CNBC/NBC News/Survey Monkey tout fake Trump poll

Time for another weekly NBC “proof” that the presidency of Donald Trump is failing, just like his personal approval rating. Rasmussen disagrees. So sad.

WASHINGTON, February 24, 2017 – More fake news this morning, as America’s fake news pollsters—you know, the ones who brought us Hillary Clinton’s landslide victory over Donald Trump last November—are at it again.

Here’s the tout, coming at you from those always-reliable folks at NBC News:

“A majority of Americans disapprove of the way President Donald Trump is handling his job after a month in office, according to results from the latest NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll, though divisions are wide along party, gender and racial lines.

“Trump enjoys solid support from members of his party, but few outside it.”


Hold that thought. Like most of last fall’s failed pollsters—essentially all of them—this tally once again relies on significant oversampling of Democrats, thus providing the same kind of skewed, unreliable results that left them with egg on their collective faces when the November presidential numbers rolled in, proving them to be way wrong.

As you can see by adding up the “approve” and “disapprove” totals on the NBC News/Survey Monkey poll illustrated below, the percentage of those who “strongly” or “somewhat” currently disapprove of President Trump total 54 percent, while those who “approve or “somewhat approve” of the president only total 43 percent.

However, the historically more accurate Rasmussen polling organization, which uses party percentages closer to current reality, also weighed in this morning with these Friday morning presidential approval numbers:

“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove.”

Weird, huh? So what can we conclude?

Despite America’s ongoing 21st Century hard times, the business of America is still business and prosperity for all, coastal intellectualloid dogma notwithstanding. American voters of BOTH parties elected bull-in-a-China-closet Donald Trump as America’s president in 2016 to drain the swamp and get real Americans back to work.

But it’s clear that America’s clueless and bitterly clinging Left Bankers and the media mavens who love them have missed that message. By continuing to skew the demographic sampling that betrayed them so badly during Election 2016, they continue to reject the New Reality and embrace the Seinfeld Syndrome:

No hugging. No learning.
