Rasmussen: Trump Approval at 49%

Rasmussen seems too GOP-tilted, but...

Since last week's State of the Union address, Trumpís approval ratings have been running slightly ahead of where Barack Obama was at this stage of his presidency.

Also, Trump's RCP average is trending up to 41.8%, which isn't great, but then, Obama had 43-44% approval throughout most of his presidency and the media called him "very popular."

51 Don't forget the 5 percent rule, viz., that Democrats get a 5 percent bump and Republicans get a 5 percent markdown in the polls. Gallup is notorious for this.

Collorary:
1. If polls say slight Democrat lead, it's neck and neck, (47.5/52.5 really means 50/50)
2. If polls say neck and neck, slight Republican lead,
3. If polls say slight Republican lead, Republican blowout.

Yeah, if it's true that Trump has increased his support among independents dramatically--and I think it is true--then polls can be expected to understate his support much more than before.

That's been going on since the election...

Posted by: H. Rodham Clinton at February 12, 2018 07:18 PM (Gt3b6)

113 Excerpt from a long-ago zombietime essay:

The actual grunt-work of doing public-opinion polling is a low-paying job that doesn't require much (or any) experience. The people asking the "Who will you vote for?" questions either sit in a room for hours on end making repetitive calls, or walk door-to-door in potentially dodgy neighborhoods -- not particularly high-end work. Who would apply for and accept such a job? Not someone who already has a higher-paying job. Not someone who has experience or skills that would allow them a better career or position. Not someone who is middle-class or middle-aged. Not someone who is wealthy. Generally, college students, the under-employeed and/or the under-educated make up the majority of people who do the actual rubber-meets-the-road polling of asking the questions and writing down the answers. Though there are no published statistics about the demoographics of pollers themselves, the fact that, for example, The Gallup Poll routinely recruits entry-level call-center employees on college campuses lends support to this supposition. And, anecdotally, when I was a college student I briefly worked for a public-opinion call center doing this exact kind of job, and my fellow pollers were almost all college students or underemployed folks, some of whom only worked a limited number of hours per week so as to still qualify for government benefits.

Now, as we all know, college students (especially these days) are usually at the apex of left-wing sentiment in their lives' political journey. As has been documented extensively, people tend to get more conservative as they get older and acquire more responsibilities. And contemporary college students are almost all being influenced toward leftist ideologies by the liberal atmosphere on most campuses. Some will later grow out of it and slowly shift to the center or right, but while they're in college, they're in the thrall of their doctrinaire professors.

Furthermore, chronically underemployed or unemployed people also tend to support left-leaning and populist candidates -- especially those who are promising free health care, more government benefits, job programs in poor areas, and so on. This is not a controversial supposition: it's also been documented extensively that wealthy people tend to support Republicans who promise to lower taxes, and poorer people tend to support Democrats who promise more handouts.

So, I posit that the vast majority of people actually doing the polling are themselves Democrat voters. Not necessarily the CEOs who own the polling companies, but the people actually picking up the phone and making the calls, or walking door-to-door.

This fact has potentially significant implications for the outcomes of polls. Imagine, for a moment, that you were one of the rare Republicans in a polling call-center; wouldn't you be a little depressed if person after person you called stated that they were intending to vote for a Democrat? How could you not be? But what if you were a Democrat working in that same call center? Wouldn't you be elated or enthused to hear the votes for your side piling up? Of course you would. Ah, but pollers are under strict instructions to not reveal their personal opinions to the people they're polling. And I'm sure that most try to follow the rules. But even if you grant that, say, 90% of them manage to maintain complete neutrality, and not let some kind of expectation creep into their voice or attitude, that still leaves 10% who might consciously or unconsciously be slanting the results. And that's all it would take to screw up a poll. Even a 95% honesty rate leaves room for 5% bias in the results, which can be very significant in a close race like this one.

Yet I'm not concerned about the 10% or 5% of pollers who consciously allow their personal opinion to slip into the conversation. I'm concerned about the 90%+ who try to appear impartial. The operative word here is "try" -- because as we learned from an amazing horse (yes, a horse), "trying" isn't good enough.

The Clever Hans Effect

...etc.

The rest of the essay shows that even unconscious bias on the part of a questioner heavily influences the answers he gets.

Is POF better or worse than OkCupid. OKC permits more descriptiveness and has a battery of survey questions you are free to answer, or not answer, and then see how she responded or didn't respond in her profile.

Dear Diary,

I just came from a meeting with the President Barack "By the Book" Obama and Dir. Jim "It Was All His Idea" Comey.

The President stressed how everything about wiretapping the Russian Oligarch Trump must be done by the book and we totally did not violate half the Federal Code trying to drag Bribe Me-Granny's consumptive ass across the finish line.

But if anything illegal was done, it was all Comey's fault because everyone knows Barry and I are 100% "By the Book".

Goodnight, Diary. I'll be writing more self-serving ex post facto alibis soon.

Remember: By the Book!

Oh brother. *eye roll* A president wouldn't say that their wife was "hot." A preezy of the steezy, however, would.

I just saw those portraits. How horrible. Mooch's is of a completely different (better looking) woman. His certainly has more of a resemblance, but how very weird the whole thing is.

He and his wife had gotten rid of all their "regular" furniture. They had furnished it in all 50s/60s furniture and decor. It was absolutely the coolest house I'd ever seen.
