In a week of that saw an epic downturn in trump's approval rating, Rasmussen Reports measures trump's national approval rating at 49%. This is a stark contrast with other reputable polls which have trump at around 34% (see below). Absent a change in ownership or a published change in methodology by Rasmussen, I propose any poster that references them in defense of a political argument be met with joyful derision. After all, an appeal to a false authority should never be tolerated among friends in civil discourse. How Popular Is Donald Trump? Edit: Yes... I know this is the wrong forum. I've requested deletion or migration to Too Hot.
