Fox News Backstabs Trump

“Trump Criticizes Fox News Over Latest Poll: ‘TRASH!’”

Former President Donald Trump lashed out at Fox News on Thursday following the release of a poll that showed him trailing President Joe Biden nationally for the first time this year.

The Fox News poll indicated that 50 percent of respondents would vote for Biden, while 48 percent would back Trump. This result marks a 3-point improvement for Biden compared to the previous month’s poll, where Trump held a 1-point lead.

In a post on Truth Social, Trump vehemently criticized the poll, calling it “TRASH!” He accused Fox News of using a biased sample, favoring Biden by including more 2020 Biden voters than Trump voters. He referred to President Biden as “Crooked Joe” and dismissed the poll results as skewed.

Trump asserted his strong performance in other polls, particularly in key battleground states like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, where he recently held and planned to hold large rallies. He also accused Fox News of unfairly treating him and his “MAGA” movement, suggesting that the network should replace Paul Ryan and hire a new pollster.

The latest Fox News poll is significant as it marks the first time Biden has reached 50 percent support this election cycle and the first time he has led Trump in a Fox poll since October. When third-party candidates were included, Biden’s lead over Trump narrowed to 1 point, with independents Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West receiving 10 percent and 2 percent support, respectively, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein also at 2 percent.

Among independent voters, a crucial demographic, Biden now leads Trump by 9 points, a notable shift from May when independents favored Trump by 2 points. Republican pollster Daron Shaw noted that Biden’s slight improvements with women and seniors are helping him maintain his standing despite reduced support from younger voters and African Americans compared to 2020.

Additionally, a poll from Emerson College/The Hill published on Thursday showed Trump leading Biden in several swing states, including a 4-point lead in Arizona and Georgia, a 3-point lead in Wisconsin and Nevada, a 2-point lead in Pennsylvania, a 1-point lead in Michigan, and an even race in Minnesota.

The evolving poll numbers highlight the competitive nature of the upcoming election and the significant influence of swing states and key demographics on the candidates’ fortunes.
