That is in your eyes only.

According to Gallop he is actually down four points.

2018 Oct 22-28 40 54 6
2018 Oct 15-21 44 50 6

the columns are approval disapproval and no opinion.

He is going to have to go up five points in November to be tied for last place.

congrats, that's an image so could be made to say any number plus there's no date on it (however, i concede Rasmussen has had Trump at 50%... however it is also the HIGHEST poll you will find for Trump that has any credibility whatsoever)

FiveThirtyEight uses multiple polls to give an average (each green & orange dot is a poll)... and grades Rasmussen as a C+ (a not great rating):

Yeah, but the photo is so big you can give him a big fat wet kiss.

Tw still using fivethirtyeight, lmao

because Hillary didn't win with their 71% chance, they are garbage?

also it's a collection of polls, seems a lot more reasonable than picking the one that makes you look best (as Trump does)

...and if people are still embarrassed to admit they support Trump, that's still not a good reflection on the 'man'

I wish I could post the /pol/ collage with all the fivethirtyeight fails
the wanderer

if a poll is 48/52 and the 48 wins, is that a fail?

because racking up many 'fails' like that when they have hundreds of polls isn't too shocking

here's their current midterm predictions (w/ a nicely done map of every seat... w/ two viewing options), we can evaluate in a week

5 august 2015.. silver gives trump 2% chance of winning primaries [when trump is polling around 25% and over double next candidate]

9 june 2016.. 538 gives hillary 66.8% chance in forecast [default "polls only forecast" model]

12 july 2016.. 538 gives hillary 77.4% chance

30 july 2016.. 538 gives hillary 49.9% chance [trump favorite]

17 august 2016.. 538 gives hillary 88.3% chance

26 september 2016.. 538 gives hillary 54.8% chance

17 october 2016.. hillary 88.1% chance

5 november 2016.. hillary 66.7% chance

8 november.. hillary 71.4% chance

first one was dumb

the rest suggests silver shouldn't have been making confident forecasts far from election day with lots of time for change.. when he got repeated wild fluctuations like that [ie at most claim some "if the election were held today" bs]

final rcp average.. clinton +2.1 [these are popular vote margin]
final rasmussen poll.. clinton +1.7
final 538 forecast.. clinton +3.6
actual.. clinton +2.1

getting beat by simple rcp average by 1.5 suggests all the 538 fancy poll ratings and weights and bias adjustments wasn't doing silver much good

Thu Nov 01 03:31:18
oops.. final rcp average was really clinton +3.2

so only beat by 0.4
werewolf dictator
Thu Nov 01 03:47:12
i do have to admit 538 was better than rcp averages for individual states [although rcp just says closer races are "toss ups"]

"all i see at delude's link is pelosi..."

That's because you're incredibly stupid and I'm sure it's hard to see anything when your head is so far up Trump's anal cavity.
werewolf dictator
Thu Nov 01 11:17:35
probably i only see pelosi and schumer because their numbers stand out so much [while trump is pretty great for world leader]

putin's was only one using "confidence" by bloomberg

recent rferl credits him 66% "approval"

Pillz thinks 538 is bad. Forwyn thinks Vox is trash. Cuckservatives are so fucking stupid; some of the best sources are "bad" to them.

Sadly enough Forwyn has actually reproduced. Hopefully a mass shooter takes him and his kids out. It would be karmic justice.

if someone wanted to be pollster with amazingly accurate track record.. they should just hire dukhat and predict the opposite of whatever he's saying
