Do not report that. It lacks context.

This year-end has featured some pretty funny New Year’s resolutions. First Debbie Wasserman Schultz resolved to convince Republicans to stop disagreeing with her, and now President Obama’s pollster is resolving to try and get reporters to avoid citing polling data leading up to the 2014 election:

After a year of seeing President Obama’s approval ratings plummet, the president’s pollster is offering a strikingly candid and pessimistic New Year’s resolution.

Reporters should go the next “year without reporting any public polling data,” Joel Benenson, president and CEO of Benenson Strategy Group, said.

His comments were made to reporter Mike Allen, who published them in his daily “Politico Playbook” morning newsletter on Tuesday.

Benenson explained that he thinks the polling often reported by news organizations lacks the proper context.

Asked his New Year’s resolution: “Here’s one — with a variation, if mine is too extreme: Go one year without reporting any public polling data.”

Funny how, when the Dems were polling higher, there didn’t seem to be a context problem with the reported data.

In related news, the DNC is challenging news outlets to refer to the ACA as “Republi-Care” in 2014.
