Obama's Metrics

There is a lot to be said for the likes of the Rasmussen and Zogby polls about the president and his policies. However, both the Left and the Right tend to ignore certain polls as being either too liberal-minded, or too conservative-minded in their samplings. That said, the big breakthrough for conservatives of late has been that that ever-so-pesky Zogby poll is starting to show disapproval for Obama as well. But what happens when we go even further? Many during the election viewed Facebook as a major influence politically, so much so that debate questions were taken live online from Facebook chat sessions. So what does the Facebook community have to say about the agenda our president has been pushing of late?

Are you in favor of a government run healthcare system?

Yes: 112,367 (22%)
No: 381,234 (74.5%)
Maybe: 18,016 (3.5%)

Should the U.S. adopt a Universal Health Care System?

Yes: 141,143 (69.7%)
No: 60,218 (29.7%)
I Really Don't Care: 1,178 (0.6%)

Would you support a nationwide handgun ban?

Yes: 38,242 (8.0%)
No: 434,705 (91.1%)
Not Sure: 4,379 (0.9%)

Do you approve or disapprove of Obama's job in office?

Strongly Approve: 35,583 (17.1%)
Approve: 20,882 (10.0%)
Neutral: 5,992 (2.9%)
Disapprove: 22,645 (10.9%)
Strongly Disapprove: 123,498 (59.2%)

Pretty interesting results, with some huge samplings at that, from a realm that most consider to be vastly liberal.
