A few days ago Rasmussen blew the whistle on major U.S polls not being published because they make President Donald Trump look good and Joe Biden look bad.
Last night @donlemon called for the rioting to end, “because it’s showing up in the polling.”
What polling? The media polling after the DNC Convention that was never released over the weekend.
Yes, folks, it exists. You’re just not allowed to see it. https://t.co/yjm1UUdfmf

A few days later they followed up wondering where many of these polls still were.

Finally, we got one poll from Emerson on August 31st:
AND NOW – THERE ARE FIVE
Thank You @EmersonPolling !
It has been 11 days since the end of 1st 2020 national party convention – the DNC on Aug 20th.
In 2016 there were apparently 9 national polls 11 days after the end of 1st national party convention – the RNC on July 21st. pic.twitter.com/KXkcVx74Pb

The Emerson poll found President Trump had his highest approval rating this poll had ever recorded for him.
For the first time since he’s taken office, Trump’s job approval rating is approaching a majority, at 49% approval and 47% disapproval. This is a jump of four points since July, where Trump had 45% approval and 51% disapproval.
It also found that he had gained support from 2016 among black voters:

As of Septemeber 1st, we are still yet to see these polls come out:

So, the question becomes what is being hidden?
We know that the RNC Convention was widely successful.
The RNC outraised Democrats by $6 million.
The RNC Convention was watched by 25 million more people.
147.9M views across TV/digital – 25M more than Biden/DNC.
$76M raised for RNC & @TeamTrump – $6M more than Biden/DNC.#RNC2020 told voters real stories from real Americans who benefited from @realDonaldTrump’s policies – and it clearly resonated! https://t.co/1TlI6MXPBr

It is also important to point out that Democrats have begun changing their strategy since the conventions.
In the beginning, they were claiming that the riots were peaceful.
They have since changed tactics now blaming the riots on President Trump.
Why do this if your internal polls are still showing you doing well?
Of course, you wouldn’t.
Liberal talk show host Bill Maher expressed that he is worried about Trump being re-elected after the RNC convention.
“How much Facebook is controlled by the right wing and how much more of their stories get recirculated, I’m feeling less confident – maybe the convention bump got to me.”@billmaher on Trump’s RNC speech. #TheReidOut pic.twitter.com/kPjPbKtpUE
