Fox News figures are downplaying and criticizing the latest presidential election poll -- Fox News' own poll.
The poll, released May 16, shows President Obama with a 7-percentage point lead over Mitt Romney, including a 22-percentage point lead among women. Despite the fact that the poll was conducted by their own employer, Fox News figures almost immediately began downplaying the results and criticizing the methodology. On the May 16 edition of The O'Reilly Factor, Fox News contributor Dick Morris joked that the poll showed that Fox News had "Democratic bias" because it surveyed registered voters, a group that Morris claimed include many who "are not going to vote." Morris warned, "If you want to know how the election is going to come out, don't pay attention to that."
