Consider the polling generalization in bold in the following report of a recent poll:
“President Trump’s approval rating has fallen in the Hill/HarrisX poll since he said he may “reopen the economy by Easter” despite the coronavirus pandemic spreading through the country. Trump’s approval rating on handling the coronavirus dropped 6 percentage points in a three-day span in the poll. In the Mar. 26-27 survey, 50 percent of registered voters said they approved of the president’s handling of COVID-19, compared to 56 percent saying the same in a Mar. 22-23 survey. ” Read the report of the poll here.
Is the generalization warranted by the poll results? Why or why not?
