The Daily GOP Ignominious: Your President

Within the hour Trump tweeted this while brandishing the November Jobs Report.   

Typical Trump mind-shaping.

Seth Abramson posted a more accurate pool result via the CBS Poll.

Pew Research (December 7, 2017)
The new national survey by Pew Research Center conducted Nov. 29-Dec. 4 among 1,503 adults, finds that President Trump’s job approval rating has declined over the course of his first year in office. 
Currently, 32% of the public approves of the way Trump is handling his job as president, while 63% disapprove.

Trump and his team apparently grabbed a poll which historically shows favorable approval ratings for Trump which far surpass polls other than Rasmussen.

Morning Consult/Politico (December 6, 2017)
The poll also shows a small uptick in Trump’s approval rating as president — to 45 percent, up from 43 percent last week. A slight majority, 51 percent, disapprove of the job Trump is doing as president.
A quick review of the Politico Poll Demographics yields a telling statistic.

While the Politico Poll appears fairly balanced relative to party affiliation, the poll respondent pool is a bit of a problem. Let's suffice it to say, there is no surprise Trump would poll at 45 percent of the respondents.

It is important during the error of Trump to always review poll methodology and demographics.
