What's that? Bad polls? Let BLANK-Man see that!

So now the conservatives have a new superhero: BLANK-Man! He has the power to get poll results he wants, no matter how contradictory the findings! SEE him take a 38% approval and show wide support! WATCH as he shows that people don't mean what they say on polls, they means what he THINKS them to mean! And THRILL as some conservatives rely on more and more desperate means to show the American people believe in them!

But seriously, as Brendan Nyhan points out, this type of reading is a joke. Blankley is attempting to a.)add up numbers until he gets what he wants and 2.)move the goalposts to match his argument. All I can see is "It depends on what the meaning of "is" is."
