After a Fox News poll showed Joe Biden polling better than him, Donald Trump lost it on Truth Social Thursday morning.

“FoxNews Polls are always the worst for me. They have been from the beginning, and always will be!” Trump posted.

The poll shows Biden ahead of Trump by two points, 50–48 percent. This is a shift from last month’s Fox News poll, which had Trump ahead by one point. The convicted felon and presumptive Republican presidential nominee has not been happy with Fox News in recent days. On Wednesday, Trump lashed out at the network and called for Paul Ryan to be removed from its board of directors.

“Nobody can ever trust Fox News, and I am one of them, with the weak and ineffective RINO, Paul Ryan, on its Board of Directors,” Trump posted on Truth Social, clearly still smarting over the former House speaker calling him “unfit for office” on the network last week.

Trump seems unable to handle any criticism from the right-wing outlet, which is puzzling because it’s so rare. The network has been caught airing poorly edited interviews to make him look better, helped push his lie about an FBI assassination plot, and regularly covers up stories that make him look bad. This doesn’t even include its long history of Republican partisanship in favor of Trump, particularly in the current election cycle.

Trump’s frustration may stem from more than just the Fox News poll. A Politico poll released earlier this week revealed that his felony conviction matters to Americans, making it less likely that they would vote for him. If Trump is rattled by these poll results, attacking the network that has tirelessly worked to support his candidacy might not be a wise strategy.

The recent polls underscore a growing challenge for Trump as he campaigns for the presidency. Despite his consistent claims of media bias, these numbers suggest that public opinion may be shifting. Whether or not these polling trends continue, Trump’s outbursts highlight his increasing sensitivity to unfavorable coverage and criticism.

In the face of mounting legal troubles and fluctuating poll numbers, Trump’s relationship with Fox News appears more strained than ever. His public attacks on the network and its board members reflect a broader strategy of deflection and blame-shifting, tactics that have become hallmarks of his political persona.

As the election draws nearer, it remains to be seen how these dynamics will play out. For now, Trump’s combative response to the Fox News poll signals a turbulent road ahead for his campaign, marked by ongoing battles with both the media and his critics within the Republican Party.
