There are plenty of legitimate polls out there but instead the OP chose a biased poll from Axios, besides it’s not as if Trump understands polls. Why is a poll on these 4 important, just an attempt to rationalize Trumps comments.

The title of this thread is misleading, it should read 91% of white republican voters with less than 2 years of college across America.

this just came out 20 minutes ago -

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) had the highest approval among the four, with a net positive rating of +4 in The Economist/YouGov Poll.

She was one of only two Democrats included in the survey, along with Rep. Katie Porter (D-Calif.) with a positive approval rating.

Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) all had net negative approval rating of -7, -8 and -9, respectively.
however,

All four of the progressive lawmakers had higher net approval ratings than Congressional Democrats overall, who as a party had a -10 rating.

Obviously you didn't read the OP. Obviously you are simply making up BS. Here's what it did say.
  • These are the "white, non-college voters" who embraced Donald Trump in 2016 but are needed by Democrats in swing House districts.
  • The group that took the poll shared the results with Axios on the condition that it not be named, because the group has to work with all parts of the party.
This was an internal Democrat party poll.

No where does it claim that it was an internal democratic poll in fact no one knows the source or the specific questions. Somehow you came up with “across the nation” you should read the article you posted. Besides, is that biased and narrow demographic supposed to be somehow meaningful.

If you are trying to rationalize Trumps comments then try again.

Yeah, this woman is absolutely disgusting for attacking the Black Hawk Down Delta Force soldiers.

She claimed that "thousands of Somalis were killed on that day" That was not thousands.

Plus, The purpose of American involvement in Somalia was to protect the peacekeepers tasked with the near-impossible mission of delivering vital food and medical supplies to the starving, war-torn population. As the aid grew, so did the opportunities for graft from warring clans who saw the humanitarian crisis as a way to cement their power throughout the country.

I have a good friend who was in one of those African countries doing humanitarian works. He was a navy corpsman and the local ambushed them and killed many American Marines and soldiers. My friend has severe brain injury and he is now 100% disabled. This woman annoys me to no end.

This disgusting woman was not even there at the time. How the hell did she know what happened.

I don't care about the polls. common sense tells me that people who support her will always support her for whatever the reasons, and that is fine, this is a free country.

But there is a reason why even her own party leader is condemning her now.

I was proud the of the Seal, as he was very eloquent, and showed nothing but respect during his response to Omar. Considering she is a complete Loon with her sickening smile when she talks disrespectfully towards the people of this country I would not have been so respectful.

As far as her disrespect for the people of our military, she should take it up with Bill Clinton as he put our men in harms way in her country, and was ultimately responsible for the deaths of US soldiers and her fellow Somalian warlords.
