Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Former Clinton Strategist Cautions Polls are Underestimating Trump Once Again…

Pollsters don’t seem to have learned anything from the election and a former Clinton strategist believe they are making a bad mistake again with President Trump.

Many pollsters say that President Trump is the least popular president in U.S. history.

But Mark Penn, a former pollster for Bill and Hillary Clinton and now chairman of the Harris Poll, believes polling data is skewed against the president ,showing him with low approval ratings as he discussed in an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday.

Penn cautioned a careful reading of polls, explaining that the numbers don’t add up when looking at the type of people being polled. The “likely voters” polled during the election season gave way to “U.S. adults,” Penn elaborated, a category which can include anyone who is or is not a citizen, and may or may not even be registered to vote.

With polls showing approximately 95 percent of Trump’s supporters still backing him, the president’s approval rating should be close to the 46 percent of the popular vote he received in the election, not the low 40’s that is being reported, Penn explained.

With another 10 percent of the people who didn’t vote for Trump now approving, Penn said that should account for a few more percentage points.

He added that polls should present questions covering both sides of an issue and they generally haven’t even asked about Trump’s issues like tax relief, jobs, sanctuary cities or the border all.

Penn concluded that he’d put Trump’s approval rating at 48 percent.

“I think that’s a realistic assessment of where the electorate is,” Penn said. “It’s not as bad as people think. Nobody, him or the Democrats, has crossed 50 percent yet. That’s what they should be fighting for.”

Penn told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that there is a “polling bubble” to be aware of.

“Well, we have to be wary of a kind of polling bubble,” Penn said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday.

“I mean, the polls have switched, many of them from voters to in fact to U.S. adults. And they don’t screen for either citizenship or likelihood to vote anymore. So, that’s a whole different group. And we haven’t come together after this election the way we normally come together after elections. And so, these polls really don’t reflect the electorate,” Penn said.

“And realistically, we are right back where we were on Election Day, and we are not set back the way most of these polls show,” he added.
