Now they're rigging the approval ratings polls!

The Washington Post, ABC and CNN were totally embarrassed by the inaccuracies (intentional?) in their polling leading up to the election. All of them had Hillary Clinton winning by as much as 12%, which turned out to be completely fabricated.

It seems they've gone right back to their old tricks.

All three are intentionally sampling a larger group of people who identify as democrats than people who identify as republicans when conducting polling of Trump's approval ratings (he hasn't even gotten into office yet). This is obviously going to produce poor approval ratings. In order to get the most accurate rating, polling companies ensure that the people they poll are as close to 50-50 as possible.

More accurately, I should say 33-33-33, since "independents" are involved.

But the three fake news outlets in this post are intentionally sampling more democrats so they can produce a poll showing a lack of support for Trump.

The fight is not over. It is never over.
