Sean Hannity said on his syndicated radio show Tuesday that he agreed with President Trump’s criticism of Fox News polling, arguing it was “oversampling” Democrats.

Hannity, who is also a Fox News host, criticized the polling methodology used by Fox News, calling it “really wrong” compared to other recent surveys measuring the popularity of Trump and Democratic presidential candidates like former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

The article goes on to state the following:

“The New York Times/Siena College poll shows Trump in a dead heat in battleground states, matched up against the three leading Democratic candidates: Biden, Sanders, and Warren,” Hannity 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, ‘OK, you’re oversampling Democrats by 8 points.’ I’m like — some outside company they hire — I’m like, ‘OK, they need new methodology because it’s really wrong.'”

The Hill noted that a recent Fox News national poll showed Trump trailing Biden by a 12 percentage point margin, 51 percent to 39 percent.
