We hear that claim with metronomic regularity from the Left’s acolytes, most especially whenever Rasmussen posts an increase in Trump’s popularity. The glare is blinding when one compares Rasmussen with Pravda…..er, CNN. 1. “CNN claims 35 percent of American adults approve of how Trump is performing Rasmussen Reports found 49 percent of respondents approve of the president 2. What accounts for a roughly 15 percentage point disparity? CNN is skewing polling data to show the majority of Americans disapprove of the way President Donald Trump is handling the presidency. The network published a poll Sunday that claims 35 percent of American adults approve of how Trump is performing as president. Those results are in stark contrast to a Monday Rasmussen Reports poll that found 49 percent of respondents approved of how the president is managing the White House. 3. …a number of factors that could account for the 15 percentage point disparity between CNN’s and Rasmussen’s results. 4. Thirty-three percent of respondents identified as Democrats, 44 percent as Independent or members of another party and 23 percent as Republicans. 5. … the most recent Gallup polling on how Americans self-identify politically, CNN’s figures are off as much as 14 percentage points for Republican representation. Forty-four percent of U.S. adults self-identify as Democrat or independents who lean Democrat, according to a December 2017 Gallup poll. Roughly 37 percent of Gallup respondents self-identified as Republicans.” Why Is CNN’s Approval Rating For Trump 15 Points Lower Than Rasmussen’s? Of course, the real question is…..is this a mistake or an agenda?
