Gallup To End Daily Tracking Poll On Trump: Is He Due For A Surge?

This may be just a coincidence, or speculation, but you’ve got to wonder. Why would Gallup, one of the nation’s leading polling agencies, suddenly stop taking Trump’s daily numbers? After all, he just won a major legislative victory. Why wouldn’t you want to track  after that?

There are more than just a few people speculating.

The Hill has this:

Gallup on Wednesday announced it will start updating its presidential job approval polls on a weekly basis instead of a daily basis.

“We are making this change largely because the source for these daily data, the Gallup Daily tracking program — made possible by a client-supported commitment to daily interviewing on a wide variety of well-being metrics — is shifting from telephone surveys to reporting mail surveys on a monthly basis,” said the 83-year-old D.C.-based firm on its website.

And they’re reducing the polling scope? Really?

“Gallup remains committed to tracking presidential approval using probability-based, telephone interviewing, but is reducing the sample size from 3,500 to 1,500 U.S. adults per week. As a result, Gallup will aggregate and report presidential job approval each week, rather than daily, beginning on Jan. 8 at 1 p.m. ET,” it continued.

Is this because Trump’s approval ratings are expected to skyrocket as he succeeds in Making America Great Again?People want to know.

Can you blame them for being suspicious?
