0In today’s CBS News poll:

Compared to four years ago, is your family’s financial situation better today, worse today, or about the same?

The survey finds 20 percent say better today, 37 percent say worse today, and 43 percent say “about the same.”

Ill be honest, Obama is doing a better job than I thought!

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.

Still not as Low an approval rating as the guy you voted for twice reached. I think ol GW hit 32% at one time.

Some of those people who say its worse just purchased two Cadillac SUVs. I guess they wanted 4.for the record.

63% are doing better yet half the country disapproves of the job he is doing. I dont get it.

BY the way I did not say, nor did the poll, that 63% are doing better. It said better off or the same.

Maybe those who are doing the same or worse just are too lazy to help themselves.

Isn't that the "conservative" talking point?
