Statistics can be so dull

22 Jul

This pitiful graph from Gallup just needed a little jazzing up so I fixed it for them…

I would have used Nancy Pelosi but that would require an image of her in a bathing suit.  I’m cruel, but I’m not totally heartless. 

When asked about the miserable ratings of Congress, her majesty uttered something unintelligible about eating cake.  

The Gallup numbers are very encouraging when asked ‘How much confidence do you have in the following:’

Obama has gone from 51% to 36% in a little over a year.  That’s a minus FIFTEEN, your excellency! 

Or to put it another way…


That bears repeating, so I will.


Sorry, but I just can’t help myself.  Did I mention that Obama’s confidence numbers have gone down this much in a year?


There is disgruntlement in general across many institutions, but amazingly, there were some sectors that did actually GAIN in confidence over the year:

Medical System +4

Big Business +3

The Military is Still Numero Uno in inspiring confidence.

    Looks like Harry’s barrel is full of cement. Which, come to think of it, strikes me as a good idea.
