Spicer: President Approval Ratings Using The Same Polls That Predicted Election Incorrectly

During a Sunday interview with Fox News Channel’s Howard Kurtz on “Media Buzz,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer weighed in on the recent surveys that have given President Donald Trump poor approval ratings.

Spicer shrugged off the poll results, saying they are the same ones that failed to predict Trump would win the presidential election.

“In some cases, these are the same polls and the same demographical makeups of the polls that underestimated his win in the first place,” Spicer told Kurtz. “I think when you look at the same polls that didn’t understand the makeup of the country that got him 306 electoral votes. And you’re using the same methodology to judge now, you recognize in a lot of cases the polling is misrepresenting a good degree of folks out there.”
