TRUMP SLUMP? Fox News poll shows president losing to top four Democrats

After a series of unfavorable polls from Fox News' polling unit, President Trump has stepped up his complaints about the network, which he no longer considers a reliable ally.

"Fox is different, there's not question about it", he said, before adding he's the one "calling the shots" on whether there'd be general election debates, according to a transcript of the remarks.

But this doesn't mean the Fox poll is "fake", that it was conducted in bad faith, or that it employed suspect methodology. Trump, as he is wont to do, went off at length on his once-favorite network. New internal polls show them to be the strongest we've had so far!

President Donald Trump lashed out at Fox News after a poll by the network showed him losing to each of the top four Democrats if the election were held today. Juan Williams, then they have the wonderful woman that gave Hillary Clinton the questions. The survey had a three-point margin of error and is consistent with other surveys, which generally show Trump either trailing behind or roughly even with his various potential opponents.

The President was referring to Donna Brazile, the former Democratic National Committee chair, who co-hosts The Five on Fox with Juan Williams.

The survey's GOP pollster, Bill McInturff, said he attributes the dramatic shift to overwhelming opposition among Democratic voters to Trump. And all of a sudden, she's working for Fox.

Despite his misgivings, President Trump did give a shout-out to Fox News faves Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Jesse Wattersand, Jeanine Pirro and "even Greg Gutfeld". Could I have a picture?' And he was 100 percent nice. "Think what they'd be if I got fair media coverage!"

This is not the first time that Trump has attacked Fox when he has perceived the network as being insufficiently favorable to him and his political interests.

"Great cohesion inside the Republican Party, the best I have ever seen".

Bolding added to highlight Trump's self-appointed role as Fox News editor-at-large.
