Donald Trump attacks Fox polls showing he is lagging behind Joe Biden in Nevada, Pennsylvania and Ohio
- President Donald Trump attacked Fox News polls Friday after they showed he was lagging Joe Biden in Pennsylvania, Nevada and Ohio
- Of particular concern is Ohio, where former Vice President Trump heads 50-45 in Ohio
- It was the third September poll that Trump was down there for
President Donald Trump on Friday attacked new polls by Fox News in which he left Joe Biden behind on the Nevada and Pennsylvania battlefields – as well as the major Republican breakaway price, Ohio.
The president resumed his long-standing feud with the network’s polling station division on Twitter. It called it “one of the worst polls in 2016.”
‘You were so ridiculously wrong. Fox said they would switch pollers, but they didn’t. You completely overrated the Democrats to the point where a kid could see what was going on. ‘

Then he tapped his hat on his favorite polling station, Rasmussen.
“Rasmussen who was accurate at 52%,” wrote the president.
The youngest Rasmussen has Trump behind Democrat Joe Biden, who leads 48 to 47. “Democratic candidate Joe Biden is barely back on top,” wrote John Rasmussen’s electoral office in his weekly memo.
Of greater concern to the Trump camp are national polls, where the president is lagging behind.
Those polls, released on Thursday, had the former Vice President who headed Trump 50-45 in Ohio. Ohio is a must see for Trump, especially when battling Biden in Florida where the polls have been tight. Trump wore both states in 2016.
The Fox polls showed that Biden is cementing or expanding leads in both Nevada and Pennsylvania. In both states, Biden had a big lead with younger and older voters as well as Hispanics – a major constituency in Nevada.
In a poll by Quinnipiac University in Ohio, Biden came out on top with a statistically insignificant 48 to 47 percent share. Biden’s lead in Ohio averaged 3 percent in all three September polls – including a form of Rasmussen that also lets him down.
