And he is also more trusted than the polls the press cites.
Just 26% of Likely U.S. Voters say they trust most political polls. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 55% do not trust most political polls. Nineteen percent (19%) are undecided.
Thirty-seven percent (37%) rate the current polling on political issues and events as worse than it has been in the past. Only 11% say polling is better now. Forty-six percent (46%) think it’s about the same.
Just one-out-of-three voters (35%) believe most pollsters are interested in reporting the attitudes of Americans in an unbiased manner when they poll on Trump. Forty-three percent (43%) think most pollsters are trying to block the president from passing his agenda. Just 12% say most are trying to help the president pass that agenda instead.
Not surprisingly, given how wrong most pollsters were about the outcome of the presidential election, 64% of Republicans think most pollsters are trying to block Trump’s agenda, a view shared by 42% of unaffiliated voters but only 24% of Democrats.No matter which way they slice it, the pollsters have lost the public's confidence.
If you believe the polls, then the polls show you do not trust the polls.
And if you don't believe the polls, you do not trust the polls.
Just as the media lost all its credibility in the last election, the pollsters lost theirs not only by being repeatedly wrong, but erring on the side of Hillary.
College polls blew it. Media polls blew it. And conservatives are no dummies. They know that colleges now are just as overwhelmingly Marxist as newspapers and other media outlets.
No longer is it a sneaky suspicion that those who weigh public opinion have their thumbs on the scale. The last election proved finally that this is a fact.
The odds of every one of them getting it wrong in the same way are outside their stated margins of error.
Until the polls again get things right, most voters will not trust them.
And trust is all the pollsters -- and the media -- have going for them.
On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"
