Donald Trump and his supporters are furious at Fox News.
Fox News got the election completely wrong.
And now Fox News is facing this major crisis now that the election is over.
For the entire Presidential campaign, Fox News fed the media narrative that the race was steady, Donald Trump hopelessly trailed Joe Biden and that Trump was on pace to lose in an historic landslide.
That perception came from the battleground state polls that projected Joe Biden would win handily.
President Trump reacted by criticizing Fox News and demanding they fire their pollster.
It turns out the President was correct.
Fox News polls of battleground states were off by upwards of 12 points in multiple cases.
John Nolte of Breitbart wrote:
Although the poll reaches back to June, Fox News said Trump would lose Florida by nine. Trump won by 3.6 points.
Fox News said Biden would win Pennsylvania by five. The state is gunna be a squeaker and Trump could eventually take it.
Fox News told us Trump would lose Nevada by 11. With almost all the votes in, Nevada is too close to call.
Fox News told us Trump would lose Wisconsin by five. While Trump is going to either demand a recount our outright contest the results, as of now he is down by less than half a point.
Fox News told us Trump would lose Michigan by 12. With 94 percent of the vote counted, Trump is down by less than a point.
Fox News told us Trump would lose Arizona by nine points. With 86 percent of the vote in, Arizona is too close to call.
Fox News also enraged the President and his supporters by prematurely calling Arizona for Joe Biden when hundreds of thousands of votes remained to be counted.
Liberal critics accuse Fox News of being “state TV” and acting like a propaganda channel for Trump.
But that is not true at all.
Beginning with Chris Wallace’s performance moderating the first Presidential debate, the completely incorrect polls and the biased coverage on Election Night, many Trump supporters are wondering if there is any difference in the news coverage on Fox and the Trump-hating fake news CNN?
