Reid: Poll finding 80 percent of Americans not better off ‘so meaningless’

"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, called a new CBS News and New York Times survey finding that 80 percent of Americans are not better off financially than they were four years ago “so meaningless.” Reid said he does not “believe in” the poll’s results.

The Daily Caller asked Reid for his assessment of the poll’s findings. (RELATED: More on Harry Reid)

“I’m not much of a pollster guy. As everyone knows, there isn’t a poll in America that had me having any chance of being re-elected, but I got re-elected,” he told TheDC.

“I think this poll is so meaningless. It is trying to give the American people an idea of what 300 million people feel by testing several hundred people. I think the poll is flawed in so many different ways including a way that questions were asked. I don’t believe in polls generally and specifically not in this one.”

The poll, conducted among 1009 adults nationwide between March 7-11 via telephone, found that “just 20 percent of Americans feel their family’s financial situation is better today than it was four years ago” while “another 37 percent say it is worse and 43 percent say it is about the same.”

According to the survey, President Obama’s approval rating has hit a new low of 41 percent."

    He's an uppity politician. What would he know about the American people and their struggles? He rides around in a chauffeur-driven limousine, doesn't worry about how he's going to pay his mortgage or other bills, and the only concerns he has about eating is where he's going to dine next.

    Of course he doesn't like polls nor does he want to explain how he wasn't ahead in a single poll leading up to the 2010 Senate race, yet went from Angle 49% - Reid 45% on 10-31-10 to supposedly winning the race with Angle 44.6% Reid 52% two days later.

    I love how Liberals deem a poll as "meaningless" when it doesn't lean in their favor, but the poll is an "absolute truth" if it does lean toward their vile agenda and therefore above reproach.

    It's all about Senator Reid and his corrupt Democrat pals, not what's good for the people.

    'Meaningless' to him and those he supports, just 'meaningful' to the other 80%. Which is a majority. Which is why this clown should be kicked out of Washington.
