RUSH: To Nashville. This is Bryce, and I’m glad you waited. How you doing, sir?

CALLER: Mega dittos, Rush. It’s an honor to be talking to you.

RUSH: Thank you, sir.

CALLER: My question is, if the preelection polls and the exit polls are wrong, why do we believe the popularity polls of Obama? What was the sampling?

RUSH: Well, you’re talking about his approval numbers?


RUSH: Here’s one theory. When you put Obama’s policies and his agenda on a poll, or, if you ask if people if they think the country’s headed in the wrong direction or the right direction, there’s no question “wrong direction,” two-thirds people say so, and almost as many people oppose the Obama agenda. But then when you ask a separate question and maybe even a separate poll, how would you rate President Obama in his job performance, he gets 53.

Now, my theory is that, if everything’s legit, that result is come by because people refuse to tell a pollster they disapprove of Obama because of the racial component. They simply don’t want the pollster to think that they’re racist. If it’s not legit, then the pollsters are making it up, because it doesn’t fit. I mean, how do you have a president with a 53% approval rating when two-thirds of the people disapprove of everything he’s done?

CALLER: Exactly.

RUSH: That’s your question, right?

CALLER: Yes. Exactly. And most people I know can’t wait for next Friday.

RUSH: Yeah, I know. I know. But look, everybody knows he’s leaving anyway, so if it’s just a question, how would you rate the president’s approval, job performance. Many people think it’s a likability poll, and say, “Hey, he’s a likable guy. I don’t dislike him. He’s dead wrong on everything, but…”

But, look, if you are suspicious that the poll is not right, I’m not gonna try to talk you out of it. The evidence is abundant that the polls have been monkeyed with over the course of this whole campaign. So, if it makes more sense to you that the poll is manufactured in order to make Obama look good, I’m not gonna try to talk you out of it. I’m just telling you I can see 53% of people in a sample saying they like Obama ’cause they don’t want to even get close to saying they don’t like the first black president.

Nobody believes in privacy. They think everybody can violate security, find out who they are, people are scared to death. And even so, it’s only 53. It’s not the 66 that Clinton had. Look, I’m out of time. I gotta ask you real quick, Snerdley will get the details. If you want a new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, tell him, tell him your carrier and the color you want. I’m gonna throw in some of these brand-new wireless AirPods that are one of the greatest things Apple’s ever made.
