(National Sentinel) Fake News Polling: Honestly, we thought more of Fox News than this, but when you’re a network addicted to that ridiculous (and never right) buffoon Karl Rove, this is what you get.
You may recall that the network published a poll over the last 24 hours purporting to show that Republican senatorial candidate Judge Roy Moore is running neck-and-neck with Democratic rival Doug Jones in Deep Red Alabama, a state where Trump won big — 28 points — over Hillary Clinton:
Republican Roy Moore, the anti-Republican establishment candidate, is tied at 42 percent apiece with Democrat Doug Jones in the U.S. Senate race in deep-red Alabama.
A Fox News Poll also finds that among just the 53 percent of Alabama registered voters who are extremely or very interested in the race, Jones has a one-point edge over Moore (46-45 percent).
The special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is December 12.
If that sounds just completely bonkers to you, trust your instincts because it is bonkers. And bogus.
As Breitbart News‘ London managing editor Raheem Kassam points out, the polling data is so skewed and so incredibly tainted that it’s practically worthless:
From the random digit dialing, the tiny sample size, as well as the partisan nature of the pollsters, it should be clear to anyone with half a brain how poor this data is. It’s actually an insult to the Fox News audience that the network would continue to hold this up as reliable.
But wait, there’s more.
As an advisor to the Great America Alliance Andy Surabian pointed out late last night, to believe this poll would be to believe that President Trump only has a +1 favorability rating in Alabama.
How does President Donald J. Trump go from +28 to +1 in a state where he scored a massive victory in less than 10 months?
Answer: He doesn’t.
According to the pollsters, Shaw & Company (R) and Anderson Robbins (D), the Democratic Party is as popular as President Trump in the solidly red state. I know no better response to such nonsense than: LOL.
I said yesterday how these pollsters were just establishment shills, servicing the Bush administration, working with Lindsay Graham supporters, and even assisting John Kerry.
But wait, there’s more.
Daron Shaw — behind the Shaw & Company organization that Fox News almost exclusively uses in partnership with Anderson Robbins — is actually an old pal of Karl Rove.
Rove is one of those GOP establishment-type RINOs who is about as #nevertrump as it gets. Plus, as a long-time political operative, he knows how to skew a poll in a bid to sow doubt among voters who were, at one time, very sure of their candidate choices.
This is beneath Fox News but not beneath Karl Rove because he’s a creature of the DC Swamp.
