Sean Hannity questions Trump polling results by his employer, Fox News

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.

  1. It’s harder and harder to tune in and hear Hannity and Carlson decry the likes of CNN and the NYT as their own network shamelessly shoulders its way onto the fake news scene…

  2. Megan Kelly helped destroy FOX by getting rid of the man who helped it grow. He was replaced by a militant feminist leftist. The hosts will either cave into liberalism or be fired. Most will cave for the money like Judge Nappy Head.

  3. Ive only been polled twice, both times between 2016 and now. I always lie to the pollsters, they are fake, so I give them nothing real. I imagine a ton of people do the same thing because they realize have turned into tailored propaganda.

  4. All Fox polls always dramatically over over value Democratic voters as opposed to Republican voters and conflate registered voters to likely voters. That’s why the results are always skewed towards Democrats. The polls are intended to shape public opinion not discover and report it.

  5. I’ve researched this and have known about this oversampling for a long time.

    I’ve often wondered why other pundits haven’t grabbed onto this. Rush Limbaugh eludes to it once in a while.
