I was watching a repeat of an earlier Anderson or Lemon program on CNN Mon. night. (Keepin’ up with the enemy)
One guy on the panel was adamant that the Gallup poll figures showed Trump was going down the tubes (my words).
Three other panelists kept yelling at him that anything from Gallup was bogus and not to be believed.
Shocked me, because I was under the impression that CNN and other lame MSM always chose to push the bogus polls.
This is a test of wills; whether their constant negative attacks can roll over the popular support Trump has OR whether the American people can force the msm into a more neutral/nonaggressive posture.
Time will tell, but we can expect negative polls to be a lead feature for the foreseeable future.
“...51 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump, a Gallup poll found.”
51%? What a convenient number.
Mr. President. . . .Keep on winning!
Unmitigated BULLSHIIT !!
They have no power right now.
We control the white house, congress, the senate.
All they can do is shriek and make noise.
It's the sample. Ras uses likely voters and Gallup uses "Americans".
Who did they poll? College professors?
And Gallup is not showing their internals..no breakdown of what Americans they polled. How many Rep, Dem, and Ind - registered voters vs likely voters.
You can poll 1500 “Americans” in the same demo to get the result you like.
These assholes just poll each other. (You may reference that in whatever manner you like)
Maybe they should try polling the American people.
What utter bull.
I think you need to subscribe to their Gallup Analytics service to get those.
They do let you download a PDF here that describes their methodology. According to them, while they do collect Party ID they don't weight their polls based on that so on any given day it could be skewed one way or another.
That’s why I wondered if it’s not already being done, that they do their own polling so they know what the real deal is. Not to make poll-driven policy decisions, but just to have that data on hand for their own knowledge.
Indeed and that’s why I admire/d and was enthused about Trump, I wouldn’t have bothered supporting any other GOP candidate, Hillary be damned..just meant that it may be a good idea to have reliable, accurate data for their own knowledge (not to make poll-driven decisions).
