    Many people in the community are seeing how Dems pander and how Dems create policies that force the community into situations that create negative influences. 

    Oh, has anyone seen my hot sauce?

    Jesus Christ, how much are they paying these people to say these things?  I don't know any black or Hispanics who approve of Trump.  Not one.
    See? Team Trump Treason has zero approval  from minorities.

    First, Black pastors have historically been more inclined to the conservative party because of the social issues.  This isn't news.  Nor is it gospel (pun intended) just because a pastor in NC declares that he is the most pro-black president.  
    Second, the 1 to 2 points that Chris Cilliza points out as "significant' on that CNN article is dubious as well.  He is reading multiple polls, with multiple methodologies and MOE's, and aggregating them to come up with a conclusion that Trump's support has moved a few points.  At least that's how I read his 'analysis'.  It's mathematically wrong in so many ways.  Now I'm not saying that Trump's support is really 9% and not 11%.. it could have been 11% all along for all we know, since this is in the MOE.  I'm saying that Trump/Breitbart declaration is woefully inaccurate and that his support always has been and likely continues to be south of 15%.

    From the article:  "Black pastor on Trump: He’s ‘most pro-black president in our lifetime’"

    Trump is more pro black than Clinton was and definitely more pro black than Obama.  I mean, hey, how could anyone argue that, right?

    Didn't Trump say he was the least racist person he knows ... LMFAO ... Trump should make people realize, you need a way to remove this imbecile, that doesn't rely on a crooked republican party to get him out...now that I said that, he'll slap tariffs on me.

    Well you said you hadn't heard of any black people that support him and when presented with an example you try to marginalize it.  Ok.

    If Trump is so racist then why are black voter number in support of Trump continuing to go up? Weird. Approval rate for Trump among black voters is up to 36% (from 19% on this day last year).

    Hey I'm just curious about where in that link does it say that black approval rating is at 36% on the daily tracking poll.  I read the link, don't see it.  It's important because Rasmussen only surveys 500 people a day, on a rolling three day basis.  It's important to understand the MOE specific to blacks in the polls.  How many did the pollsters talk to?  It could have been very low and therefore a statistical anomaly.  Since you are posting this, I'm sure you read through the details.  Help a brother out.  
    All good questions, here's another: Did Rasmussen use the same methodology in conducting this latest poll as they did a year ago when the number was 19%?
    My question wasn't about method,  it was about whether this was a short term anomaly. Remember it's a three day tracking poll,  and we don't know the statistical size of the black sample. 
    Understood but then aren't all polls then considered short term? If so then all polls can be considered short term anomalies. Haven't we learned anything from Nov 2016?

    No, the national polls were generally dead on.  They were certainly within the margin of error. It's when they went to the state sample did they go awry.  With Rasmussen, they are talking to 500 people.  That's quite small.  And they aren't talking to 500 African Americans, rather they probably try to get a subset similar to the population size.  Since blacks compromise 10% of the population, it's possible that only 50 people were polled.  It's instructive that Rasmussen themselves did not even publicize this to my knowledge.  It was not in their summary.  It was the White House or Breitbart that picked it up, likely while picking through the internals.  But you need to be a platinum member to see how many blacks were sampled.  Shockingly that wasn't blasted from the Twitter handle.

    You're missing the point.  The poll is not designed to capture a statistically significant sample of AAs. The poll is attempting to reflect the population.  That's why it's weighted for Democrats, Republicans, women,  AAs, etc.  But you can't read each of those subgroups and draw conclusions from them.  For a poll to measure AA support of trump,  it would have to be a stand alone poll of 500 to 1000 with its own subs. Like I said earlier,  because AAs make up 10%, they may have talked to as few as 50 people.  And if the rate of voting is lower than the population as a whole,  the number would be even smaller.  Therefore you cannot draw conclusions from these numbers.  This is basic statistics. And again,  likely why Rasmussen hadn't said a word to my knowledge.  
    Your president thinks you're stupid and lies to you everyday.  This is just another example.

The poll is attempting to reflect the population.  That's why it's weighted for Democrats, Republicans, women,  AAs, etc.  But you can't read each of those subgroups and draw conclusions from them.  For a poll to measure AA support of trump,  it would have to be a stand alone poll of 500 to 1000 with its own subs. Like I said earlier,  because AAs make up 10%, they may have talked to as few as 50 people.  And if the rate of voting is lower than the population as a whole,  the number would be even smaller.  Therefore you cannot draw conclusions from these numbers.  This is basic statistics. And again,  likely why Rasmussen hadn't said a word to my knowledge.  
    Your president thinks you're stupid and lies to you everyday.  This is just another example. 
      
    aren't all polls conducted within 1. 48 hours and 2. Sampling 500-1000 participants?
    Too many words for you to digest?
    I thought they were simple questions, I even numbered them for you.
    I cannot take this discussion any further until those are answered.
    Is it not prudent to compare rasmussan to other more legitimate or generally accepted polls?
    I'm trying to discern which polls I should trust and which I should write off as propaganda.

