The Rasmussen Minute: Phony Polls

President Trump raged against the system–aka the swamp–and anyone or anything that stood in his path to the White House in 2016. One of the biggest obstacles Trump overcame during that election was the constant drumbeat of a large majority of major media polls that showed him losing the race from wire to wire.

Now, the same pollsters and pundits who predicted Trump could never win the White House are reporting that his approval rating, so far, is the lowest of any Commander-in-Chief in modern times.

Trump has slammed many of these surveys as being heavily weighted with Democrats and designed to suppress his support. He calls them “Phony Polls,” and they're the subject of this week's Rasmussen Minute.
