Trump's approval rating among black voters is a whopping 3 percent
Just 3 percent of black Americans polled said they approved of Trump's performance, compared to the president's 36 percent approval overall. An overwhelming 93 percent of black Americans, meanwhile, said they disapprove. Those numbers have plummeted, data over time shows; just months ago his approval among black Americans was nearly 20 percent.
Non-white respondents overall largely disapprove of Trump, with 78 percent saying that he's handling the presidency poorly and 19 percent saying he's doing well. Those numbers were on the upswing, but sunk back down to the consistent low marks that Trump has received since entering office. Women also disapprove of Trump at higher rates: Sixty-six percent of women disapprove of his performance, and 54 percent of men agree.
Among white respondents, 45 percent approve of the president, while 51 percent disapprove. Trump's approval ratings are worse than ever among all demographic groups — 60 percent disapproval overall is the highest the Post has ever found.

SOME polls may have been.

Many were not and you know it.

Stop using another members word...
Ironically, all 12 polls that had Clinton ahead turned out to be closer to the final outcome than the poll that had Trump ahead. While that may seem crazy — since Trump, not Clinton, is headed to the White House — it's true. The poll that put Trump ahead (by 2 points) was off by 4.1 points, while polls that gave Clinton the lead were off anywhere from only one-tenth of a point to less than 4 points.
One last look: 2016 polls actually got a lot right
