There is a new ABC/Washington Post poll bleating about how Trump’s approval numbers are “plummeting.”
It’s FAKE NEWS.
- The poll sample was 35% Democrat vs. 23% Republican vs. 35% Independent.
- America is currently 30% Democrat vs. 26% Republican vs. 42% Independent.
The poll over-sampled Democrats by 5 points and under-sampled Republicans by 3 points. That’s an 8 point error spread right there. Add in the 7 point under-sampling of Independents and you’ve got a poll that was designed to create a FAKE NEWS headline.
Interesting factoid: Even with this left-skewed sample, Trump scored 43% approval on the economy!
