Chairman Emmer: National Pollsters Still Undercount Trump Supporters.

Supporters of President Donald Trump often lie about liking him for fear of being vilified, Minnesota GOP Rep. Tom Emmer told Newsmax TV.

"The problem with these national polls for me is ... that the electorate, voters still are not being forthright with pollsters. They get attacked every time they support the president, every time they support one of the president's policy positions. They get absolutely eviscerated within their small groups," Emmer told Wednesday's "Spicer & Co." "So they come to the point where they do not want to tell you where they're at."

Emmer said national polls are more skewed to Democrats and therefore, not a reliable assessment of popularity for a candidate or party.

"These national polls ... they're weighted primarily to Democrats. They're usually plus four or five on the Democrat side when they're doing these polls," Emmer said.

Emmer said Republican pollsters targeted specific districts, that would give the party a more accurate gauge of voter interest.

"We went to specific districts. We polled in 39 of our 54 targeted districts because we wanted to get a good read and assuming we were right, we want to be able to show our members and obviously, those that are interested in seeing us succeed, that we are not only in the game, we are winning," Emmer said. 

Emmer added, "So when you look at the targeted districts, the districts that are in play and should be in play, Donald Trump has a strong approval on the economy, which remains high at 56%, and the Republicans had a one-point advantage."
