Another BIG example of mainstream media polling bias. This is how they do it.

Note how Politico 1) understates Republican approval of Trump, 2) overstates Democratic Party-ID weight, 3) understates Independent approval of Trump.

Rasmussen (Gallup Party ID)
Party ID Approve Disapprove
Rep 26%…. 95% 5%
Dem 31%…. 12% 88%
Ind 43%…. 57.2% 40.5%
Poll 100%….53% 46% < +7% net approval

Politico (Morning Consulting pollster)
Party-ID Approve Disapprove
Rep 31%…. 83% 15% < 83% too low by 10%
Dem 42%…. 7% 91% < 42% Dems over weighted by 10%
Ind 28%…. 36% 62% < 36% too low by at least 15%
Poll 100%…. 38% 60% < -22% net approval
