A recent poll commissioned by Dick Morris shows that Donald Trump “is much more popular than media polls report and his job approval is way higher,” Morris told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview.

“It is astonishing how different this data is from any other recent poll,” Morris told Breitbart News.

The poll’s highlights include the following:

  • 48 percent approve of Trump’s performance in office while 50 percent disapprove. Most media polls, by contrast, place the president’s job approval down between 37% and 42%, far lower than the McLaughlin poll.
  • 71 percent support the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate leaks by public officials to the media. 15 percent oppose.
  • 63 percent  support the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate allegations of pay for play between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department under Hillary and Hillary’s use of a private server for her e mails. 27 percent oppose.
  • Only 35 percent feel Trump was involved in Russian meddling in the election. 25 percent believe Russia did meddle but Trump was not involved. And 21 percent feel Russia did not meddle

The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted by John McLaughlin and Associates between August 26 and August 30 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent.

“It’s like coming in from an alternative reality to read this poll after all the media polls saying Trump is very unpopular, Obamacare is making a comeback, and that voters are worried about Russian meddling,” Morris, the author of Rogue Spooks: The Intelligence War Against Donald Trump, tells Breitbart News.
