President Trump is obsessed with his poll numbers

Chill dude, the election ain't for five months!
"Trump lashes out at Fox News after poll shows him trailing Biden"

President Trump on Friday lashed out at Fox News after the network released a poll that showed him trailing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden by 8 points nationally.

The president, who consistently attempts to cast doubt on any poll that shows him trailing, tweeted that Fox News "should fire their Fake Pollster."

"Hope Roger A is looking down and watching what has happened to this once beautiful creation!" Trump tweeted, a reference to the late Fox News executive Roger Ailes, who resigned from the network in 2016 following sexual misconduct allegations.

A CNN poll released last week showed Trump trailing Biden nationally, but leading in swing states.

And a CNBC poll released this week showed Trump with a narrow lead over the former vice president among battleground voters.

The Fox News poll from Thursday found 48 percent of those surveyed favored Biden, compared with 40 percent who backed Trump. The two were tied at 42 percent in the same survey last month.

Biden leads by 17 points among voters aged 65 and older and by 13 points among independents, according to the Fox poll, two key groups that helped Trump win election in 2016.

1. A condition you seem to share.

Why is it a good thing when you do it, especially considering you got no dog in all this?

I mean it's not like anyone reads your tweets, or you that could even make an executive decision on what your wife is having for breakfast...

2. I don't attack anyone or anything over poll numbers.

I just post the findings without comment for purposes of discussion. President Trump seems to go nuts if he doesn't like the results.
