Donald Trump's relationship with and view of pre-election polls has been inconsistent, according to a new report.

ABC News' Tom Liddy writes that when a particular poll shows Trump either leading Democrat Hillary Clinton or making up ground on her ahead of next week's presidential election, he touts and praises it. Polls that show Clinton leading, on the other hand, are seen as "rigged" and "phony" by Trump and his campaign.

In the wake of last week's news that the FBI is taking another look at the case involving Clinton's private email server, many polls are trending Trump. And with that, Liddy writes, Trump's talk of "rigged" polls has largely gone away.

The RealClearPolitics polling average currently shows Clinton leading by less than 2 points. Many polls have the race either a dead heat or Trump leading.

Trump has often used polls to get his message across, which is that Washington is corrupt and the left-wing media is biased toward Democrats. He wrote off polls that showed Clinton won the debates and praised others that pegged him as the winner.

A new Rasmussen poll shows Trump with a 3-point lead nationally. Conversely, the latest New York Times/CBS News survey gives Clinton a 3-point lead — down from 9 points in mid-October.
