I really miss Fox News but I quit watching it two years ago. It is sad to see the only real conservative station turn themselves over to the dark side of the force. Now, we have nothing. It has relegated us conservatives to the internet for out news.
The latest example of Fox News treachery is their recent polls on the presidential election. Their numbers give Joe Biden a big lead while every other poll finds them about tied. How is that humanly possible? Easy, they over sample the Democrats. And they did it by a lot. In Arizona which is a conservative state, they gave the Democrats a four point edge rather that the 5 point edge for Republicans, which is a swing of nine points. That is exactly the 9 points Fox says Biden beats Trump by there.
Compared to the October 2018 Arizona poll, Fox News has included six percent more Democrats and seven percent fewer Republicans, a net change of 13 percent towards Democrats and away from Republicans, in its sample of poll respondents.
Fox News polls have been criticized for oversampling Democrats, as Brian Joondeph wrote in this article published at Rasmussen Reports in July:
The Fox News poll [of national voters conducted in July] oversampled Democrats by four points, and in the “who would you vote for today,” Biden won by an eight-point margin. But the poll was split evenly on whether Trump would be reelected.

In Wisconsin, the Fox News poll of 801 likely voters (with a margin of error of 3.5 percent) was conducted between August 29 and September 1 and consists of a sample of respondents that is 44 percent Democrat, 42 percent Republican, and 15 percent independent, or D +2.
The most current PVI for the state of Wisconsin, as listed on the Cook Political Report website is “even.” The average PVI of the eight congressional districts in Wisconsin in 2020 is D +1, according to the Cook Political Report.
The Wisconsin Fox News poll respondent sample at D +2 was only one to two points more Democrat than the state’s PVI would suggest.
In North Carolina, the Fox News poll of 722 likely voters (with a margin of error of 3.5 percent) was conducted between August 29 and September 1 and consists of a sample of respondents that is 46 percent Democrat, 45 percent Republican, and nine percent Independent, or D +1.
In contrast, the most current PVI for the state of North Carolina, as listed on the Cook Political Report website is R +3. The average PVI of the 13 congressional districts in North Carolina in 2020 is R +3, according to the Cook Political Report.
