Yesterday, Fox News released a poll showing Donald Trump currently lagging behind every leading Democrat, including Joe Biden, whom the pr*sident trails by 10 points:
Trump trails the Democrat in each of the possible 2020 head-to-head matchups tested and never gets above 41 percent support. At the same time, none of the challengers hits 50 percent.
Biden tops Trump by 10 points (49-39 percent) and Sanders is up by nine (49-40) — both of these leads are outside the poll’s margin of error. Warren has a two-point edge over Trump (43-41), and Harris (42-41) and Buttigieg (41-40) are up by one (within the margin of error).
Needless to say, that didn’t sit well with the Colicky White House Cretin.
For the record … Trump’s internal polling shows him “leading” in 17 swing states because those polls actively attempted to push respondents into the Trump camp.
Aaron Blake of The Washington Post explains:
For example, pollsters will often test how their issues perform by taking an initial head-to-head and then informing the respondent of their candidate’s or their opponents’ positions on something. “What if we told you these Democrats are all socialists who want to ban hamburgers and open the borders to every member of MS-13?” or something like that. That is what [Trump campaign manager Brad] Parscale is referring to when he says “the plan to provide free health care to illegal immigrants results in an 18-point swing toward President Trump.”
So, for instance, if you followed up with “who would you vote for if we told you Donald Trump is lying naked on a ceramic tile floor right now snorting Mexican bath salts through a My Little Pony Silly Straw and giggling maniacally at illegal Swedish scat pornography while slathered head to toe in Moscow prostitute urine?” you might get an 18-point swing in the other direction. Or more.
In other words, the polls Trump is citing are nonsense — and, yes, fake news.
But that’s burying the lede, isn’t it?
If Trump thinks he’s losing Fox News, how far out to the edge will he travel? Presumably Alex Jones will always be there, as will One America News, a gaggle of Baghdad Boobs that have been enthusiastically kissing the great red baboon POT-ASS for some time now.
Then again, Trump and Fox are sure to make up. It’s a love story for the ages, after all.
