Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace called right-wing criticism of the polls “craziness” today, a slam against conservatives who are trying to discredit recent polls that show Mitt Romney trailing President Barack Obama by wide margins.
In an interview with radio host Mike Gallagher, Wallace said Romney was in trouble, prompting Gallagher to dismiss that as “poll manipulation.”
‘This criticism of the polls is craziness. I actually did some research on this today, which is more than you’ve done,’ Wallace shot back. “No self-respecting pollster in the country — including Fox, I might add — [weighs according to political party].”
Wallace agreed with Gallagher on the bias of the mainstream media, but said the polls were a snapshot of current circumstances, in which Obama is winning and Romney is losing.
