New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples"

The Leftist media, and their collusion with the Elite inside of the U.S. Government is really nothing short of a psychological operation against America.  We are being totally manipulated 24/7 from media.  

Believing that Trump's Electoral College landslide now leaves him, before he even gets into office, with a 40% approval rating, especially considering the jobs he has ALREADY brought to this nation and a record setting Stock Market is as laughable as 58% of Americans giving Obama a favorable job performance rating, as we are being programmed to believe on a daily basis!!!

In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  



In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters.

But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...

...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.

"A total of 1,000 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. Among the entire sample, 32% described themselves as Democrats, 24% described themselves as Republicans, and 44% described themselves as independents or members of another party.

Of course, as we've repeatedly pointed out, these sampling mixes couldn't be further from reality.

And while a quick 2 second review of the methodology of these polls immediately reveals their obvious bias, here are some of the results. 
ABC latched on to the conclusion that Trump is just being super mean to the media...

Even though they found that the media is treating him "fairly."

Meanwhile, ABC/WaPo found that President-elect Trump is the least popular candidate to take the White House in modern history, with a 40% approval rating...

...while his cabinet picks were apparently equally disliked by ABC/Wapo's disaffected Hillary supporters.

In conclusion, this seemed to sum up today's polls perfectly:
