Rasmussen is the only poll on this list to find greater approval than disapproval of the President in almost 2.5 years. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/ep...179.html#polls

They are not always showing positive, but no one else on list is.


Most recent Rasmussen estimate of Presidential approval is 10-15 points more favorable than any other recent poll.


Scott Rasmussen reportedly quit his namesake company years ago over philosophic differences with board / owners.



Several poll analysts in recent years have called the current version of the company the most conservative biased major pollster.

Most of the other polls are very left wing.

I would average between those polls and Rasmussen

Trump was +1 on a USA Today poll in June, so it's not just Rasmussen. He's also been very close to even (within 2-4 points) on a number of other polls.

Rasmussen and one other poll lean right. Many of the rest lean left. If you want to know where he really is, look at the REALCLEAR aggregate and add 2-3 point. Right now, he is about 46%.

Before you doubt me, I remind everyone yet again that I am the guy who not only told you that Trump could win, but what states he would pick off to do it:

Are any of you Dems starting to get that Trump COULD win?

Thanks.

I missed that usatoday +1. Moved a little too fast scrolling I guess. Thanks for the correction, though the broad view is still pretty much the same.

I really think when you talk about these polls, you need to consider a couple of things: 1-most polls lean left: 2-it is very early to even be mentioning polls and three a lot of people do not answer polls based on what a president has achieved but on how we fell about him personally. That is a huge difference between what he has done and how much we may personally like the person.

Other than some of the state polling in 2016, where exactly do you get most of the polls lean left from?

come on you know the answer to that: the ones who are conducted by college and universities: any gallop has always been considered leaning left for starters. I could probably name a lot of others but what' the point?

I don't think most polls lean one way or the other. But most polls don't count, either, because they don't qualify their audience.

Rasmussen does qualify their audience. They talk to likely voters.
