Credibility of Fox News On the Line with Poll That Shows Jones Up by 10
Breitbart ^ | 11 Dec 2017 | MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY

Fox News put its credibility on the line when it released a new poll on Monday that shows liberal Democrat Doug Jones leads conservative Republican Roy Moore by 10 points, 50 percent to 40 percent, in tomorrow’s special election for the U.S. Senate in Alabama.

The contrast between the results reported by Fox News and every other recent major poll could not be sharper.

Earlier on Monday, an Emerson Poll was released that shows Moore up by nine points, 53 percent to 44 percent.

The five other most recent polls featured in the Real Clear Politics Average of Polls all show Moore in the lead.

The Fox News Poll released on Monday “was under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R),” and included a respondent sample of likely voters that included 44 percent Republicans, 42 percent Democrats, and 14 percent independents (Republican +2) (see political identification after question 7 here), which significantly oversamples Democrats.

One way to understand the actual voting behavior of Alabamians is to look at the results of the 2016 election in the state. President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by a margin of 28 points, 63 percent to 35 percent.

Not so much FNC, but who they contracted to run the poll, no? I’d read somewhere the turnout model was R+2… widely at variance with the others that showed at least an R+10 turnout.

When Moore wins by ten, how superfluous is FoxNews going to look?

Man, they’ll look absolutely worthless.

I understand Fox News has an agenda, just like CNN, MSNBC. Journalism is dead, in the words of one of their employees. What’s disappointing is that their personalities, with some exceptions, have fallen into lock step with this agenda. OANN is looking better all the time. That being said, there is too much good coming out of FNC for me to turn them off completely. Once Moore wins and this nonsense is over, I’ll go back to Judge Jeanine, Laura Ingraham and my other favorites.

This is written as if Fox has any remaining credibility.They have none.

Any discharges from that sewer are just that.

Why anyone gives credence is puzzling.
