.@Fox News Polls are always bad for me. They were also against Crooked Hillary. Something weird is happening at Fox. Our polls show us that we are leading in the 17 states of Swing. For the record, I did not spend 30 hours with @abcnewsbut rather a tiny fraction of that. More fake news @BretBaier

Fox News on Sunday released a new poll that showed Trump was ranking behind five Democratic presidential candidates in hypothetical clashes for 2020. The survey showed that the former vice president Joe BidenJoe BidenBiden calls for equal pay for the US women's football team Biden calls for equal pay for the US women's football team Yang: Standing next to Biden on the debate scene, would help strengthen the recognition of the name MORE led Trump by 10 points.

And Mayor Pete Buttigie, mayor of South Bend, Indiana – were also surveyed before Trump, although inside the error margin of the investigation.
A Quinnipiac poll released last week also showed that Trump was behind a number of Democratic candidates, including Biden 13 points.
Trump has repeatedly downplayed the results of a recent poll on his election prospects for 2020 last week. The president had tweeted earlier Monday that "fake polls" were showing it behind the 2020 Democrats, calling them "Motley Crew".
"We look really good, but it's too early to focus on that," he said. "A lot of work to be done! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"
Trump is known for having a cordial relationship with many Fox News personalities and has appeared on the network more than any other. But he has increasingly criticized for his campaign coverage, especially when he chooses to cover 2020 Democrats.
"Fox is turning more and more to the side of the losers in the cover of the Dems," he said, adding, "They have forgotten the people who brought them there."
