NOW THAT OBAMA’S TANKING IN THE POLLS, WE GET THIS: Obama pollster: Reporters should stop covering 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. . . . If reporters actually did forgo reporting on the president’s polling data for a year, the next time the public would hear about Obama’s approval numbers would be after the 2014 midterms.

Just to be safe, they should also skip any reporting on the economy, unemployment, ObamaCare, and foreign relations, too.
