An independent poll in Israel showed that Obama has a popularity level somewhere around 4% in Israel.

I discussed J-Street polls in the past which are producing results that simply don't match what anyone else is polling, but more interesting do match the official J-Street position and helps promote their agenda.

What's the point of such polls you might ask? Who foolish enough to believe them?

Apparently the Obama administration does!

CHARLIE ROSE: In terms of taking positions.

Why is President Obama’s popularity so low in Israel? It’s four percent.

GEORGE MITCHELL: No, that’s completely false.

CHARLIE ROSE: Have you heard that before?

GEORGE MITCHELL: I’ve heard the figure, and you’re citing a commonly cited public figure.

CHARLIE ROSE: Exactly. So tell me why that’s wrong.

GEORGE MITCHELL: Because it’s simply not true. Several polls that I’ve seen in the past month show that he is -- I’ll give you the numbers -- 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable, 43 percent favorable, 37 percent unfavorable. It’s a reasonable number. A plurality support him in Israel and a smaller plurality oppose him.

Since it's only the J-Street (and J-Street board member) polls that supply numbers like that, it's clear who has the ear of the President, and who is conveniently feeding him biased research.

And who wants to believe it.
