On Thursday, Fox News host Melissa Francis said that she doesn’t trust any polling having to do with the 2020 election.
Francis also admitted that she has “toyed” with pollsters and that she has been polled twice in the past few days. She said that sometimes she likes to pretend she’s a person “who voted for de Blasio but now is thinking about Trump.”
“Any pollster who calls me – I do not tell the truth,” Francis responded in a tweet. “It’s not their business. But I misled them left and right in equal measure. Polling is in fact garbage. I also do always disclose where I work and ask from whom they purchased my information.”
Francis also stated that she does not trust any polling, even the stats that are coming out of her network.
“I don’t trust any polling at all based on my personal experience,” Francis tweeted after Baragona asked if she thinks “Fox News polls are also ‘garbage.’”
The Fox News host claims that she has been polled more than 20 times in the past five years, as The Daily Caller reported.
“When I ask others if they have ever been polled, I’ve never had anyone sat [sic] ‘yes’ to me,” she tweeted. “But I have personally been polled more than a 20 times in the past 5 years. (I always tell them where I work.) That has undermined my own personal confidence in polling, that is my opinion.”
