Fox News aired a report Sunday alleging that for the first time, GOP operatives are raising the possibility that President Trump may forego reelection if his poll numbers “don’t rebound.”

The report from senior correspondent Charlie Gasparino, political reporter Andrew O’Reilly, and producer Lydia Moynihan drew a sharp rebuke from the Trump campaign, which called it “the granddaddy of fake news.” It seems likely to reignite the president’s combustible relationship with Fox.

Per The Hill:

“It’s too early, but if the polls continue to worsen, you can see a scenario where he drops out,” a GOP operative who asked to remain anonymous told Fox News.

Gasparino also reported that one “major player” within the Republican Party described “Trump’s current psyche as ‘fragile.'”

For his part, Gasparino isn’t convinced.

The Trump campaign pushed back on the report, citing polling from the last election showing then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton with a similar lead in June 2016.

After the 2016 election, anyone who believes polls is nuts.

Has anyone besides me seen the cheat ear piece in Biden’s right ear? That’s how they hope to win debates – whisper in his ear. In 2016, Valerie Jarret stole the debate questions and handed them to Hillary early and she still struggled. Same thing will happen this time – only worse.

I would put the “news” that Trump is dropping out in the same category as the “news” that Trump is Putin’s puppet. Ridiculous, stupid and asinine. Wishful thinking on the Democrats part.

Just like the lie that Mr. Trump really didn’t want to win election in the first place. Same lie, different wrapping.

You are so correct – don’t watch Fox and won’t. You, me and Trump’s millions of Trump fans/voter know Pres. Trump is not a ‘quitter’…. actually this Gasparino just increased his determination. And you are so right-on, Gasparino is a nobody.

Gasparino and Cavuto are self-admitted never Trumpers. With Ryan’s help and the two Rupert’s sons you’l hear less and less of positive DJT news.

BYE BYE FOX NEWS. TUCKER, SEAN AND LOU ARE THE ONLY SHOWS I WATCH NOW. ONE AMERICA NEWS NETWORK IS WHERE TO GO FOR NEWS, NOT LIES AND OPINIONS.
CAVUTO/whom i can’t even look at or tolerate his voice, Gasparino who his a big ego with a small brain, and jedediah bila/weekend person, along with PAUL RYAN/RINO hating trump, have ruined it for me a long time ago. what a shame. i was such a loyal viewer, but i love President Trump, and those that hate him, hate him because THEY ALL HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE, just like the DEMOCRATS. disgusting how corruption becomes a cancer.
