The mainstream media is still using the same old dirty tricks that gave them a favorability rating below that of congress.
Just one day after the bitter, fake news generating, mainstreamers at ABC/WaPo and CNN used their “oversamples” of Democrats to rig polls showing an unprecedented unfavorable rating of the incoming President-elect (see “New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive ‘Oversamples'”), those same outlets have used those same methodologies to engineer super stellar approval ratings for Obama…shocking.
Just like yesterday’s polls, both ABC / Wapo and CNN used an aggressive, 8-point “oversample” of Democrats to lavish praise on their chose party and candidate.
Apparently, ABC / WaPo believes that only 23% of registered voters are Republican.
While CNN stretched the population all the way to 24% Republicans, they still maintained their 8-point Democrat oversample by just adding more dems to the pool.
And, of course, when you load up a poll with an “oversampling” of Democrats, you predictably get high approval ratings for Democratic candidates…surprise, surprise. Here are the ABC / WaPo results…
In any event, this tweet still sums up the continued mainstream media polling farce the best:
The same people who did the phony election polls, and were so wrong, are now doing approval rating polls. They are rigged just like before.
