President Donald Trump says the polls have it all wrong, so on Thursday he calculated his own popularity rating: 75 percent.

The Republican began reflecting on his approval numbers with an overnight tweet celebrating a new poll that gave him 50 percent.


"Working hard, thank you!" he wrote on a tweet featuring a huge "50%" superimposed over a picture of Mr Trump clapping at a campaign rally.

The only problem is that the pollsters coming up with that number, Rasmussen, are serious outliers.
