Super tiny little bounce noticable with 538 avg trump approval when Harris picked GONE

Last edited Mon Aug 17, 2020, 10:11 AM - Edit history (1)

But all gone now He's back up to 41.9%, better than before pick.

I have been watching this since day one of this travesty. Telling me this measurement - overall mood/trend of country doesn't matter doesn't matter

Not too worried since Harris pick was about boosting Dem turnout - not about swinging undecideds

5. Yes! True. Yet a two full point jump up in such a short time

Is very troubling.

So what's happened lately?

1. Biden picked Harris, the right full out trashing her. (Yes, would have done that to anyone except maybe to a lesser degree had he picked Duckworth?)

2. NBC poll Kornacke just showing on MSNBC..
- Trump still favored over Biden on economy (lies, but trump flaunts and boasts every day)

- Trump still favored over Biden on crime. Trump mentions this constantly too. My wingnut in-laws think every city in America is on fire and looting abounding.

Biden ahead on immigration, healthcare, foreign policy and coronavirus handling.

6. It's short-term noise; sampling error.

11. It was always going to go up and not down

The problem is too many people around here asserting Trump would drop to 30 or 35% approval. They have no clue regarding the applicable numbers. It would require 10 to 15 million hard core partisans reversing course during an incumbent reelection year. That simply doesn't happen.

7. Stop obsessing over every little bump on the polls.

As I recall people here were so convinced Clinton was going to win because she was up in the polls (and not by much, mind you, by a point or two in quite a few sing states). And then of course that didn't happen. To look at every little bump and obsess over it makes no sense.

8. It got your attention.

The title alone would have given you enough info to not bother reading the OP, much less respond to it.

9. I think replying just to criticize/obsess about someone who watches the polls and

trends is a waste of time.
