O'Reilly uses poll showing 57% approval for Obama attack response to claim Americans "not thrilled" with response

››› ››› BROOKE OBIE

Bill O'Reilly cited a CBS poll announcing a drop in Obama's approval ratings and commented, "Talking Points predicted that last week with Dick Morris -- I predicted that Americans were not thrilled with President Obama's rather unemotional response to the Christmas Day terror situation." But the CBS News poll O'Reilly cited found that Americans approve of the Obama administration's response to the attempted terrorist attack by a 57 percent to 29 percent margin.

O'Reilly: CBS poll bears out prediction "that Americans were not thrilled" with Obama terror response

From the January 12 edition of The O'Reilly Factor:

O'REILLY: President Obama's poll numbers continue to slip. New CBS poll, which is usually friendly to the president, has Mr. Obama's job approval rating at just 46 percent; 41 percent of Americans now disapprove. That is the president's worst showing in this poll. The Rasmussen daily tracking poll also has the president's approval rating at just 46 percent with a whopping 53 percent of registered voters -- likely to vote, I should say -- disapproving. Now, Talking Points predicted that last week with Dick Morris -- I said Americans were not thrilled with President Obama's rather unemotional response to the Christmas Day terror situation.

But CBS poll O'Reilly cited finds 57 percent approve of administration's response to terror attempt

CBS Poll: 57 percent of Americans approve of the way the Obama administration has responded to the attempted terrorist attack, only 29 percent disapprove. The CBS poll O'Reilly cited, conducted January 6-10 and released on January 11, found that "57% of Americans approve of the way the Obama administration has responded to the attempted terrorist attack, and 29% disapprove":
