Pollster Richard Baris Rips ‘Flawed’ CNBC Econ Survey Saying Biden - Has 62% Approval

Posted: Feb 20th, 2021 - 5:31 am

Big Data Poll Director Richard Baris slammed a CNBC economic survey arguing that President Joe Biden won an initial approval rating that topped the first ratings of the last four presidents.

CNBC’s recent All-America Economic Survey of 1,000 people claimed that Biden’s leftist agenda won him a whopping 62 percent initial approval rating for his “handling of the economy and for uniting the country.” The result supposedly topped the “first ratings of the last four presidents.” In addition, Biden’s initial rating was “18 points higher than Trump’s.” Baris summed up Biden’s numbers in one sentence: “At this point, there’s no excuse for them to continue to release results derived from methodologies that have repeatedly proven to be flawed.”


Baris pointed to two reasons why CNBC and others are making serious mistakes that completely misrepresent the leanings of the American people. First, “from CNBC to Reuters to Morning Consult, these are opt-in panel polls, most of which are consumer file-sourced panels,” Baris said. “[There are worsening biases in these panels that skew toward a more pro-metro, high interest respondents.” Baris said that he had discussions with his company’s various vendors on the change in panel demographics and concluded that “we're fairly confident that Covid lockdowns played a significant role in the shift in panel participation.”

Baris specifically pointed out how “Zoomers — comprised more of a professional class than previous available respondents — have a lot more time on their hands.”

Secondly, Baris accused pollsters like CNBC of “ignoring textbook response bias even after the election conclusively proved both response and social desirability biases are getting worse.”

Baris dissected the bias issue in great depth:
