A great article on polling from the Onion:

“This is a potentially devastating public commentary on the perceived public opinion that Bush will use to guide his re-election campaign,” Mallock said. “In fact, some see this as the most dramatic midterm shift in the public’s perception of popular opinion of the presidency since Carter was in office. The Carter Administration was, as you may recall, believed to be very poorly regarded.”

…”We often see a desire to acquiesce among survey participants,” polling-analysis analyst Tamara Bello-Dockett said. “There’s a pendulum effect to the feedback loop generated by the see-saw aspect of how people form their opinions about their perceptions of others’ beliefs. This does make it somewhat difficult for us to know exactly what the American people are actually saying about how the public is feeling about popular thinking, if you see what I mean.”