    If Trump is so racist then why are black voter number in support of Trump continuing to go up? Weird. Approval rate for Trump among black voters is up to 36% (from 19% on this day last year).

    Hey I'm just curious about where in that link does it say that black approval rating is at 36% on the daily tracking poll.  I read the link, don't see it.  It's important because Rasmussen only surveys 500 people a day, on a rolling three day basis.  It's important to understand the MOE specific to blacks in the polls.  How many did the pollsters talk to?  It could have been very low and therefore a statistical anomaly.  Since you are posting this, I'm sure you read through the details.  Help a brother out.  
    All good questions, here's another: Did Rasmussen use the same methodology in conducting this latest poll as they did a year ago when the number was 19%?
    My question wasn't about method,  it was about whether this was a short term anomaly. Remember it's a three day tracking poll,  and we don't know the statistical size of the black sample. 
    Understood but then aren't all polls then considered short term? If so then all polls can be considered short term anomalies. Haven't we learned anything from Nov 2016?
    No, the national polls were generally dead on.  They were certainly within the margin of error. It's when they went to the state sample did they go awry.  With Rasmussen, they are talking to 500 people.  That's quite small.  And they aren't talking to 500 African Americans, rather they probably try to get a subset similar to the population size.  Since blacks compromise 10% of the population, it's possible that only 50 people were polled.  It's instructive that Rasmussen themselves did not even publicize this to my knowledge.  It was not in their summary.  It was the White House or Breitbart that picked it up, likely while picking through the internals.  But you need to be a platinum member to see how many blacks were sampled.  Shockingly that wasn't blasted from the Twitter handle.

    Are you that obtuse? The questions aren't relevant to why the conclusion being trumpeted is false.  Rasmussen is a daily tracking poll that is designed to trace the OVERALL approval rating of the president, not that of subgroups.  There's nothing wrong with their methods,  although I think they have always oversampled Republicans,  that's why they are always look favorable to Republicans.  But you can't draw conclusions from the crosstabs, and that's likely what the president's team did. 

    I'm trying to help you understand but you're being dense.

    I really don't know what all the noise is about.  If you look at more than one poll, Trump's approval rating with blacks is somewhere between 9% and 12%.  I'm not sure in which universe that is considered "doing well", but I'm pretty sure it not the one most of us live in.

    If Trump is so racist then why are black voter number in support of Trump continuing to go up? Weird. Approval rate for Trump among black voters is up to 36% (from 19% on this day last year). 

    http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/trump_administration/prez_track_aug15
    Hey I'm just curious about where in that link does it say that black approval rating is at 36% on the daily tracking poll.  I read the link, don't see it.  It's important because Rasmussen only surveys 500 people a day, on a rolling three day basis.  It's important to understand the MOE specific to blacks in the polls.  How many did the pollsters talk to?  It could have been very low and therefore a statistical anomaly.  Since you are posting this, I'm sure you read through the details.  Help a brother out.  
    All good questions, here's another: Did Rasmussen use the same methodology in conducting this latest poll as they did a year ago when the number was 19%?
    My question wasn't about method,  it was about whether this was a short term anomaly. Remember it's a three day tracking poll,  and we don't know the statistical size of the black sample. 
    Understood but then aren't all polls then considered short term? If so then all polls can be considered short term anomalies. Haven't we learned anything from Nov 2016?
    No, the national polls were generally dead on.  They were certainly within the margin of error. It's when they went to the state sample did they go awry.  With Rasmussen, they are talking to 500 people.  That's quite small.  And they aren't talking to 500 African Americans, rather they probably try to get a subset similar to the population size.  Since blacks compromise 10% of the population, it's possible that only 50 people were polled.  It's instructive that Rasmussen themselves did not even publicize this to my knowledge.  It was not in their summary.  It was the White House or Breitbart that picked it up, likely while picking through the internals.  But you need to be a platinum member to see how many blacks were sampled.  Shockingly that wasn't blasted from the Twitter handle.  
    Okay let's forget 2016, I didn't mean to bring up a sore subject or distract from the point...aren't all polls conducted within 1. 48 hours and 2. Sampling 500-1000 participants?
    You're missing the point.  The poll is not designed to capture a statistically significant sample of AAs. The poll is attempting to reflect the population.  That's why it's weighted for Democrats, Republicans, women,  AAs, etc.  But you can't read each of those subgroups and draw conclusions from them.  For a poll to measure AA support of trump,  it would have to be a stand alone poll of 500 to 1000 with its own subs. Like I said earlier,  because AAs make up 10%, they may have talked to as few as 50 people.  And if the rate of voting is lower than the population as a whole,  the number would be even smaller.  Therefore you cannot draw conclusions from these numbers.  This is basic statistics. And again,  likely why Rasmussen hadn't said a word to my knowledge.  
    Your president thinks you're stupid and lies to you everyday.  This is just another example. 
      
