as usual, ” Nobody knows how long the honeymoon will last, but Obama has clearly transformed the yes-we-can spirit of his candidacy into a tool of governance. His ability to inspire confidence has thus far buffered the president against the harsh political realities of two wars, a global economic meltdown and countless domestic challenges.”

There’s a lot more gushing too:
