“@foxandfriends just really botched my poll numbers, no doubt on purpose,” Trump wrote on his social media app, Truth Social. “That show has been terrible — gone to the ‘dark side.’ They quickly quote the big Turning Point Poll victory of almost 60 points over the number two Republican, and then hammer me with outliers. Actually, almost all polls have me leading all Republicans & Biden BY A LOT.”
“That is a little different than a couple of other polls we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks,” Fox News’s Steve Doocy said. “So it’s like the young people who are activists at that [Turning Point] event like the former president, but looking at these other polls, different answer.”
“If you look state by state, Ron DeSantis is showing tremendous strength in New Hampshire, Michigan, and Florida,” co-host Brian Kilmeade added.
Trump’s post on Truth Social also included a dig at “RINO Paul Ryan,” who is on the Fox Corp. board.
“RINO Paul Ryan, one of the weakest and worst Speakers EVER, must be running the place,” Trump said.
The Fox News coverage comes shortly after the editorial board of the New York Post said that Trump has proved himself to be “unworthy” of another presidential term.
Business Insider referred to the outlet’s op-ed, published Friday, as a “stunning reversal of fortune for Trump.”
