President Donald Trump on Monday decried “phony polling information” after a recent survey from ABC News and The Washington Post showed his approval rating has dropped below 40 percent.

“ABC/Washington Post Poll was the worst and most inaccurate poll of any taken prior to the 2016 Election,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning after the poll’s release. “When my lawyers protested, they took a 12 point down and brought it to almost even by Election Day. It was a Fake Poll by two very bad and dangerous media outlets. Sad!”

He added, “One of the greatest and most powerful weapons used by the Fake and Corrupt News Media is the phony Polling Information they put out. Many of these polls are fixed, or worked in such a way that a certain candidate will look good or bad. Internal polling looks great, the best ever!”

Trump frequently touts his approval ratings among Republicans, often without identifying the poll or offering sources other than “internal polling,” such as this tweet from Monday morning: “94% Approval Rating in the Republican Party, a record. Thank you!”
The president also frequently dismisses polls from major news sources like the Associated Press, CNN, NBC and Fox News.

He tweeted in August: “Great cohesion inside the Republican Party, the best I have ever seen. Despite all of the Fake News, my Poll Numbers are great. New internal polls show them to be the strongest we’ve had so far! Think what they’d be if I got fair media coverage!”
