President Liar Pants Just Made Up His Own Approval Rating To Prove He’s Popular

Donald Trump has never gotten over the fact that he lost the popular vote. In fact, the former reality show star is the most unpopular president in this history of polling. In January, Trump bragged about a poll that actually credited former President Barack Obama for the strong economy. On Tuesday, the deeply insecure so-called president took to his Twitter account to boast about his approval rating with the conservative-leaning pollster Rasmussen.  The only problem is that his approval rating with Rasmussen isn’t at 51 percent as he claims. The pollster has the fake news president at 49 percent.

“Rasmussen just came out at 51% Approval despite the Fake News Media,” the Dotard tweeted. “They were one of the three most accurate on Election Day. Just about the most inaccurate were CNN and ABC News/Washington Post, and they haven’t changed (get new pollsters). Much of the media is a Scam!”

Twitter users pounced.

49% of Likely U.S. Voters in Rasmussen’s daily tracking report approve of Trump’s job performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove. Furthermore, the right-leaning pollster says that “the latest figures include 33% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 41% who Strongly Disapprove,” giving him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8.

RealClearPolitics has Trump at a 42 percent approval rating with 54.4 percent disapproving of his job performance. Rasmussen Reports routinely pegs Trump’s approval ratings higher than other pollsters. Facts still matter, even in the age of Trump.
