Obama pollster says news media should stop reporting public polls in 2014

After a year of seeing President Obama’s approval ratings plummet, the president’s pollster is offering a strikingly candid and pessimistic New Year’s resolution.

Reporters should go the next “year without reporting any public polling data,” Joel Benenson, president and CEO of Benenson Strategy Group, said.

His comments were made to reporter Mike Allen, who published them in his daily “Politico Playbook” morning newsletter on Tuesday.

If you want to know how people feel about Obama and his administration, just go look at any Yahoo article written about him, any one of the dozens of scandals, obamacare, gun control, etc...and you'll see by the comments and number of upvotes vs. downvotes where people stand.

Just like the propaganda article yesterday on Yahoo saying that Hillary and Obama were the most admired Americans. LOL. The comments were all bashing the propaganda piece by about 200-5.

Nobody believes the garbage anymore.

That's one solution for the president. Another

would be to act in ways such that the American people... approve.

To name just one thing he could do (in case he's short on ideas), going back to a campaign promise that got him a ton of "natural health/new age/orgo" votes, he might honor his promise to see genetically-engineered foods labelled. P.S. President Obama doesn't seem to care what the American people think of his betrayal there - reneging on the promise and then rubbing salt into the wound by appointing a former Monsanto lobbyist to head the FDA. But maybe he'll want to please the communist Chinese, who have started to send the tainted stuff BACK to the U.S.
