Fox News host Sean Hannity backed President Trump in a big way recently by slamming the method used by Fox News to conduct its polling.

According to The Hill:

Sean Hannity said on his syndicated radio show Tuesday that he agreed with President Trump's criticism of Fox News polling, arguing it was "oversampling" Democrats.
 
Hannity, who is also a Fox News television host, criticized the polling methodology used by the network, calling it "really wrong" compared to other recent surveys measuring the popularity of Trump and Democratic presidential candidates like former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
 
"The New York Times–Siena College poll shows Trump in a dead heat in battleground states, matched up against the three leading Democratic candidates: Biden, Sanders and Warren," Hannity said. "And I always say, and I believe, Trump doesn't poll well. And I don't know what's up with the Fox poll. I look at their poll, I'm like, 'OK, you're oversampling Democrats by 8 points.' I'm like — some outside company they hire — I'm like, 'OK, they need new methodology because it's really wrong.'"

...

Trump has often criticized polls that don't reflect favorably on his presidency. He regularly cites his 2016 election upset as proof that polls shouldn't be taken seriously.

Hannity is going directly against the network that employs him by criticizing the techniques used by it to poll Americans.
