Trump Rants About Fox News Polls in Early-Morning Tweets: ‘They Suck’

President Donald Trump has been tanking in the polls over the past few months and the president has been varying his responses to those bottom-scraping numbers. Sometimes, he declares that the polls are fake and at other moments, he’s a bit more blunt. On Tuesday morning, the president woke up and declared of Fox News, “whoever their Pollster is, they suck.”

Trump whined that “from the day I announced I was running for President, I have NEVER had a good [Fox News] poll.” He complained that “[Fox News] is also so much different than it used to be in the good old days” and blasted a few of the voices on the platform, including Shep Smith and Andrew Napolitano.

Trump’s crack-of-dawn tweets seem to be aimed at a recent Fox News poll showing that 51% of Americans want the president impeached and removed from office, while only 40% said that they don’t want to see him impeached. Those figures are up — in July only 42% of respondents said that they want the president impeached and removed.

The Fox poll also found that support for impeachment is up 5 points among Republicans and 11 points among Democrats.

In a later tweet, the president thanked One America News for their “fair coverage and brilliant reporting.” The news outlet is famous for running conspiracy theories and segments that fawn over Trump.

The president seems to be obsessed with his polling numbers. He frequently tweets out polls that show his approval rating above 50%. Of course, those polls are usually from less-than-reputable polling services, including Zogby, which is basically just an online survey and has been termed “the worst pollster in the world” by the number junkies at FiveThirtyEight.

In early October, Trump even tweeted a poll from a far-right website that claimed that 98% of the respondents “stand with President Trump” on impeachment.

Is Hillary still ahead of Trump in the polls? Would hate to see him win over the sickly, inept, foul mouthed, security risk, Saul Alinsky radicalized, military, Secret Service, police, gun and America hating Queen.

He is just ridiculous.

I’m surprised he doesn’t just show results for his facebook poll where you can choose that he is a great or good president. 100% responses were positive… because there was no other option in the multiple choice.
