On his radio show yesterday, Sean Hannity attacked his own employer’s polling as untrustworthy – because it happened to provide bad news for Donald Trump.
But we have also known that truth and facts mean nothing to Hannity compared to propagandizing for Trump. Now we know that Hannity will throw his own employer under the bus in order to talk up his beloved Trump.
From the Media Matters transcript:
HANNITY: I don't know what's up with the Fox poll. I look at their poll, I'm like, OK, you're sampling -- oversampling Democrats by eight points. I'm like -- some outside company they hire, I'm like, OK, they need new methodology because it's really wrong.
Listen to it below, from the November 4, 2019 The Sean Hannity Show, via Media Matters.

My Virginia Senate district flipped blue! I and thousands of my neighbors sent a small message to Donald. We came within 92 votes of flipping our House of Delegates seat to send a bigger message. I can’t emphasize enough what a milestone this is. My district helped throw out establishment Republican Eric Cantor a number of years back in favor of Tea Party Dave Brat. Yeah, we were that conservative until Brat got tossed on his ass in favor of moderate Democrat Abigail Spanberger the last Congressional election.
My state sent an even bigger message to Trump flipping all blue – governor, House of Delegates and Senate – for the first time in 26 years! It means the Democrats can un-gerrymander the state map!
Tweet all your want Mango Mussolini. Virginia (and even more Kentucky where you campaigned) made an ass out of you yesterday.
Of course, there are so many caveats. Early polls mean little except to Trump’s monstrous ego. The Electoral College grossly distorts the national polls since the election is state by state. Trump’s MAGA supporters often are embarrassed of their support so they lie to pollsters.
Still, not happy numbers for your guy pal.
