President Donald Trump is calling out CNN over a recent poll claiming Joe Biden has a 14-point lead.
On Monday, CNN claimed in a new poll that Biden — who is linked to political corruption, unending verbal gaffes and a troubling past of rape accusations and inappropriate touching — is beating Trump five months away from the presidential election.
President Trump responded, calling it a "suppression poll" to "dampen enthusiasm" for his presidency.
Pollster McLaughlin & Associates, on behalf of President Trump, slammed the latest surveys by CNN, ABC and NBC, calling them "skewed."
It notes that CNN's pool of 1,259 people questioned consisted of only 25% Republicans, with Democrats in the majority.
Typically, pollsters question registered voters, people who have voted before and likely voters — people who plan to vote in the election they're being asked about.
But the CNN poll didn't include any of them, citing "adults" were polled regardless of whether they've voted or plan to vote in the upcoming election.
McLaughlin & Associates maintains it's "exactly what the media did in 2016" in predicting Hillary Clinton would beat Trump.
Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale comments, "CNN's credibility is shot, and blatantly manipulative polls only serve to make the public even more acutely aware of the outlet's bias."
The same outlets have been silent regarding a Rasmussen poll showing that despite constant race-baiting media coverage, 40% of black, likely voters approve of Trump — an inconvenient fact for the liberal media.
