Fox News' Brian Kilmeade pushes back against White House and says Fox pollsters 'do a great job.'

Trump campaign spokesman Hogan Gidley on Friday called polling from Fox News showing Donald Trump behind Joe Biden "fake," prompting a quick rebuke from Fox host Brian Kilmeade.

Gidley alleged that Fox's pollsters "oversample Democrats," echoing allegations made by Trump, his administration, and his reelection campaign.

"I know the people who do the polls. They don't do a fake, they do a really good job," replied Kilmeade.

The exchange was unusual, as the conservative Fox News continues to be one of Trump's most stalwart allies.

Recent polling by Fox has shown Joe Biden with an 8-point national lead over Trump among registered voters. Fox's polling also shows Biden ahead of Trump in key swing states such as Michigan, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania. Fox's polls are in line with other national polls showing a consistent Biden lead.

From the July 24 edition of "Fox & Friends":


HOGAN GIDLEY: You touched on some polls. Most of those are fake, I'll be honest, they oversample Democrats.

But let's also talk about another instance here. We've had more than 1.1 billion views across our social media platforms for Donald Trump. He's not even really on those social media platforms all that much. Joe Biden, however, comes out the other day for a Q-and-A, he promotes it, he's on camera, and he has 19 people watching it at one time. I think 17 of those were network news anchors and reporters just trying to figure out how to donate. The other two were staffers.

The fact is, the enthusiasm, the excitement is all on our side, and we know this. Our supporters will stand through rain, sleet, snow, hail, and crawl across broken glass to vote for Donald Trump. Joe Biden's supporters won't even click on a link to watch him do a Q-and-A. It's absolutely embarrassing. We have the momentum, we know we're going to do well in November.

BRIAN KILMEADE, Fox News: I just, I say, I know the people who do the polls. They don't do a fake, they do a really good job. They might not be accurate in the end, I don't know, but they do a great job —

GIDLEY: Well doesn't accuracy determine - I know the people are great, but doesn't the accuracy determine how great it is?

KILMEADE: I'm not saying they're Nostradamus, but I'm just saying their math, and they're professionals, so I just - don't call the Fox News pollsters fake.

GIDLEY: Of course. Well, the methodology's flawed, at the very least, how's that?

The WORST President in American history.  A complete fraud, a total con man. His hatred for America is palpable. What a vile human being.  What a treasonous snake.  His time is almost up.

Dishonest Donald is the actual President, he's just never been Presidential and doesn't have the mental facilities to actually be worthy of such a title. Being elected to a position does not in any way prove someone is capable of doing the job they were elected to. Disgusting dirty Donald is such an incompetent moron few patriotic Americans would consider him "their" President even though legally he does hold the title. Thankfully, he will be relieved of his poorly administered duties this coming January and patriotic Americans can breathe a sigh of relief.

Then it is extremely silly to say he is a fake President, isn't it?

Why perpetrate a lie?

Why perpetrate a lie?

It's not a lie if someone is intending the word "fake" of which the definition includes "sham" which can mean:

"a person who pretends to be someone or something they are not."
"he was a sham, totally unqualified for his job as a senior doctor"
If a captain of a ship is mentally compromised, runs the ship into a reef and then abandons the crew to save his own skin do you think any of the crew really consider him "captain"? Was he truly "captain" material? Of course not, he was an unqualified moron who, through nepotism or dumb luck, was awarded a position far above his abilities.

Dumb Dishonest Donald the Undeserving is the President of the United States. I am an American citizen. I accept that a minority of Americans chose to elect a completely incompetent moron as President and I can do nothing about it until the next election which thankfully is coming soon when this brainless dumb fuck criminal get's kicked out of the oval office and then picked up by authorities and prosecuted for his many crimes. It will be very satisfying to watch, though I doubt any of his supporters will admit they were ever wrong no matter how much he is exposed [Deleted]

Not at all, it's a fact I've accepted since day one. It's never changed his qualification so he's just as incompetent today as he was when he was inaugurated. He's only become more of an embarrassment to patriotic Americans as each day goes by.
