Why don't we DU our OWN poll on Biden's Approval?

People obviously are here to be anonymous, but it would be a great thing if you could get post cards and put on the back the message .....

I APPROVE OF JOE BIDEN. No pollsters have called me, so they didn't know that.

Or whatever you want to say.

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington, DC 20500


OR ... Email https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/


CAN WE GET HIM 1 MILLION APPROVALS?

1. And what would this accomplish?

First, the President’s campaign team and the DNC do their internal polling.

Second, self-selecting poll responses say nothing about what the aggregate opinion of the public is.

Third, President Biden doesn’t need to “feel good” about people supporting him.

4. 1 million approvals is something.

It would make me feel better, because I don't get polled about whether I approve of him or not.


You don't want to do it. Don't.

You don't need to piss on my post though.


Just move along.

5. Thanks

It is completely informal and some people think a waste of time, energy because the REAL POLLSTERS know better.


Thing is, this is just a point made.


A bunch of these polls have samplings that are ridiculous.

100 polled

And post results it on Twitter.

12. Hey, it would be about as scientific as Elon's TFG poll

He couldn't argue with that logic.

16. I'm less about the science of polling as about sheer numbers. More than 81 Million voted for BIDEN

Polls are snarky at times and trying to prove something, so the questions can misdirect.

Some of these polling samples are 100 people.

The current population of the United States of America is 335,633,943 as of Wednesday, November 23, 2022
https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/us-population/


STATISTICALLY SPEAKING what are the odds we can find 1 Million people out of 81 Million to say yes?

I'm not a statistician, so I really don't know. But on a gut level it feels attainable.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_United_States_presidential_election
The election saw the highest voter turnout by percentage since 1900,[10] with each of the two main tickets receiving more than 74 million votes, surpassing Barack Obama's record of 69.5 million votes from 2008. Biden received more than 81 million votes,[11] the most votes ever cast for a candidate in a U.S. presidential election.[12]

18. I think I'm in love. Great stats!

Pretty all that we need to know. He'll win again. Stay the course.
Nice to meet you.
Happy Turkey Day.

7. I belong to yougov been with

Them for years since they were polling point. At least 15 yrs. They ask me all the time what I think of Joe how he is doing. I always say great. But I wonder about how they pick who does the polls. They obviously know I am a very liberal Democrat because I have answered that way for decades. So they could go anyway they want.

8. It certainly hurts nothing to send a happy note to the White House, but it would be more

akin to a testimony than a poll. Frankly, I don't see it as a bad idea. Trump got his "love letters" from Kim, maybe Biden could feel good with a million love letters from the people. Besides that, the Post Office needs the business.

11. LOL as long as DeJoy doesn't feel threatened.

We should be ok.

Can't hurt, might help.

It just pisses me off that a President who will go down in history as DOING SO MUCH is getting raked in the fake polls.

15. We got friends.

We're connected in communities.

We can pass on the idea to Truth Out, Huffington Post, Meidas Touch. If they take the ball and run, good.

I am going to get some postcards made up. Go door to door. I was block leader at one time.

The park building where we vote is active.

It's my goal.

You can help if you want to.

20. Just lost my job. It will be a bit.

Been donating to Warnock when I see a 300X or more match.

AND I gotta ask DU Admins if they will give me back my actual post count. I've been here since the GW days. Pretty sure I was past 10,000 posts at some point. I got off for a bit during Obama years and checked on my life a bit more.

When I came back my profile was there, but none of my posts. That's ok. I just want the count and real start date back if I'm paying for it. IF you know what I mean. It happened to a lot of people, so I'm not mad or anything.

It's just a way for me to feel I can ask for those things.
