POLL: TRUMP JUMPS TO 46% APPROVAL

Interesting.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-three percent (53%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 30% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 44% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -14. (see trends)

Expect this thread to dwindle and die as the Libs leave it alone to twist in the wind.  It doesn't fit with their "everyone hates Trump" narrative!

The thing everyone wants to always overlook is ... Rasmussen polls "likely" voters.  Most of the polls showing lower approval ratings poll "registered" voters or like CNNs online polls ... anybody with a pulse that wants to jump in and click a button.

The most accurate polling is polling done of "likely" voters.

The polling done of "likely" voters has consistently returned higher approval results for Trump than the other flawed methodologies.  The ones showing the lowest approval ratings are random anonymous online polls that leftists then trumpet as if they were Ron Paul supporters circa 2008 proving how he killed it in the debates.

Currently in the Real Clear Politics approval averages, only the Rasmussen polls are of "likely voters."  The rest are "Americans" and "registered voters." 

My point in all that is to say the approval ratings CNN and other left biased media outlets use is wishful thinking.  Trump is far more popular than these outlets would have us believe.  But then they do have a vested interest (profit margins) in feeding those delusions.

Yes it is..  When Trumpaloons proudly post the findings of a far-right polling service showing Trump's abysmal 53% DISAPPROVAL ratings, I'd say that desperation is peaking.

I could care less one way or another, it changes nothing about who is the President.

The poll might as well be one that measures the bitter divide between the warring factions of the politically aware likely voters.  46%; but is that number rising or falling, as the majority of Americans learn that what they have been told was true...actually ain't!

Take a look at these numbers:

Compare Trump's to the Kenyan's.  Just scanning, I see a lot more negatives on Der Fuhrer's.

No, you COULDN'T care less.  If you could care less one way or the other, it means you DO care one way or the other. 

But of course you DO care.  You started the thread.

Going with Rasmussen is cherry-picking.  I respect their methodology -- their stats are internally consistent and reputable -- but their bias is similarly consistent.

I like RCP because it averages them all, which flattens out noise.  Also, I look more at movement than actual numbers.

RCP has Trump approval at 38 something.  He's had some ups and downs, but he's been mostly at or below 40 since May.  There hasn't been any significant bump for him, lately.  This seems to reflect that his core supporters (38% or so) are solidly reliable, but that he has drained the more tepid support of the independents.

After we've all seen the results of his governing style for most of a year, I don't think this comes as any kind of surprise or statistical deviation.

Even with the alleged "bias" of Rasmussen, a quick glance at comparative numbers appears to show Obama did better under their methodology than Trump has of late.
