Stop believing Rasmussen when it's convenient.

Several people have touted the fact that Trump's approval is down in Rasmussen.
Here's the problem with that
When Rasmussen decides to pretend Trump is recovering, you will have to whine about how the Rasmussen poll is unreliable and biased (which it is).

Very soon, Rasmussen will receive angry email from its predominantly conservative subscribers, demanding that the pollster "get it right".
Rasmussen will not wish to lose revenue and will bring Trump back up to 50%.
Just don't make Rasmussen famous.

2. The trend is clear, Rasmussen reflects that trend clearly. I don't pay

 

Attention to numbers, it's all about the trend and rate of change.

12. You can, I suppose. But you can't look at Rasmussen.

And you better not whine when Rasmussen goes down. We have been warned.

10. The point is that even a pro-Trump outlier poll has to admit his trend is downward.

Other polls show it, but Rasmussen's inclination to hide it can't be maintained because the trend is so strong.

14. Thanks

Saved me the trouble of having to post this rather obvious point.

15. I think you're missing the point

People aren't pointed to Rasmussen because it's accurate. They're pointing to Rasmussen because, even with it's built-in biases, the trend line is showing Trump losing support.
