Fox News polls have gone from bad to worse as network’s Leftward shift continues

The network seems hell-bent on chasing away the audience Rupert Murdoch built

By Tank Murdoch

(TNS) You know there is something wrong with Fox News’ polling when the Left begins quoting them to ‘show’ just how unpopular President Donald Trump is.



The trouble is, Fox News polling isn’t very accurate these days and worse, whomever is conducting surveys for the cable news behemoth, they are pulling one of the same old tricks Left-leaning outlets pull: Oversampling Democrats.

Take a recent poll from Fox News allegedly showing that by a +19 margin, Americans want the president removed from office via impeachment.

The trouble is that the result is an outlier — and by a wide margin.

Every other survey in recent weeks shows Americans convincingly do not want the president removed from office.

“In fact, you have to go back to mid-January to find another poll that even puts it at +2, much less +19,” noted Red State, which adds:

How’d they get that result? One of the issues is that the sample came out to 48% Democrat, which is a laughable number given that partisan identification is on a downward trend. In no other survey do 48% of Americans identify as Democrats.

Yet, Fox managed to find that, along with only about half the total number of Republicans. That’s how you end up with a result so wildly out of the average. In fact, the only reason that average is nearly even at “No” +0.6% is because Fox News’ result is skewing things so heavily.

Consistently, Fox News polling is reaching conclusions that aren’t even close to what the rest of the polling world is reaching. That alone should be more than enough to convince the network’s bosses something is amiss.

But perhaps this shouldn’t be such a surprise.

Since old man Rupert turned the network over to his boys, James and Lachlan Murdoch, in July 2015, Fox News has taken a decidedly Leftist lurch.

Impeachment polls since October (here, and here) have regularly shown that more Americans in favor of it, but they have also oversampled Democrats.

Long-time news anchor Shepard Smith is gone after essentially turning on President Trump and Republicans. Another network stalwart, Chris Wallace, is increasingly hostile to the president and Republicans — and obviously so. Ditto for regular contributor and legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano.

The prime-time line-up of Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham remains solidly conservative in perspective, and they are dominating their time slots.

But the daily news programming is certainly trending ‘mainstream,’ as in, the same kind of Left-leaning content every other news network offers.

They give us Sean-Laura-Tucker to keep us watching. Other than that just a glossy CNN. Very deceptive. People think Fox News and think conservatism. Not so.

I’ve started watching them less and less. I’m already disgusted with mainstream media. Fox is the last one to go. I just deleted them off my phone. My go-to sources now are citizen journalists, breitbart, DML and a fantastic site called Whatfinger. I’m sick TO DEATH of the spin.

I quit Fux faggotface news back when they were pumping Jeb and Boobio.

I quit tv, movies, sports, and music too. They’re all dirtbags and perverts. Took all my memorabilia, music, and burned it in the firepit. Done with that crap. I reject it all 100%.

What you have to keep in mind is that the Liberal so-called news services do not offer comment sections as they do not countenance any viewpoints which are not their own.

Haven’t watched FOX in at least 8 years. Don’t miss it one bit.
In fact I don’t watch any “mainstream” news networks.
Kicked Drudge to the curb 4 years ago also, best move I ever made.
I cruise Whatfinger and Independent content creators on YT and I am
better informed than everyone at work. Also doesn’t hurt to know BS
when you see it.

FOX never thought that we would actually check the methodology of their crappy polls. They assumed we were as stupid as democrat voters..

I never thought I’d say this…but the Democrats have a LOT in common with FNC. Both organizations are veering harder and harder Leftward and neither cares that they’re shedding supporters faster than they can count them! It’s astounding. Both organizations can see it, too. I mean…they’re aware that their strategies are failing but simply don’t care to stop it. Either example is like a slow motion movie of the Hindenburg disaster. But no move to extinguish the inferno!

Sick of seeing Trump-hater Wallace as their go-to stooge for impeachment commentary. He’s as much a lefty as swisher Shep was/is. What the fuck are you guys doing?????
