While some polls showed Democratic nominee Joe Biden's lead over President Donald Trump narrowing slightly after the controversial Republican National Convention, most signs are showing that Trump's claim that Biden is secretly socialist is proving insufficient.
Conservative network Fox News' own polling shows that Biden leads by nine points in Arizona, eight points in Wisconsin, and four points in North Carolina—with better favorability ratings than Trump among multiple demographics in these states. Trump won all of these states in 2016.
Notably, Biden has twice as much support among suburban women in North Carolina—62 percent to 31 percent. This is despite Trump's racist warning to "suburban housewives" that low-income communities would overtake the suburbs under a Biden presidency.
Fox News had to cover its own polling results, but noticeably sped through them in its segment.
People noticed how rushed the segment was, surmising that the speed was in hopes to conceal the results from the President, a frequent watcher of Fox News.
The President has railed against Fox News' polling before, encouraging his followers to instead watch the far-right One America News Network (OANN).
If Fox was attempting to avoid backlash from the President, the effort didn't work.
People mocked the President's reaction.
