WATCH: Fox Commentator Says Polls Are Wrong Because of Boat Parades

Donald Trump’s upset in 2016 could not have happened without the mid-West. The Republican was able to break in traditionally Democratic states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. If he has any hope of being victorious in 2020, he’ll have to win at least 2 of those states again.

But the numbers for Trump are dismal in all 3 regions and he is polling behind the margin of error. Fox News anchors are, unsurprisingly, upset by the news. Commentator Sean Duffy went as far as claiming to polls are clearly wrong because of boat parades.

Duffy is from Wisconsin and had served as a Congressman in the state’s 7th District. He stepped down from his position in 2019 to care for a daughter born with a heart condition.

Host Brian Kilmeade asked the former representative, “Do you believe the president is trailing in Wisconsin right now? I haven’t seen a poll with him up.”

Duffy replied, “Man, we’ve had boat parades, the car parades, you travel around, the Republican community is gonna walk over glass or hot coals to vote for President Trump. The polling is far too off right now. President Trump is definitely in the race in Wisconsin.”

Joe Biden has regularly led Trump in basically all polls taken in Wisconsin. The tracking website, fivethirtyeight.com shows that Biden has an average lead in the state of 7.2%. Trump won the state in 2016 by around 23,000 votes.
