Why does Rasmussen Poll go UP when Trump is in crisis (9 points higher than average of other polls?

Has Rasmussen been bought?

If you average all the other Trump approval polls on RCP, you find that they are at around 44%, 9 points lower than Rasmussen.

Why does Trump get MORE support with Rasmussen (up 1 to 53%) when he faces his biggest crisis and everything he does turns to sh**?

Why does Rasmussen show "country in right direction" at between 45% and 47% since Trump's inauguration? That is higher than at any time under Obama? It is hard to believe that with Trump as the so-called President almost half the nation think we are now heading in the right direction.

Can anyone explain this?

8. Is there any point in them actually polling people when they may as well just make up the figures?

6. Nothing new. You can always subtract 10 points from Rasmussen's "R" numbers.

Rasmussen is part of the GOP media machine.
