I was watching Fox this morning to see if they'de mention this Romney SLAUGHTER over Trump.

NO, they mentioned ONLY OBAMA's numbers in this poll.


Right after this, They mention Trump and the PPP win which is GETTING OLD, seeing it was the ONLY POLL he won and it was last week.

Fox News!
Fair and Balanced.

I'll admit that PPP is not the best, second best or even the third best polling company, but ABC has a reputation of being laughable. 33% have absolutely no opinion????

I haven't heard anything about this poll and Trumps poor showing on tv or radio today.

I wouldn't expect the news outlets to spread this news.

Right now Trump is the comedy act. The media won't report anything that bursts that bubble.
