“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade stood up for Fox News Channel pollsters in response to criticism from a White House spokesperson during an on-air interview on Friday.
Trump campaign press secretary Hogan Gidley asserted that most of the polls — including a new Fox News survey showing Joe Biden with a lead in two key battleground states — are “fake.”
He went on to allege that pollsters “oversample Democrats” and obtain skewed results.
“I know the people that do the polls,” Kilmeade shot back. “They don’t do it fake. They do a really good job.”
Gidley suggested that “accuracy” should be the determining factor for whether pollsters were were successful.
“I’m not saying they’re Nostradamus,” Kilmeade said. “But I am just saying … they’re professionals — so don’t call Fox News pollsters fake.”
