Skip to comments.Washington Post gobsmacked over its own poll result on Trump soaring approval -- and hastens to tell its readers it may be an 'outlier'

It's got to be tough to be the leaders at the Washington Post, water-carriers for the Biden administration.
Along with many others, they took a poll to see how his re-election prospects are going ... and they didn't like the results.
A Washington Post-ABC News poll finds President Biden struggling to gain approval from a skeptical public, with dissatisfaction growing over his handling of the economy and immigration, a rising share saying the United States is doing too much to aid Ukraine in its war with Russia and broad concerns about his age as he seeks a second term.
Biden and former president Donald Trump appear headed for a rematch of their 2020 contest, although more than 3 in 5 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents say they would prefer a nominee other than the president. But Biden’s advisers have argued that he is the strongest Democrat for 2024 and those who wish for someone else share no consensus on who that should be, with 8 percent naming Vice President Harris, 8 percent naming Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and 20 percent saying they prefer “just someone else.” The Post-ABC poll shows Biden trailing Trump by 10 percentage points at this early stage in the election cycle, although the sizable margin of Trump’s lead in this survey is significantly at odds with other public polls that show the general election contest a virtual dead heat. The difference between this poll and others, as well as the unusual makeup of Trump’s and Biden’s coalitions in this survey, suggest it is probably an outlier.

Maybe …maybe not
Why report on it if you weren’t sure of the results ?
Regardless of the truth, why did they release this poll?
if they were on the stupid joe bandwagon
they would not have published the poll
WaPo: “We’re sorry. We actually stopped counting at the 95% mark. Please let us count the final 5%, and we’ll get back to you with the REAL poll results.”
When the Demented Pedophile is leading it’s NOT an “outlier”. ROTFLMAO! What a bunch of schmucks!
Maybe to spook the dnc into replacing Biden ?
Meh - polls this far out are next to useless, but I have a sneaking sense this is NOT an outlier at this point in time. Much media bedwetting to ensue!
First “registered voters” is a laugh. Second, polls are to sway public opinion not measure it. Third, treat all/most polls as entertainment, not information.
Good question, they were quick to call it “an outlier”. Maybe they are trying to help the DNC push Traitor Joe out or maybe they will cook the sample next time to make sure it’s an outlier or it could be something else.
The WaPo itself is an out(right)liar.
Polls of registered voters tend to lean Democrat.
They trash talked their own poll because it did not show them what they wanted to hear! LOL this is too funny
Back in the garage, JOHN BIGBOOTE tries to open the jet car's door.
JOHN BIGBOOTE: It's locked.
He pokes around the jet car.
JOHN BIGBOOTE: John O'Connor, smash the window.
JOHN O'CONNOR: Why me, John Bigboote?
JOHN BIGBOOTE hands JOHN O'CONNOR a wrench.
JOHN BIGBOOTE: It might be booby-trapped.
JOHN O'CONNOR: Oh.
JOHN O'CONNOR smashes the jet car's window.
“First “registered voters” is a laugh.”
It may be a laugh now but in 2020 they were pretty good indicators.
Universal mail in ballots along with harvesting made “registered voters” into “likely voters”.
I’m surprised they published it.
“Ignore our poll, it is an outlier.”
I love the smell of liberal flop sweat in the morning. It smells like victory!
