Trump said he'd praise a CPAC poll if it came out in favor of him, otherwise he'd call it fake
  • Donald Trump delivered a speech at the CPAC conference on Sunday.
  • "Now, if it's bad, I just say it's fake," Trump said of polls he doesn't like.
  • The cynical approach fits Trump's track record, but the admission was unusually frank.
Former President Donald Trump in his speech at the CPAC conservative conference Sunday made a frank admission: that he judges the reliability of poll results on whether he wins them.

If he didn't like the result of a poll he'd call it fake, but if he approved of the result he'd lavish it with praise, he said.


Speaking at the event in Dallas, Trump discussed the straw poll recording the popularity of potential 2024 Republican presidential candidates in the hours before its results came out.

"By the way, you have a poll coming out," Trump said during his hour and a half-long speech. "I want to know what it is. You know they do that straw poll, right?"

"Now, if it's bad, I just say it's fake," Trump said, drawing laughter from the crowd. "If it's good, I say that's the most accurate poll, perhaps ever."
