While wondering the interwebs, I caught this title from Fox News and couldn’t help but laugh and shake my head at the same time.
According to reports, Trump has at least a 20 percent edge on Haley going into the Republican primary and has somewhere around 52% of the support.
From Boston 10:
Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has slightly increased his lead over second place Nikki Haley in New Hampshire with four days left until the state’s first-in-the-nation primary, according to the results of the latest Suffolk University/NBC10 Boston/Boston Globe tracking poll.
The survey results, released Friday morning, have Trump at 52%, two percentage points higher than he had polled in the first two days of the poll. Haley, meanwhile, dropped a percentage point, landing at 35%. DeSantis remained a distant third at 6% for the second straight day. Another 1% chose someone else, 4% were undecided and 1% refused to answer. The survey of 500 likely Republican primary voters was conducted from Jan. 17-18. The margin of error is 4.4%.
With that in mind below was an actual title from Fox News:
Here’s what Fox News wrote in their report:
Haley was edged by DeSantis for a distant second place to the former president in Monday night’s caucuses in Iowa. Trump – the commanding front-runner in the Republican race as he makes his third straight White House run – grabbed 51% of the vote in Iowa as he obliterated the previous margin of victory in a GOP presidential caucus.
But the latest polls in New Hampshire – which votes second overall in the Republican schedule and holds the first primary next Tuesday – indicate Haley is competitive with Trump while DeSantis is a distant third in single digits.
Not one place in the report does Fox News link to any report showing that the race is tightening.
Seriously, since when was at least a 20 point gap a tight race?
