We’re all well-aware that Donald Trump will only boast about polls that favor him. Despite his constant ‘fake polls’ claims, Trump bragged about a survey from a conservative-leaning polling company that shows his approval rating at 46 percent.
One of the most accurate polls last time around. But #FakeNews likes to say we’re in the 30’s. They are wrong. Some people think numbers could be in the 50’s. Together, WE will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Now. let’s all take into consideration the fact that Rasmussen polls are far-right leaning as can be, have a C+ rating for accuracy and arguably, a motive for flattering the president because every other poll does not – the remaining polls actually give accurate results, but I digress.
Yes – the Rasmussen’s daily presidential tracking poll had Trump’s approval rating at 44 percent on Monday, but here is something to note: Fifty-four percent, according to the poll, do not approve of the job Trump is doing as president. Last time I checked, fifty-four disapproval makes up more than half of the votes.
Essentially, Trump is bragging about being underwater in the polls. Interesting.
More importantly, every other poll including Trump’s favorite network, Fox News, has his approval rating in the 30’s.
Gallup – 38, Reuters – 35, CNN – 38, IBD – 36, ABC – 38, CBS – 39, PPP – 38, Pew – 34, Fox News, 38, Marist – 38, Quinnipiac – 38, USA Today – 38.
On average, thirty-eight percent appears to be the accurate number.
Yet, Trump will not acknowledge the accurate numbers merely because the polls do not represent him in positive way (and it hurts his feelings).
