So does that mean his approval rating dropped? (on the floor, since it was 'taken down').

That is fake news trying to capture all the first page hits for "trump 50% approval".

Trump did in verifiable fact hit 50% approval AND it was higher than Obama's at that point in the presidency.


50 PERCENT: Trump Outpaces Obama In Approval Ratings

Saagar Enjeti | White House Correspondent

President Donald Trump’s approval rating hit 50 percent in Rasmussen’s daily presidential tracking poll Monday, which puts him ahead of his predecessor at the same point in the presidency.

The last time Trump hit 50 percent in the Rasmussen tracking poll was February 27. At the time, he was generally within the 47-50 percent range. The President’s approval rating outpaces that of former President Barack Obama, who sat at 46 percent in Rasmussen’s tracking poll on April 2, 2010.

It's also CURRENTLY at 50%.

So you're a liar, your source is a liar, etc etc.

Rasmussen were the most accurate polls in the run up to the election.

Yes, exactly.

The other pollers get raw numbers much higher in support of Trump but they then do a "demographic adjustment" to the numbers to "correct" them. Before the election there were some articles analyzing this process. They have all sorts of explanations for why it's statistically valid but you look at it and they are just taking the raw poll numbers and saying "Hm, I would like these numbers better of Trump's support was lower" and then multiplying by a "correction factor" that they pull out of their ass.

So we saw poll after poll from Hillary shills like Gallup claiming she had 98% chance of winning all while we'd drive around in multiple cities and see NOTHING but Trump signs on EVERYONE's lawns, and then the rallies where Hillary would be shown in close up because the crowd was 3 dozen people, probably staffers, while Trump rallies showed a hundred thousand people or more showing up.
