The National Republican Congressional Committee did not share internal polling data that showed former President Donald Trump has weak numbers in key battleground districts at a retreat for House Republicans in April, two people familiar with the presentation told The Washington Post. The NRCC staffers reportedly held back the information even when a member of Congress asked them directly about Trump's support.

The Post later obtained the full polling results and reports that Trump's unfavorable ratings were 15 points higher than his favorable ones, and nearly twice as many voters had a strongly unfavorable view of him than those who had a strongly favorable one. In those same districts, President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were both more popular than Trump, the Post notes.

It reportedly wasn't the first time this has happened — Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) told colleagues that Republican campaign officials had also glossed over poor Trump polling during a retreat for ranking committee chairs in March, per the Post.
The GQP is lying about Trump's "win" in November 2020 and lying about Trump's popularity. Yet, they're more than happy to make the twice-Impeached ex-POTUS the Leader of their Party

What a bunch of dumbasses. smile

Withholding bad polling information from Trump doesn't surprise me. When your boss has an iron grip around your balls and is basically a despot, one doesn't want to pass on unfavorable information. I don't have any district by district information. But just prior to the election in November, nationally, likely voters, 33% had a very favorable view of Trump, 51% a very unfavorable view. Question 89A. 10% also had a somewhat favorable while 5% a somewhat unfavorable giving Trump a 43% total favorable/56% unfavorable nationwide.

YouGov polling is public and available to one and all to include Trump. All one had to do was pull it up.

Biden, question 89B had a 30% very favorable to a 37% very unfavorable, but his somewhat favorable was 22% and his somewhat unfavorable was 9% for a total favorable of 52% vs. 46% unfavorable.

I never had any doubt Biden would win. That was reinforced when I looked at independents and saw that 53% of independents had a very unfavorable view of Trump. That told me 53% of independents wouldn't vote for Trump, either they'd vote for Biden or third party, but not Trump. FYI, 36% of independents had a very unfavorable view of Biden. So that 36% wasn't going to vote for Biden.

With the GOP the smaller of the two major parties, I knew they weren't going to win with Trump as Trump and company had to win the independent vote or lose the election.

I expected Biden to win by 5 points, perhaps a bit more. But the 4.4 point win was close enough to my expectations. These polls always have a margin of error of plus or minus 3 points.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

Locked out of Facebook, marooned in Mar-a-Lago and mocked for an amateurish new website, Donald J. Trump remained largely out of public sight this week. Yet the Republican Party's capitulation to the former president became clearer than ever, as did the damage to American politics he has caused with his lie that the election was stolen from him

Which begs the question: How can any rational person believe that Trump actually won re-election? Either these people can't analyze their way out of a paper bag - or - they know "The Big Lie" is a lie and they're going along with it which says something about their own lack of morals.

Hmm