    aren't all polls conducted within 1. 48 hours and 2. Sampling 500-1000 participants?
    Too many words for you to digest?
    I thought they were simple questions, I even numbered them for you.
    I cannot take this discussion any further until those are answered.
    Is it not prudent to compare rasmussan to other more legitimate or generally accepted polls?
    I'm trying to discern which polls I should trust and which I should write off as propaganda. 
    Are you that obtuse? The questions aren't relevant to why the conclusion being trumpeted is false.  Rasmussen is a daily tracking poll that is designed to trace the OVERALL approval rating of the president, not that of subgroups.  There's nothing wrong with their methods,  although I think they have always oversampled Republicans,  that's why they are always look favorable to Republicans.  But you can't draw conclusions from the crosstabs, and that's likely what the president's team did. 

    I'm trying to help you understand but you're being dense. 
    Surprised?
    Is it me? Am I being unclear?  I'm not hyping one poll over another here.

    If Trump is so racist then why are black voter number in support of Trump continuing to go up? Weird. Approval rate for Trump among black voters is up to 36% (from 19% on this day last year).

    Hey I'm just curious about where in that link does it say that black approval rating is at 36% on the daily tracking poll.  I read the link, don't see it.  It's important because Rasmussen only surveys 500 people a day, on a rolling three day basis.  It's important to understand the MOE specific to blacks in the polls.  How many did the pollsters talk to?  It could have been very low and therefore a statistical anomaly.  Since you are posting this, I'm sure you read through the details.  Help a brother out.

    I think that as usual, whether intentionally or not (my vote is for the former - you seem to care not about anything but introducing skepticism), you have completely misunderstood mrussel.

    His comment was about how a small sample size introduces error rate, how the poll's purpose is on general population (not subset) conclusions, how no insight is given to the percentage of AA within the sampling, and yet a conclusion is provided about AAs.

    You don't need to know fuck-all about any other poll to write this conclusion from Rasmussen off.

    And to put a finer point on it, Rasmussen never even drew the conclusion.  It seems obvious to me that someone in the white house read the cross tabs and drew their own conclusions.

    OP got owned on this one, lol. I can't believe anyone would actually believe those false poll numbers, no matter where they saw them or how some jerk fluffed the poll. That poll result just seemed immediately and completely unbelievable/ridiculous to me. I mean seriously, I've got a bridge to sell to anyone who would buy that Trump has that much support from Black America.

    Have these simple questions been answered yet?
    Aren't all polls conducted within 48 hours? Don't most polls sample 500-1000 participants?

    I'm trying to figure out how Rasmussen polls are different (anomalies) compared to other polls.

    At this point it doesn't matter, the real question is, do I trust exit polling? All this meaningless blabber can and will be answered in 27 months via exit polling. That's assuming of course we can trust exits.

    To reiterate:

    mrussel's comment was about how a small sample size introduces error rate, how the poll's purpose is on general population (not subset) conclusions, how no insight is given to the percentage of AA within the sampling, and yet a conclusion is provided about AAs. mrussel did not aspire to compare Rasmussen to any other poll (that was purely you), he simply established that Rasmussen's process is improper.

    This thread had a very clear premise: based on Rasmussen's poll, black voters are favouring Trump. Since Rasmussen's poll's general population conclusions shouldn't be applied to black voters since they won't fit to a statistically significant degree, black voters can't be concluded to be favouring Trump. 

    I don't really care if you trust exit polling - like everything you've posted on here, it has little to nothing to do with the topic at hand.

    Who the fuck cares if you trust exit polling.  If you don't, then wait an hour when the final returns are in.  My God, you can't possibly be this dense.
