In the latest presidential polls of Republican voters, Trump was at 36% in the Morning Consult Poll, 33% in the Zogby Poll and 26% in the Fox News Poll. Trump has been polling at 30 percent or higher for the last few weeks so how is it that the Fox poll has Trump down in the mid-20s?
Perhaps, Rupert Murdoch of Fox News is still out to get Trump. The Fox News poll is almost certainly fake and clearly a slap in the face to Trump. Remember their fake focus group of “ordinary Americans” who mostly hated Trump after the first debate. Maybe they polled them. This wouldn’t be the first time Fox has made an elaborate attempt to try to hurt Trump.
An article on Politico.com notes “Citing unfair treatment, Donald Trump said Wednesday that he is not going to appear on any Fox News shows ‘for the forseeable future,’ reigniting a feud that has heated up and cooled throughout the summer.”
“‘@FoxNews has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future,’ Trump tweeted at mid-day on Wednesday.”
I’m sure this likely polling fraud at Fox News was the last straw for Trump.
Trump brought in 24 million viewers for the first debate, which was held on Fox News. A normal viewing audience for Fox is about 1.7 million viewers.
Trump brought in 23 million viewers for the second debate, which was held on CNN News, which normally gets half a million viewers.
If Trump boycotts Fox News for the duration of the election, it will be devastating for Fox’s ratings, but Rupert Murdoch has ordered his employees at Fox to attack Trump, to misquote him and to treat him unfairly. This probable poll fraud is one more swipe at Trump. It’s good to see Trump fighting back, and Fox is exposing themselves as a fake conservative news channel, that has an open borders agenda, which is why they are so dead set against Trump.
