    Oops. Fox News Accidentally Punks Trump

    Trump was quick to post about it on twitter, but it was wrong. As of now, the tweet is still up.



    Fox Business issues correction for botched Trump approval poll

    The Fox Business Network issued an on-air correction Thursday after the network aired a poll graphic — later shared online by President Donald Trump — that incorrectly displayed the president's unfavorable rating as his job approval rating.

    “It’s been a quite start to the day for President Trump, though he did send out a tweet this morning from the Lou Dobbs show last night on Fox Business," Washington correspondent Blake Burman said on behalf of Fox Business. "That tweet featured a poll that was not entirely accurate, which Fox Business would like to correct."

    The Georgetown Politics poll, as featured on Fox Business network's "Lou Dobbs Tonight," showed a 58 percent approval rating for Trump's handling of the economy and a 55 percent overall approval rating for the president.

    However, the 55 percent figure actually represents the number of respondents who said they hold unfavorable views of Trump. According to the survey, 41 percent have a favorable view of Trump. Of those polled, 52 percent disapprove of Trump's job as president, compared with the 43 percent who said they approve.

    "According to a poll from Georgetown University, 58 percent of respondents approved of the president’s handling of the economy. That portion of the graphic was right," Burman said. "However, the graphic also showed that 55 percent of the respondents approve of the president, that number is not correct. The 55 percent number was those who have an unfavorable impression of President Trump.”

    Fox News White House Correspondent Kevin Corke also issued a similar statement on Fox News.

    Trump tweeted a screenshot of the incorrect infographic to his 59.6 million followers, adding "Great news! #MAGA." The president has not taken down his tweet.
    "There is always a tweet. That has become accepted fact in the Trump presidency: For every pronouncement the President makes, there is at least one tweet from his past that directly contradicts his current view." -CNN

    Take down his tweet? Are they kidding? Fox News gave him a freebie with that graphic. Why would he want to miss an opportunity like that?

    He knows his base will not question it. Anything that makes Trump look good- truth or not- Trump likes it. Anything which does not make him look good is either "fake news" or "wasn't me, man!"

    The way Trump sees it, what makes him look good must necessarily be true. So something like that not being true isn't an issue. If the poll data didn't support what Fox Business put on that screen, then it was the poll that was wrong. The screen was right.

    And I hope he gets asked about this publicly. Because mark my words, his response will be some variation of what I just said.

    Trump's polling isn't good and not very promising for a re-election. A state newspaper in NC published by the John Locke Foundation contained a poll conducted recently and Trump was losing pretty badly to a Democrat in a 2020 campaign. That's a poll of right-leaning respondents!

    Maybe, but Trump needs to stop $#@!ting on his base pretty soon if that's the plan, otherwise it'll be another GHWB/Clinton/Perot election.

    Couple of possibilities. One, he wants to lose. https://theweek.com/speedreads/83347...ants-lose-2020

    Two- he believes he can't lose no matter what he does or says.



    And #3- (not an "or") - he only truely cares about what Trump thinks.

    Or #4 - he knows he won't be around to see it. But that's rabbit hole stuff not for this thread.

    Or #5 he's not capable of losing because he's a winner
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Just today he threw a bone to his base by following their wishes for him to arrest Julian Assange.

    I am curious. I know if a member like AF gives reputation it is powerful and means more than a nobody giving reputation. How does reputation from an all red member effect a person receiving it? Does it lower the recipients reputation or increase it?
