God’s Approval Rating?

Believe it or not, Public Policy Polling conducted a survey where they asked people “If God exists, do you approve or disapprove of its performance?”

You’ll be relieved to hear that 52% approve of the job that God is doing. Only 9% disapproved. The rest were not sure or didn’t answer.

If that seems like a low approval rating for God, the same survey showed just 33% approval rating for our Congress-critters. The worst rating in the poll was for Rupert Murdoch; only 12% approve of him. This poll didn’t rate Obama, but similar polls pegged him at 46%, only 6 points off the almighty.

    I agree with Ben Smith from Politico about this: this polls shows that polls are a joke.

    It’s kind of funny that when God gets polled, he/she/it/-/ always agrees with the pollster.

    Of course with such a small sample, Yahweh’s opinion has an uncertainty of plus or minus 100%.
