The fake news attacks on President Donald Trump continue unabated.
The Washington Post published a new poll over the weekend which highlighted President Trump as “the least popular president in modern times.” The poll showed the President’s approval rating at 42 percent, while his disapproval rating was 53 percent.
But, as the Washington Examiner reported, buried deep in the Washington Post story was the remarkable finding that if the 2016 election were re-held today, Trump would still beat Hillary Clinton by a margin of 43 percent for Trump to just 40 percent for Mrs. Clinton in the popular vote.
The poll did not escape the notice of the President who tweeted out his response:
The two fake news polls released yesterday, ABC & NBC, while containing some very positive info, were totally wrong in General E. Watch!

During the 2016 election, virtually all the polls had Hillary Clinton winning the election hands down. The only two national polls to call the 2016 election correctly were the Investor’s Business Daily poll and the Rasmussen poll. The left-leaning polling industry spent much of 2016 degrading these two pollsters, and even today has a hard time acknowledging that IBD and Rasmussen were right and they were all wrong.
The Washington Post/ABC News poll also reported that Trump’s support among his base remains strong with 96% of Trump voters saying they would vote for him again. In addition, 53% of all voters said the President was a “strong leader.”

It is apparent that no matter how the people really feel about President Trump the left-leaning press is going to continue to do their best to hide results that show how the people really feel about the President.
