Trump Announces CPAC Poll Results: They Like Me, They Really, Really Like Me!

Donald Trump hates negative poll numbers so instead, he cherry picks polls, such as Rasmussen. He’s even gone as far as to say that any negative polls about his so-called presidency are ‘fake news.’ This time, though, he’s bragging about the straw poll taken at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). The straw poll indicates that Trump supporters are Trump supporters and nothing more. Trump went all Republican-caps to tout the poll.

“BIG CPAC STRAW POLL RESULTS: 93% APPROVE OF THE JOB PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING (Thank you!),” he tweeted. “50% say President Trump should Tweet MORE or SAME (funny!). 79% say Republicans in Congress should do a better job of working with President Trump (starting to happen).”

The backlash on Twitter was fierce.

Despite Trump bragging about the CPAC straw poll numbers, half of the attendees disapproved of the former reality show star’s  Twitter habits. 40 percent said that he should tweet less, while 35 percent said that Trump should tweet more. Apparently, Trump thinks the CPAC poll reveals that  Americans think he’s doing a great job, but the respondents are his supporters.

Trump’s approval rating has dipped back below 40%, a new poll released on Wednesday found. Trump’s approval rating now stands at 37%, slightly down from 40% approval earlier this month.

But, Trump just got confirmation that his own supporters actually support him. That’s some breaking news right there.
