Trump fired them because they leaked the information. And quite frankly, they may have *cooked* the statistics as well. If we all recall the polls had Hillary winning over Trump in a landslide as well.

Inaccurate polls appear to be the norm nowadays.

You may not be able to trust polls in general really.

Wrong.  He fired them for giving the bad numbers to MSNBC back in March.  Their own numbers that they were feeding President Trump, and MSNBC, were push polling.

Hmmm ...

He hires someone ... he fires the same someone.

I don't see the point of all this discussion.  It is his decision, regardless of reason.

Do any of you think YOUR boss would give you a reason?  Some may say yes, but the rest would say no ... because the smarmy bastard doesn't have to.

BTW ... isn't DJT the one who brought the phrase "YOU'RE FIRED into everyday lexicon?

Most polling is a joke.  You don't have to look any farther back than '16 when ALL of the polls had Trump losing badly to Hitlery.

This early I wouldn't trust ANY poll.

Yea he hired them and then they leaked info. If they could leak info they probably were anti Trump.

So, you have anti-Trump people working on the polls...not exactly a recipe for the accuracy of those polls.

Bottom line: Polling is not an exact science by any means. There are just too many variables, too many unknowns, too great an opportunity for statistical manipulation in general.

He fired them not because of the results of the poles, but because they proved that they were rats.  They could not be trusted with internal info - so they’re gone.

It certainly seems reasonable to me.
  

The trouble with good ideas is that they quickly deteriorate into hard work....
