Default Fox News poll..

.
Latest Fox News poll, sounds like other polls..makes it look like Pres Trump is high on disapproval list. That is FAR removed from what I hear people say in normal, everyday conversation...even allowing for the fact that I live in a very conservative region .

It is also far from what we hear on TV, with their man-on-the-street interviews

I don't believe a reasonably close poll can be conducted anymore. Most seem to be conducted by phone, and thus, any results would be skewed toward the demographics which would be inclined to answer unrecognizable numbers.

There are some polls launched upon the web, which are likely to be even worse, since there are some groups who rarely visit the internet..and even larger groups who are not likely to participate..

Yet, some fanatics are likely to try to fool the poll by using the internet to muster their groups of friends to flood any poll.

It's not rocket science the polls are useless! You hit it on the head Ironglow!

I get frequent phone calls from"polls" and answer the same way each time....."I don't participate in polls because you just fill in the blanks the way whoever paid for the poll wants it to go...goodbye!"

The polls are generated to get the desired response the questioner wants, at least the ones that are made public.

The Quinipiac poll is always left leaning in the majority response, nothing new there. It's based in New Haven County, Ct and that's where a large percentage of leftists are residing.

Yup, that's how it rolls. We took a poll at the gun club last week with 33 members present. Trump scored a 96.6666 and one member got kicked out of the club. My kinda poll!
