Popular Fox News evening host Sean Hannity on Monday questioned polling results from his employer showing President Trump losing to the top four Democratic presidential contenders next year.
Hannity questioned the polling results on his radio program.
“New York Times/Siena College poll shows Trump in a dead heat in battleground states, matched up against the three leading Democratic candidates, [Joe] Biden, [Bernie] Sanders, and [Elizabeth] Warren,” he said. “And I always say, and I believe — Trump doesn’t poll well, and I don’t know what’s up with the Fox poll.
“I look at their poll, I’m like, OK, you’re sampling — oversampling Democrats by eight points. I’m like — some outside company they hire, I’m like, OK, they need new methodology because it’s really wrong,” Hannity noted.
The Fox News poll showed that a large majority of Democratic primary voters (80 percent) said they believe it is extremely important their candidate can beat Trump, while just 42 percent are concerned the Democratic nominee shares their political views.
The poll revealed that in hypothetical head-to-head matchups, Biden, Sanders, and Warren come out ahead of Trump, as did Hillary Clinton, who, so far, is not running.
Polling all through the 2016 presidential election cycle had Clinton ahead of Trump, including Fox News polling, which reportedly had Clinton up by 4 points heading into Election Night.
