With five days until Election Day, Rasmussen Reports’ Thursday edition of its daily presidential approval rating survey reports that 52% of likely voters approve of President Donald Trump’s job performance, whereas 47% disapprove.

The survey, which was sponsored by the conservative news site Liberty Nation, also found that 40% “strongly approve” while 40% “strongly disapprove.”

“Daily tracking results,” according to Rasmussen, “are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis.”

In addition to that, “The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence,” its states.

On the other hand, Gallup, who released their most recent study on Thursday too, instead found his rating to be at 46%. Notably, however, it found that 52% of American adults approved of Trump’s handling of the economy, his strongest subject area. This survey polled 1,018 American adults between October 16 to 27, and it has a 4-point margin of error.

As for why the ended up with different results could be for a whole cornucopia of reasons.

The most likely of these reasons is the fact that both entities employ different strategies than each other in their respective surveys. While Rasmussen only polls likely voters in its daily approval rating surveys, Gallup polls Americans adults in a broader sense.

Their differing political leanings could also be a major factor. Historically, while Gallup generally falls in the political center, though some would argue that it skews more liberal, Rasmussen tends to skew more conservative.

Whatever the true answer might be, the real survey happens Tuesday, November 3.

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
