    Daily Caller ^ | January 17, 2017 | By Christian Datoc
    Two polls released Tuesday — one from ABC and a second from CNN — tout Donald Trump as being the most unfavorable incoming president in modern history — yet on second look, the data is clearly boosted by the pollers’ decision to oversample Democrats. According to Gallup, 28 percent of Americans identify themselves as a Republican, while 25 percent identify as a Democrat. Despite this information, eight more percent of participants in both the ABC and CNN polls identified as Democrats, leading to an 11 point swing in partisanship breakdown off the national average. ABC’s poll sampled 1,005 adults across...

    President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday tweeted that approval rating polls are rigged against him, as a series of polls show him with historically low approval as he enters office. "The same people who did the phony election polls, and were so wrong, are now doing approval rating polls. They are rigged just like before," Trump wrote. [Snip] A CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday morning showed Trump with 40 percent approval - six points lower than it was after Election Day, and lower than the last three presidents. [Snip] An ABC News/Washington Post poll also released Tuesday found just 40 percent respondents...

    When President-elect Donald Trump takes the oath of office Friday, he'll be the most unpopular man to do so in decades, two new polls showed. A majority of Americans - 54% - have an unfavorable opinion of the incoming president, a Tuesday Washington Post/ABC News poll showed. A second survey, conducted by CNN and ORC, reported that 52% of people do not approve of the way the president-elect has been handling the transition. In each poll, just 40% of respondents said they view Trump and his transition team favorably.

    Most presidents — even those elected in polarized times or controversial circumstances — enjoy some sort of honeymoon period after they win an election. People tend to put their hopes and dreams into the idea of hope a new president represents, even if they did not vote for him. It's a reminder of our fundamental optimism as a people. Donald Trump, as we are reminded every day, is not “most presidents.” And, according to new numbers from Gallup, he never had anything close to a honeymoon period. Just 4 in 10 people polled by Gallup say they approve of the...

    As a developer and a reality TV star, Donald Trump seemed to believe there was no such thing as too much publicity. Already, as president elect, he’s finding that’s not so. Trump is still a week away from being sworn in as president, but judging by the latest polls, he’s already started to wear out his welcome... Only 44% of Americans approve of Trump’s transition so far, according to the latest Gallup figures, released Friday. A poll earlier in the week by Quinnipiac University pegged the number even lower — only 37% approved of Trump in that survey. In either...

    In a year when there were hundreds seismic shifts amid the tectonic plates within the body politic, one of the most important was the revelation that Media Polling is just as brutally biased as the media entities who present the polling results. With election 2016 behind us, and before 2017 arrives, the truth behind the intentionally constructed deception must not simply fade back into the shadows. Never again should the American voter trust the polling presented by corporate media. Everything about it is a financed and manufactured fraud.

"No one on the Internet asked or looked at what people answer. No one monitored how many people like Trump’s messages on Twitter.

    Pollsters from coast to coast were dead wrong about how the presidential election was going to shake out – with the exception of very few. Most polls showed Hillary Clinton up bigly over Donald Trump, which was pretty much the left’s way of discouraging Republicans from showing up. Almost a suppression of the vote, if you will. Didn’t work out so well. Who knew the polls were a complete joke from the start? That would be 2008 VP candidate and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

Well, if a pollster asks a voter, "Do you approve of the job president's doing or not?" it makes perfect sense to me that voters would not want to encounter a pollster mad at them for disapproving Obama 'cause the pollster might say it's racist or whatever. The easiest thing to do is say, yeah.
