Trump Makes Up a Poll Touting African-American Support, Approval
President continues telling tall tales leading up to elections
When the truth is inconvenient, make up your own facts. That seems to be President Donald Trump’s motto. The president posted a tweet Sunday morning referring to a poll that does not exist, as noticed by many journalists on Twitter.
Of course, Trump is a president who is well-known for his lies and falsehoods. The Washington Post recently released fact-checking data that revealed he made nearly 6,500 false or misleading claims during his 649 days in office. However, the Post noted that his rate has increased recently; in the seven weeks leading up to the midterm elections, he has averaged an impressive 30 falsehoods per day.

GTFO Bronto you filthy, lying Nazi worm. You're utter scum, do you know that?
Trump Cites Fake Poll Claiming African-American Approval Rating
“New Fox Poll shows a 40% Approval Rating by African Americans for President Trump, a record for Republicans. Thank you, a great honor!” Trump tweeted Sunday.
However, it turns out that such a poll doesn’t actually exist. A Fox spokesperson told Talking Points Memo that the poll Trump is referring to is likely a Rasmussen poll that claimed his approval rating among black people was at 50 percent.
As Michael Tester, an associate professor of political science at the University of California at Irvine, wrote in the Washington Post: “polling firms that have interviewed far more African Americans, and that are much more transparent than Rasmussen, all show that Trump’s black approval rating is much lower than 36 percent.”
Think Progress notes that more credible polls like Gallup, Ipsos/Reuters, and YouGov/Economist show his approval rating with black people is likely closer to 10 to 15 percent.
God, you make me sick to my stomach Bronto. You really do. You dirty, subhuman, wholeheartedly corrupt little piece of shit.

I'm not bronto you filthy piece of bullshit. Are you illiterate you shit for brains mental lepper?
*“It’s 100 percent false,” declared another white person billing himself as a journalist. “Is Trump simply lying or is he so unhinged that he thinks its true?”
Actually, it turns out to be 100 percent true that such a poll was conducted — by Rasmussen. The results of that poll were reported by a columnist at FoxNews.com, which is where President Trump presumably learned of it.
Now crawl back in your hole Pinnochio.

You obviously are Bronto you lying retarded idiot.
Actually, it turns out to be 100 percent true that such a poll was conducted — by Rasmussen.
I have literally just posted confirmation that the Rasmussen poll said 50 percent, not 40 percent. It was furthermore scoffed at by political experts.
If you aren't Bronto, then why are you posting fake news, and trying to lie your way out of admitting that it is fake news?
Care to explain that Bronto, you "filthy piece of bullshit"?
