You're reading into it too much. It's not about firing him. I think most of us understand that you can disapprove without wanting a guy fired. I happen to approve of his overall performance but find fault in some aspects of his leadership. The poll is simple--just a simple approve or disapprove for quantitative tracking throughout the season. Nothing more.


It's just pain.
