At one time, Trump insisted that polls were “fake news,” but only the negative ones. Apparently, he hasn’t read them lately or he just makes up the numbers in his own head, because he went on a Twitter spree of lying about his approval ratings on Sunday.
Trump’s numbers are in no way 50 percent in any poll or by any metric. It’s true that he polls well with Republicans, but not even with GOP voters is he at 93 percent, not even with Rasmussen, which usually skews his way.
With women, Trump has a 37 percent approval rating. No women are going back to the Republican Party “in droves.” This is, again, just a made up number. The gender gap between women and men who approve of Trump is unprecedented. Trump’s recent defunding of Planned Parenthood may make that gap even larger.
Trump’s supporters, of course, will believe his tweets. The rest of us know how to research and read, and we’re not buying his snake oil salesmen pitches. The approval rating Trump is bragging about is about as truthful as his promises in 2016: there’s no healthcare that covers everyone, Mexico isn’t paying for that wall, Hillary Clinton is not in prison and never will be, and he didn’t repeal the ACA “on day one.” Anyone who still takes Trump at his word has not been paying attention.
Twitter is over Trump’s lies. Read some of their comments below:
