Fox News STABS Trump In The Back

Are they trying to ruin Trump’s chances in 2020?

On Thursday, Fox News released the results of a poll conducted on 1,013 registered voters between August 11 – 13. According to the poll, each one of the top four Democratic presidential candidates would defeat President Trump in the 2020 election if it were held today.

The survey asks: “If the 2020 presidential election were held today, how would you vote if the candidates were…”

  • Joe Biden (50%), Donald Trump (38%)
  • Bernie Sanders (48%), Donald Trump (39%)
  • Kamala Harris (45%), Donald Trump (39%)
  • Elizabeth Warren (46%), Donald Trump (39%)

The survey also asked about favorability. While all four top Democratic candidates are performing well, President Trump’s favorability rating is underwater at 42% “favorable” versus 56% “unfavorable.” The only Democratic candidate whose favorability comes close to negativity is Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-CA) at 41% “favorable” and 40% “unfavorable.”

Since November of 2016, when Trump’s net favorability was -22 in the Fox poll, his ratings have bobbed up and down, usually moving between the lower to mid-40s.

The survey also asked: “How satisfied are you with the way things are going in the country today – are you very satisfied, somewhat satisfied, not very satisfied or not at all satisfied?” A combined 40% said they are “very” or “somewhat” satisfied, while a combined 59% said they are “not very” or “not at all” satisfied.

The Fox News poll isn’t the only one predicting a Trump loss if the election were held today. According to the RealClearPolitics average, the president would lose to Biden by approximately 8.6%, Sanders by 5.6%, Warren by 3.2%, Harris by 2.2%, and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg by 0.3%.

Despite current polling numbers indicating a win for the Democrats on November 3, 2020, recent history tells us that when it comes to Donald Trump, nothing is out of the realm of possibility.

In the months leading up to the 2016 general, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was consistently riding above President Trump in every major poll. While there were certainly outlier firms that appeared to have their finger on the pulse of real American voters, a vast majority of polling organizations showed Clinton with a lead of between 2% and 7% in the two weeks prior to the election.

Technically, on a votes-cast, popular vote basis, the polls were correct. Of the approximately 128.8 million votes cast for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in the 2016 general election, 51.1% went to Clinton while 48.8% went to Trump – the difference of 2.3% being nearly identical to the RealClearPolitics polling average of 2.1%.

It’s also wise to remember that while polls are a useful metric by which we can measure enthusiasm for political candidates, they should not be taken as gospel, and are merely a representation of a moment in time. Perhaps more importantly, as it pertains to this poll in particular, the open nature of the Democratic field may have an impact on voter excitement that could dampen over time, or as a single Democratic candidate remains standing to face President Trump in the 2020 general election.

    This Doesn’t sound like a poll. It sounds like a fabrication of Anti Trumper RINO Paul Ryan who destroyed the Republican Congressional majority and now sits on the Fox Board at the pleasure of the two anti American Whahbist Saudi Princes whose money dominates the Fox broadcasting.

      Oh Boy, how the truth hurts. Farmers are being choked because of the tariffs.
      We are on the brink of a recession .
      Products are costing Americans more and more.
      The Country is more divided than ever.
      Is it any wonder that trump’s favor ability is so low.

        How about some real truth:
        Farmers have lost not a cent due to tariffs and in the long run will benefit.
        The economy is booming despite the leftist lies proclaiming the opposite.
        Unemployment is down and wages are up while inflation remains low.
        Obama the divider and his leftist, socialist friends are the primary creators of the chaos that is dividing the country.
        Trump’s popularity is higher than ever and fake news is fake news whether it comes from The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, or Fox News.

    We have all noticed a change in FOX. They are not quite as bad as CNN but they are no longer a reliable conservative source. I guess whoever is running them is just a disgusting radical liberal. There is a whole list of creepy liberals that constantly appear on the programs. The Media is purposely silencing us conservatives and keep feeding people their insane liberal garbage. Shame on Fox. Now we only have one decent station left and that is OAN One America News, but it can only be seen on AT+T cable maybe on direct TV also. Comcast and dish do not have it. It is privately owned and not as biased as these other networks. You might also check out NEWSMAX and watch Bill O’Reilly that is still conservative.

    I have never let others, regardless of who or what, decide for me for whom to vote!!! All the stupid wasteful debates mean nothing to me. From the beginning I already know who my candidate of the party I registered to vote —you have to be of unsound mind to do otherwise—IDIOTS!!!!!!!

    It appears that the “poll” was conducted in solid “blue” areas since no one with any intelligence would vote for those four clowns. Biden doesn’t know where he is or even “when” he is most of the time, Harris and Warren are total frauds as well as total idiots, and Bernie wants to recreate the old USSR in the USA.

    FYI the entire poll is reflective of the paramaters of the poll questions. depending on how the poll was crafted it obviously can be manipulated by the same parameters to predict an outcome. Just in case anyone wants to know my field of study & expertise is psychology and logic and statistics. i view most of these polls as corrupt due to the nature of the questions as constructed.I can make up a poll to get any result I want by manipulation of a few key words.

    I am not happy with Fox News, they have become the same as the MSM. The new bosses of Fox are liberals of the highest degree, just like CNN.

    It was said that the man who owned Fox, his boys were taking over and they were leftisT,So this does not surprise me at all but all I have to do is remember one thing! Remember that all you have to do is look at all of trumps rallies and how they swell with the amount of people that’s there that tells your volumes as the media continues to lie just like they did for Hillary! If the election board rig with illegal aliens and dead people by the communist a.k.a. Democrat party and there pimps the one world order billionaires, they wouldn’t even exist in this country.

    Well the Murdoch children are rabid liberals after all. They no doubt look forward to turning FOX into another CNN after Rupert gives up the reins.

      Who in their right mind would poll like If the election were today who would you vote for. Only left wingers. They poll dems 2-1 to independents and republicans never polling Trump supporters. This smells exactly like 2016. The polls are crap. Never has a republican polled better than a democrap. The MSM is 90% democrat. They poll way more dems than repubs. Besides when it counts all the Trump voters will be there to reignite TDS. This time Trump will take at least 40states, some who went Clinton in 2016. Will those people who now have jobs and real optimism actually vote for socialism? Not going to happen. The dems will have millions of illegals voting again but Trump will win 375-400 electoral votes this time. What policies do the socialists have to benefit all Americans. Their policies will destroy all the economic gains we have made under Trump. Middle class will be destroyed and the State will have al the power. Any true free person will have none of it. Forget these ridiculous polls. Trump will win in a landslide. Much to the chagrin of the socialists. Let’s all wait for the only poll that counts after election in Nov 2020. MAGA!!! 2020

    Polls mean nothing these days and certainly not since 2015 /2016. Sure Pollsters will say they “corrected” the problems that skewed the results but I don’t really think that is absolutely correct. The axiom in data processing has always been “garbage in / garbage out”. For instance, most Trump Supporters I know, myself included, are part of the “silent Majority” understanding that most of the time it is very dangerous to outwardly show our support. Maybe Pollsters should believe less in their calculated lies and trust their senses more by how Trump packs into stadiums all of those “brainwashed zombies [AOC]”.
