Trump Brags On Twitter About How His "Approval Rating" Is At 46 Percent

Submitted by: fancylad 7 months ago in Funny News & Politics


The sad orange sack of shit is bragging about the Rasmussen Poll like anyone's ever heard it before. The reason why no one (other than conservatives) put stock into the Rasmussen Poll is because it's has proven to be the least accurate of the political polls with an average error of ~6% and Republican lean of ~4%. That, and it's heavily skewed to favor today's Republican politician.

Of course Trump would troll the internet to find a survey with numbers he likes. A more reliable indicator is likely the RealClearPolitics Average, which has him at 39 percent (actually up slightly from some craters in late summer and November). The Gallup Poll has him at 35 percent, which sounds about right.

Does it really matter when he just makes all this stuff up as it goes?  If the news is favorable to him, he claims some it is not covered enough.  If the news is unfavorable to him, he claims it is lies.  If he needs to make up some good news, he does that, then complains when it is questioned.

Or, according to his own numbers, 54% think he is an inarticulate tuber. Like a potato. With a pun. 
Well, according to his own numbering ability, 73%.

So the absolute best poll he could come up with, which is skewed in his favor, still has over half not wanting him there....and he's bragging about it....what a tool.

fancylad Same kind that brags Obama was the best when he finished out at 29%. And yes other polls, notable the left leaning ones, show 49%. Polls are data and you can massage it to say what you want. Also your polling sample says it all. Poll Democrats and Obama was Da Bomb. Poll Republicans and he was the shits.

scheckydamon where on earth do you get your information? What poll had him at 29% when he left office? RCP has 13 end of term polls taken. Every single one had him in the 50s and 60s. Fox news had him at 57%. Seriously. What the fuck?

scheckydamon This is hilarious. Your link shows Obama at 62% approval when he left office not 29% like you falsely claimed.

markust123 Pretty good right? Then when I point it out he argues and then ignores it completely. Now apparently "liberals" have done something. Typical moronic, ill-informed conservative.

holygod See my comment below and try to read English. If I screwed the pooch with my facts is one thing but to constantly tell me I’m wrong because I’m conservative, go fuck your self again. And as soon as you quote Real Clear Politics polls I know you off base. Just like the polls from them that had the shewitch in a landslide. I hope you personally benefit from the 4 or 8 years of Trumps presidency. The best revenge is one that comes out for the best for everyone.

"tell me I’m wrong because I’m conservative"

I don't have a problem with you being conservative. I have a problem with you being stupid and / or ignorant and then spreading that stupidity and / or ignorance online.

My dad is conservative. I respect him more than anyone else I've ever known. He also happens to be brilliant. Those two things don't have to be mutually exclusive, they just appear to be anytime I read conservative comments on here, go on Breitbart, or watch Fox News.

Also, don't you think I'm wrong because I'm a liberal? What's the difference? You mention below that I lay out some good posts that contradict reality. Like what? I can actually read information. You are just making that comment because my opinions are liberal.

"as soon as you quote Real Clear Politics polls I know you off base"

Do you even know what Real Clear Politics is? I'm going to assume you don't. It isn't actually a poll. It is just a site that collects all the polls. However, there you go again spreading your ignorance.

"Just like the polls from them that had the shewitch in a landslide"

The last RCP average had Clinton 46.8% and Trump 43.6%

That's a difference of 3.2%

The final vote was Clinton 48.2% and Trump 46.1%

That's a difference of 2.1%

So

1. They did NOT say she would win in a "landslide"

2. They were 1% off in their spread which is incredibly accurate.

3. You are again completely full of shit. You are on the internet. The wealth of human knowledge is at your finger tips. LOOK STUFF UP BEFORE YOU SAY IT. Stop spreading stupidity. It is a virus and people like you are the cause.

scheckydamon No, I'm not in any bubble.  I definitely have center left leanings. I know where my leanings are, I Don't listen to the "liberals" strictly.  I would hope my content which has been both sides would be obvious.  The difference between the bubble i'm in and you is I don't make up my own facts.

Show me a post where I completely contradict reality.

normalfreak2 Since we don't have a user comment history like DISCUS I can't but I'm sure you've laid out some good ones. Not as good a daegog or holygod but I'm sure they're out there. My response to you was to point out rudeness. I will man up to losing my shit from time to time but I usually blow up then settle down. I am not rude to people. I've been giving serious thought to leaving IAB behind. I've talked to OldOllie now and then and he's of the same mind. IAB has gone to hell these last 2 years with all together too much partisan bickering. Our tag line is " The best in arts & entertainment, news, pop culture, and your mom since 2002. We've turned into PolitcoBritbartInfowarsCNN.
It's not much fun here anymore.

scheckydamon "I will man up"

Bullshit. You were inarguably, objectively, verifiably wrong about Obama leaving office with a 29% approval, and you are just ignoring it like a little bitch. If you actually "manned up" you'd say "hey, I read the info wrong, my bad, you're right".

scheckydamon Just man up. Try it. 

You said "Same kind that brags Obama was the best when he finished out at 29%"

That was WRONG.

Then you posted Rasmussen poll which again showed not only were you wrong, but you are incapable of reading a simple table.

See this is the problem. You have lived the last year believing Obama left office with a 29% approval rating when in fact he had an approval rating in the 50s or 60s based on every poll. You believe that because you can't read simple data. Then you spread that information around. Someone else reads it and believes it without checking. That kind of viral ignorance is how we got Trump in the first place.

scheckydamon You just can't do it huh? You can't admit that you fucked up and you were wrong. Typical.

Yes Carson would have been an excellent president. He had so much relevant experience and wasn't at all a batshit crazy religious zealot that thinks god speaks to him personally.

I don't get mad persay at people.  I get mad at stupidity and blatant misinformation. IE 5cats and Oldollie.  He was a close second behind 5cats.  I mean this with all due respect, how the F you guys rationalize Trump and the Conservative agenda  boggles the mind.  Unless you guys are folks that make ~500k+ a year I don't know why you support that agenda.

Also don't confuse partisan bickering for calling out blatantly wrong information.  Like your statement that Obama was the lowest polled President ever at 29%.  you can't even back up that with any facts.  That's the type of stuff you CAN'T confuse as partisan bickering.  Calling a spade a spade is being honest, it's not being partisan.  The Breitbart/Info Wars/Red States/Huff Po are BUILT on discrediting reality, twisting the truth into some made up fiction.  Look at 5cats for crying out loud.

I don't want an echo chamber, but please correct me if I'm wrong, that's what you want.

scheckydamon so you send me a link you think backs you up, but it has his approval at 62%? Are you literally retarded? What are you missing here? I'll try to explain it to you. Is it that you don't know the difference between "approve" and " disapprove"?

So his are the same as Obama's at the same point in both presidencies. Where's you report about that? Shaping the news to fit your narrative, Fancy?

scheckydamon Go to the Gallup Presidential Job Approval Center > Click on Compare Presidents at the bottom > Pick a President (at the bottom) Donald Trump > Add a Comparison (at the bottom) Barack Obama > Click on 1 Year at the top of the chart > Find out you're off by 14 points (Obama 51%, Trump 37%). The false narrative seems to be your own.
