Trump Just Released a Poll Asking Americans To Rate His Job… With No Disapproval Option

President Donald Trump is ending the year by releasing an “Inaugural Year Approval” survey that doesn’t permit respondents to disapprove of Trump’s first year in the White House.

The poll, which can be seen on www.donaldjtrump.com, is labeled “Official Presidential Job Performance Poll.” The survey has come under fire for is trying to trick Americans into boosting Trump’s approval rating while sinking Barack Obama’s numbers.

Its first question: “How would you rate President Trump’s first year in office (2017)?” The only answers offered are: “Great,” “Good,” “Okay” or “Other.”

There’s another element of the poll that has some cranky and suspicious: respondents must submit identifying information, including their names and email addresses, raising concerns that the details will be raided for marketing purposes.

The site’s fine print below the form notes that, “by providing your phone number, you are consenting to receive calls and texts, including autodialed and automated calls and texts, to that number from TMAGAC and its participating committees.”

The wording has drawn some smirks and snarks from Twitter users who ridiculed the survey and rejoiced in the opportunity to give unfiltered feedback to Trump in the blank text box marked “Other.”

@jenniezcarr tweeted: “Got this Inaugural Year Opinion Poll in an email from Trump Headquarters BONUS: Can’t submit a response unless you enroll in ongoing texts from Trump FUTURE HEADLINE: Trump’s first year receives 98% approval rating.”

The survey can be found on the Trump/Pence website and is being sent out via email. Similarly, the GOP.com homepage links to the survey.

The White House released a similar poll months ago, asking respondents to rate Trump’s “First 50 days.” That survey included the ability to “disapprove” of the president’s performance in the White House. In that poll, Americans overwhelmingly disapproved of Trump’s job.

This time, however, it’s impossible to “disapprove.” And who can argue with that?
