New polls out today are very good considering that much of the media is FAKE and almost always negative. Would still beat Hillary in …..

After almost 100 days into his young and troubled presidency, Mr. Donald Trump just delivered another mortal blow to his detractors. According to a shocking poll courtesy of the very fake news and seminal anti Trump Washington Post, The Donald, despite being called as the least popular POTUS in modern times by the same publication he’d still beat Hillary Clinton in the eventuality of a second presidential election held today.
That’s quite shocking from the point of view of a mainstream media outlet, considering the fact that Donald Trump would win this time not only the Electoral College but the popular vote too, with 43% vs 40%.
According to the data, President Trump’s base seems to be sticking with him no matter what, while he’s enjoying a 42% approval rate vs 53% of the poll respondents who are not agreeing with his actions so far.
Despite Donald Trump’s relatively low approval rating, provided you can trust these pollsters who committed one epic failure after another prior to the November 8 election, regardless of the incredibly biased and hostile media coverage of his presidency, he’d still beat Hillary Clinton in an election and that’s quite remarkable considering the source of the poll.
WaPo’s article reads:
The new survey finds 46 percent saying they voted for Clinton and 43 percent for Trump, similar to her two-point national vote margin. Asked how they would vote if the election were held today, 43 say they would support Trump and 40 percent say Clinton.

Moreover, from that same poll: 96% of those who voted for President Trump say it was the right thing to do and only 2% regret it. Also, judging from Washington Post’s uber bias and history of fake news, I’d say the real numbers are probably way higher in favor of Donald Trump.
