Poll-dancing: Is Biden really at 49 percent approval?
By AZ Buck
Here are the biased numbers for the recent Economist-YouGov poll that gives Joe Biden a 49% approval rating. A first-year reporter could retrieve this information with ease, unless he were incompetent, lazy, or most likely biased. I guess most Dems are accustomed to living in such willful ignorance. They will swallow and pass along any talking point from the media elites if they are slanted against conservatives.
The Economist–YouGov poll
July 10–13, 2021 — 1,500 U.S. Adult Citizens
Registered 2020 Vote Party ID
Dem (324) Republican (235) Independent (260)
Ninety-nine more Democrats sampled vs. Republicans were included in the results. It is not hard to get the results you want if the polls are assembled in this way, and this is always the method with these polls.
A total of 819 from 1,500 participants. Does that mean the rest were dumped because they are not registered to vote or affiliated with a party? Were their answers included in the reported percentages? Were the others thrown out for having the politically wrong answer? I guess they just disappeared overnight. Where have I heard that before?
