Not at all.  This thread is to discuss the approval rating of President Trump.  If I provided information from a mainstream poll that shows how different the mindset is in here versus the real world and I made you sad and defensive, that was not my intention.  

It’s refreshing for those supporting our President to see the PSF is an outlier.  Trump supporters like to hear they are in the majority and the views expressed on this board are fringe views.  Don’t be cyber bullied stay strong and firm in your convictions.   
Well the thread was about the approval rating last week of posters here.  But you aren’t in the majority.  

 
How many vote, less then 90 percent I would wager 
Well of the ones that did vote in the last election 90% voted Democrat which is what we were discussing. But to answer your question African American turnout has been roughly the same as white turnout since 2000.

 
This is a great post.  Sadly it did not stop the deluge of trolling.
Sorry, but giving you information that you don’t want to hear isn’t trolling.  
You posted an out-of-date poll and then followed up with a quote that you knew was false, then justified your behavior by complaining about the Russia thread.

I'm not calling you a troll, but you're doing what a troll would do.

Out of date by 2 days?  Regardless, Trump was still over 50%.  I don’t know the quote is false. Are they referring to polling during the 2016 cycle and not just the last day information?  

Did you demand some apology for posting the Rasmussen poll you consider false?  Likewise, I should expect all those that pushed the false narrative and lies that our President colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election to apologize.

You know I wasn't really a big Russian interference guy. I'm a follow the money and find the laundering guy. He has already paid fines for money laundering through his  casino. And he is perched in the perfect place to be the conduit. And he is surrounded by people with experience. That would be real estate. Interestingly since his inaugural he has been selling a lot of real estate to hidden buyers often paying millions in cash. Of course that's always been a thing for Trump properties just picked up recently. But his resort in Canada is going to have to list the real names with that province making it illegal to buy property using a shell Corp and hiding the true owners identity.  IIRC over 70% of the sales the Trump property made there in the last 2 years are to anonymous buyers. It could be a big problem. 

But back to cleared I think you should be very careful here. Bill Barr told you what the admin wanted you to hear. My guess is the report outlines all the instances of contact and it won't be a good look. Also Bill Barr is overstepping his authority. As the Special Counsel law is written Congress holds the final say on the Special Counsel and what he found. This idea Barr is going to redact it first? That isnt going to fly. They will get it and any cover up by Barr to protect Trump will dog the admin for the rest of the cycle. And if the thing really cleared him they'd be mailing it to every American free of charge and unredacted. Not trying to summarize 300 pages in 4 pages.

 
Trump shares fake poll numbers hyped by Lou Dobbs — the actual poll shows he has 42 percent approval.

President Donald Trump on Thursday shared phony polling numbers hyped by Fox Business’s Lou Dobbs — but the actual poll they’re based on shows his numbers are much lower.

Dobbs this week cited a poll from Georgetown politics that he said showed Trump had a 55 percent approval rating.

However, it appears Dobbs has gotten his poll numbers totally mixed up, as the actual poll shows 55 percent of voters view Trump unfavorably, while just 40 percent have a favorable view. When it comes to job approval, 42 percent of voters approve of the job Trump is doing, while 52 percent disapprove.

What’s more, 48 percent of voters in the survey said they had a “strongly” unfavorable opinion of Trump, while just 27 percent said they had a “strongly” favorable opinion of him.

& this graphic is incorrect. The Battleground Poll shows 58% approval on the economy. But it shows only 43% overall approval, & 52% disapproval. The 55% number is the President’s unfavorable rating. (Only 40% favorable.)

Blah Blah Blah 

55% APPROVAL RATING.   :thumbup: :tebow: :headbang:

Yada Yada Yada

 
Trump is gaining support.   
53% approval in the real world says it all. 
Hey buddy, just thought you might like to know that the latest poll shows that Trump's approval index has dropped 5 points since Tuesday, and his approval rating is only 49%.

Trump is losing support.
Hey GB, just wanted to let you know that the latest poll shows that Trump's approval index has dropped 9 points in the last 2 weeks.

47% approval in the real world says it all.

:shrug:

Seems to be still in margin for error. 
1. it's margin of error, not margin for error.

2. Rasmussen's margin of error is 2.5%. So even if we were to hypothetically adjust Trump's approval rating, it would still mean that the majority of the country does not support him, and his approval index would be at -2.

Deflection and goalpost moving says it all.

You're assuming the error, if it exists, is not in Trump's favor. For Rasmussen's poll, it is equally likely that he is at 45% instead of 49.5%. But, yes, still below 50 in a poll that consistently reports higher approval than other credible polls.

Side note: I don't mind that Rasmussen's poll is probably off a few points. The fact that it is consistent makes it useful for evaluating trends, even if their bottom-line number isn't something I'd want to quote on a message board.
