Donald Trump HAS to hire a new pollster in order to get the results he wants, since even Fox News and Rasmussen, the two polls that he has always cited as "honest and trustworthy" (i.e. biased in his favor) now are showing the same 55-60% levels of disapproval by voters as the "lying MSM"!

Wonder which one of his kids he'll hire to produce "reliable" poll numbers for him? Ivankapoll? Ericask? "DonnyDo"?

I know - if he'll just stop pretending she doesn't exist, - "TiffanysTruth"!

Laughable little Sociopath, isn't he?

Trump is fucking laughably narcissistic. Pissed off no polls show him favor, he's going to hire favor....basically. Maybe his polling is bad because he sucks super bad at being President?
