WH: Not Focused on 'Silly' Polls Showing Low Approval Ratings

Of course they aren't "focused" on silly polls Grin

Boy, Trump sure was focused on the election polls that had him ahead. Huh Roll Eyes

Quote:

President Donald Trump and his administration weren't focused on "silly" polls that showed the president with low approval ratings, but were engaged instead on "actual problems that Americans are facing," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday.

"The numbers, frankly, what we are focused on and that this administration cares about are not poll numbers," Sanders said, The Washington Times reported.

"The numbers we're focused on have to do with actual problems that Americans are facing. The numbers that we're focused on are the ones that actually impact day-to-day lives for all Americans. That's what we're focused on, certainly not silly polls that frankly weren't much use to us during the election, and certainly I don't think are now," Sanders added.

I hate polls, nothing can be more boring then polls.  But since you brought it up the polls also stated he would not win the election against Hillary.  So much for polls.

Wrong. You weren't following close enough

The polls tightened and had Trump ahead in the end in important states. Florida and Penn were some

I can find them if you would like?

Not till just before the election.  Understand some here knew the polls were flawed just by looking at the rallies.

How the polls, including ours, missed Trump's victory

Sad how little we tend to remember just a few months ago.  The CNN Article had Hillary winning on the 8th of Nov.  So again, polls suck.

Polls aren't electoral. The polls were correct during the election (Except saying she would win), however dumb not take electoral into consideration. Many of us didn't.
Maybe Im wrong and they do?

CNN had Hillary winning the day before.  In fact, I just posted links about How did we miss Trump winning story.

page not found. You must of hacked the article CNN tried to block.  Grin

I understand their prediction was "Win". But did the polls say she was ahead in a electoral setting or just popular vote?

Understand I do agree polls are junk. I wasn't asked to get involved in a poll. Millions of other weren't either.

Let me ask you, were not many of the MSM predicting her victory just the day before?  This is not ancient history.  I remember a ton of stations predicting her the victor before the votes had even started.
