On Monday, Fox News pushed its credibility to the limit with a poll that claims Democrat Doug Jones leads Judge Roy Moore by 10 points. As Breitbart noted, the contrast between the Fox News poll and every other recent major poll could not be sharper.

The Fox News Poll released on Monday “was under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R),” and included a respondent sample of likely voters that included 44 percent Republicans, 42 percent Democrats, and 14 percent independents (Republican +2) (see political identification after question 7 here), which significantly
