Trump Slams Negative Polls As Fake News


Trump Slams Negative Polls As Fake News. by Tyler Durden. President Donald Trump started off his Monday
morning tweeting by blasting �negative polls� as �fake news,� saying the public wants
�border security and extreme vetting.� “Any negative polls are fake news, just like
the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme
vetting,” he tweeted. He then added that “everyone knows” that he
calls his own shots, “largely based on an accumulation of data.” “I call my own shots, largely based on an
accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKE NEWS media, in order to marginalize,
lies!” he tweeted. Trump was referring to two polls released
over the past three days, which found that a majority of Americans opposed his executive
order. On Friday, a CBS poll alleged that more than
half of Americans disapproved of President Trump�s executive order temporarily banning
visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries, sharply divided along party lines on the issue. Overall, 51% of Americans disapprove of Trump�s
immigration executive order and temporary refugee ban, and 45 percent approve, according
to the poll. This was followed by a second poll on Sunday,
this time from CNN/ORC, which likewise found that most Americans oppose the executive order
Trump signed, putting travel restrictions put in place. These, however, followed a prior poll from
Reuters which found the opposite, namely that a plurality of Americans, or 49%, “strongly”
or “somewhat” agreed with Trump’s order, while 41% disagreed. Similarly, a Rasmussen poll earlier in the
week likewise found in its own survey that a majority approved of Trump’s order. As we have shown in the past, numerous political
polls in the recent past have relied on “oversampling” of democratic responses to goalseek a specific
outcome, and is likely what Trump is referencing when he says that he “calls his own shots,
largely based on an accumulation of data.”
