‘Something Weird Is Happening At Fox News’: Paranoid Trump Thinks Fox News Is Starting To Flip On Him
President Donald Trump lashed out at Fox News on Monday for releasing a new poll conducted by the right-wing network showing him losing to multiple 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. “Something weird is happening at Fox News,” Trump said in an angry tweet.
Fox News released a poll that showed Trump trailing five Democratic presidential contenders in hypothetical 2020 match-ups. The survey showed former Vice President Joe Biden leading Trump by 10 points.
The survey also showed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) carrying a 9-point lead in a hypothetical head-to-head match-up. Three other Democratic candidates — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg — also polled ahead of Trump, within the survey’s margin of error.
A Quinnipiac University survey released last week also showed Trump trailing a number of Democratic contenders, including Biden by 13 points.
Trump has repeatedly downplayed recent polling of his 2020 election prospects in the last week. The president tweeted earlier Monday that “only fake polls” showed him behind 2020 Democrats, referring to them as a “Motley Crew.”
“We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that,” he said. “Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
The new remarks from Trump came just a day after news surfaced that his campaign had cut ties with some of its pollsters following a leak of internal surveys that showed Trump trailing Biden in multiple key states.
He said in May that Fox News host Chris Wallace was “wasting airtime” by hosting a town hall with Buttigieg.
“Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems,” he said, adding, “They forgot the people who got them there.”
Take a look at the poll results and Trump’s response below.

.@FoxNews Polls are always bad for me. They were against Crooked Hillary also. Something weird going on at Fox. Our polls show us leading in all 17 Swing States. For the record, I didn’t spend 30 hours with @abcnews, but rather a tiny fraction of that. More Fake News @BretBaier
