The man tasked with reelecting President Donald Trump in 2020 lashed out at The Washington Post and ABC News for using polling to quantify the president's unpopularity.


On Friday, the results of a new Washington Post-ABC News poll found 60 percent of Americans disapproved of President Trump's approval rating.

The poll also found 53 percent of Americans have concluded Trump committed obstruction of justice in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and 49 percent of Americans believe Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against the former reality-TV personality.

"Trump has tried to discredit Mueller, discredit Sessions and defend Manafort, the Post's White House bureau chief, Phil Rucker noted. "But our poll found it isn’t working. 63 percent support Mueller investigation. 64 percent say Sessions shouldn’t be fired. 67 percent say case against Manafort was justified."

"The tweets do not appear to be working: clear majorities back Mueller and Sessions, while only 45 percent of Americans approve of Trump's handling of the economy," concluded Washington Post national editor Steven Ginsberg.

Parscale, Trump's campaign manager, simply refused to accept the poll results, claiming they were "total fake news" and a "data scam."

In typical Trump fashion, Parscale even attempted to blame Trump's poor poll numbers on undocumented immigrants.

Here's Parscale's analysis of the poll, followed by the analysis of people who are not on Trump's payroll:
