Make Sure You’re Registered to Vote for Trump
President Trump tweeted a broadside at Fox News, accusing the network of promoting allegedly faulty polls showing him behind the leading Democratic presidential hopefuls.
.@FoxNews Polls are always bad for me. They were against Crooked Hillary also. Something weird going on at Fox. Our polls show us leading in all 17 Swing States. For the record, I didn’t spend 30 hours with @abcnews, but rather a tiny fraction of that. More Fake News @BretBaier

The conservative-leaning network published polls showing Trump trailing five Democratic challengers in hypothetical match-ups.
Business Insider reports:
He went on to say he did not spend 30 hours with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos for an interview broadcast in full Sunday night. ABC and Baier both reported that Trump and Stephanopoulos had spent that much time together for the interview.
“More Fake News,” the president wrote in the message directed at Baier.
Fox’s poll published on Sunday said Trump was trailing each of the top five Democratic presidential contenders in hypothetical match-ups and would lose to the Democratic front-runner Joe Biden by 10 points.

It is not clear what Trump meant by “our polls.” Recent internal Trump campaign polling showed him trailing Biden in several crucial states and only narrowly ahead in the traditionally red state of Texas.
The president’s re-election campaign fired three pollsters after someone leaked that data to the media.
