The pollsters are at it again, misrepresenting the opposition to US President Donald Trump, as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer addressed the subject Friday.
A CNN/ORC poll revealed Friday a 44% approval rating for President Trump, the lowest ever for a newly elected US President, and CBS came in even lower Friday at 40% approval.
Mr. Spicer shot back at Friday’s White House press briefing.
“… there is also a Rasmussen poll that showed he had a 51% approval rating,” Mr. Spicer said, actually underestimating Trump’s approval, which was 54% there Friday.
The variance in the numbers can be due to a number of factors.
The pollsters were borderline vitriolic against Donald Trump during the Presidential campaign, and the same ones are still at it.
People should be reminded how many pollsters got the Presidential election wrong, and in many cases not even close.
President Trump has continued to complain about polls being rigged against him, tweeting as such last month about “rigged” and “phony” polls.
The online surveys, people are more likely to put in an honest answer because they are not speaking to humans.
President Trump’s press secretary believes the approval ratings will turn up for Our President once his early hard work is put into action.
“I think that as the President’s policies continue to get enacted, for all the hysteria regarding his efforts to protect the country… The President understands this is a marathon, and not a sprint,” Mr. Spicer said. “And as he continues to get people back to work, protect this country, I think the poll numbers will act in accord.”
Have a terrific weekend.
