Can't help but notice that

Can't help but notice that Canadas Trudeau states that they will continue to accept anyone who wanders into the country. Even though the murders continue there.

Also can't help but notice that shooting people in a place of worship seems to be popular in Muslim countries whereas it is considered Holy Ground in Christian countries. At least for some people.

You acknowledge that the polls are biased but still believe them if they parrot your bias. it just proves how good propaganda is as opposed to reality.

If a poll is consistently

If a poll is consistently biased the same way, you can still glean information from the trend over time, which is, in this case, down.

You're assuming that the poll is consistently biased. What evidence is your assumption based on? Given the state of the media, mere ineptitude is as likely as bias.

@mainelion: What reason would

@mainelion: What reason would they have to change the poll over time? It's more work and reduces what little credibility they have.

And there's a limit to the amount of bias you can apply. You can change the way the questions are worded but at some point, it will stop affecting how people respond.

Trump is going shock and awe. He's spending a little political capital now for a big benefit.

"Trump is going shock and awe. He's spending a little political capital now for a big benefit."

If you're gonna spend it, spend it early. It's the right move and honestly I'm impressed with the speed that he's doing things. (Would be happier if I agreed with what he was doing but still, it's nice to see government moving.)

BTW Rasmussen approval down to 51%:

If you are going to piss people, the time to do it is now, because in 2 years he's going to have to kiss everybody's ass or else he'll lose the senate.

I think he'll have big gains in the Senate. The people who are pee-o'd are his sworn political enemies. They'd be doing the outraged dance no matter what he did. May as well give them something to cry about.

"I think he'll have big gains in the Senate. The people who are pee-o'd are his sworn political enemies. They'd be doing the outraged dance no matter what he did. May as well give them something to cry about."

The people who are crying & protesting are indeed his sworn political enemies, and neither them nor the core Trump supporters won't be changing their votes regardless of what happens.

The 10% in the middle - the people that weren't really sure but didn't trust Hillary; the people that were offended by the Billy Bush video but felt like nothing was happening in Washington; the socially liberal blue collar workers that were more afraid for their jobs than anything else. Those are the ones that swing elections, and those are the ones whose asses have to be kissed come election time.

...unless the Hillary Clinton TV show keeps reminding them of what they voted against!

Or, they could just renew "Madam Secretary" for another season... the Network should have had to report that show's cost to the FEC as a series of campaign ads - which it obviously is.

The Dems are doing it themselves. What would impress an average middle American more than an ugly woman walking around in a vagina costume? Or lefties disrupting airports and burning trash and cars in the street?

Americans looked at that behavior and are disgusted.

Opening factories will impress Americans. Cheaper health insurance and lower taxes. Less government interference and regulation.

Americans were sickened and afraid of what happened in San Bernadino, the Pulse nightclub and the Boston marathon.

Where were Chuckie Schumer's tears then?

You think Americans buy for a minute that obviously phony political theater?

Democrats think thier little political theater is helping them.

It's the opposite.

Dems are going to get smoked in '18.

There are many ways of tinkering with poll results other than how a question is worded. In a poll of a thousand likely voters, changing the stratification of a few respondents can have a significant impact on the final results. Given the unhinged lefts desire for a certain result, it wouldn't be hard for a little trial and error with the stratification to derive the result they believe is "true". Evidence of such tinkering to get a desired outcome would be difficult if not impossible to see after the fact.

There are two ways the same poll could drift:
1) they change the wording over time
2) they change the party distribution over time

There is no reason to believe that Rasmussen, the most pro-Trump poll, would alter their methodology over the course of a week.

Stop trying to come up with excuses. You don't see me trying to claim polls are distorted when it goes the other way.

Two polls showing Trump over 50%:

Reuters - Trump 50.1%

Amazing - this after non-stop liberal hysteria and MSM bashing.

The Rasmussen Reports daily

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.

Seventy-nine percent (79%) of Republicans approve; 72% of Democrats disapprove. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 51% approve, while 49% disapprove.

Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

'Pubs love him, indies like him, and only the sad little Democrats hate him.

I'm good with that.

Well I have yet to see the Rasmussen methodology (am not willing to pay the subscription fee and for some reason they don't make it public), but even if it is 55%, it's historically low for presidents coming out of the gates:
