Trump fumes over low popularity

WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump says the polls have it all wrong, so on Thursday he calculated his own popularity rating: 75 percent.
The Republican began reflecting on his approval numbers with an overnight tweet celebrating a new poll that gave him 50 percent.
“Working hard, thank you!” he wrote on a tweet featuring a huge “50%” superimposed over a picture of Trump clapping at a campaign rally.
The only problem is that the pollsters coming up with that number, Rasmussen, are serious outliers. All other polling companies, like Gallup, give Trump considerably lower ratings, with an average of just 43 percent, according to RealClearPolitics.com.
The other problem is that 50 percent -- which creeps up from Rasmussen’s previous 49 percent -- doesn’t exactly set the world on fire either. So early on Thursday, Trump tweeted again, this time stating that his bad numbers are caused by the growing probe into alleged improper, or even criminal, links between the president and Russia.
