Sean Hannity Attacks Fox News' Unfavorable Trump Poll: 'They Need New Methodology Because It's Really Wrong'

Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday claimed that President Donald Trump "doesn't poll well," before then attacking his own network's polls over unfavorable results for the president.

During a segment on Premiere Radio Network's The Sean Hannity Show, Hannity accused Fox News of sampling too many Democrats for their polls.

"New York Times-Sienna College poll shows Trump in a dead heat in battleground states, matched up against the three leading Democratic candidates, Biden, Sanders and Warren," he said. "And I always say, and I believe—Trump doesn't poll well, and I don't know what's up with the Fox poll."

"I look at their poll, I'm like, okay, you're sampling—oversampling Democrats by eight points. I'm like—some outside company they hire, I'm like, okay, they need new methodology because it's really wrong," he added.

According to a new Fox News poll, released on Sunday, voters would prefer to see Hillary Clinton win the 2020 election over Trump, and she hasn't even announced a bid for the race. In a head-to-head between Clinton and Trump, the poll showed that 43 percent of respondents said they would vote for Clinton, compared to just 41 percent for Trump. Five percent indicated they would not vote at all and nine percent chose "other."

Despite Clinton being favored over Trump, the 2016 Democratic nominee was still behind the three 2020 Democratic frontrunners, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, all of whom beat the current Republican president in a head-to-head with greater margins than Clinton.

The hypothetical matchup shows Biden ahead of Trump by 12 points, with 51 percent of respondents saying they would vote for the former Vice President if the election was held today, compared to only 39 percent that say they would back Trump.

Warren and Sanders also lead Trump by a smaller difference.

According to the poll, 49 percent of respondents said they would choose Sanders in a matchup, while 41 percent said they would support Trump. The poll also showed that 46 percent said they would back Warren, and 41 percent said they would vote for Trump.

Despite losing to all three Democratic frontrunners, Trump tied with South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a second-tier Democratic candidate, with both pulling in 41 percent in a head-to-head match up.

The poll sampled 1040 registered voters by phone between October 27-30, 2019.

Although Clinton has not indicated that she will run, Trump last month mockingly suggested that she should enter the 2020 race. "I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren," the president tweeted on October 9. "Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting 'C' Subpoena!"

In response, Clinton jabbed back: "Don't tempt me. Do your job."
