Trump ups pop­u­lar­ity to 75%

The Citizen (KZN) - - FRONT PAGE - Wash­ing­ton

– Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump says the polls have it all wrong, so on Thurs­day he cal­cu­lated his own pop­u­lar­ity rat­ing: 75%.

The Repub­li­can be­gan re­flect­ing on his ap­proval num­bers with an overnight tweet cel­e­brat­ing a new poll that gave him 50%.

The only prob­lem is that the poll­sters com­ing up with that num­ber, Ras­mussen, are se­ri­ous out­liers. All other polling com­pa­nies give Trump con­sid­er­ably lower rat­ings, with an av­er­age of just 43%, ac­cord­ing to Real­Clear­Pol­i­tics.com.– AFP
