Earlier this week, Fox News host Sean Hannity criticized his own network’s polling, and said he agrees with President Trump’s remarks.
The remarks: Hannity argued the Fox News poll was “oversampling” Democrats, adding that the network needs “new methodology because it’s really wrong.”
“New York Times-Sienna College poll shows Trump in a dead heat in battleground states, matched up against the three leading Democratic candidates, Biden, Sanders and Warren,” he said. “And I always say, and I believe—Trump doesn’t poll well, and I don’t know what’s up with the Fox poll.”

The polls: The Fox News poll, which was conducted Oct. 27-30, showed that registered voters prefer presidential candidates Biden and Warren over President Trump, with Trump was trailing Biden 51 percent to 39 percent.
According to the poll, voters would prefer to see Hillary Clinton in office rather than President Trump, with 43 percent to 41 percent.
Trump’s response: President Trump denounced the Fox News poll on Saturday, telling reporters outside the White House,”You’re reading the wrong polls.”
“I have the real polls. The CNN polls are fake. The Fox polls have always been lousy. I tell them they ought to get themselves a new pollster,” he said.
