BRET BAIER (HOST): Polls of likely voters - this is important - are only realistic a couple of months prior to the next election. It's not really standard practice for most organizations, including Fox News -- you can take that off the screen -- to move from registered voters to likely voters. Usually around Labor Day, that's when many everyday Americans start tuning in and turning their attention to the election. So that gives us a perspective of this poll. And I just wanted to take you inside those numbers. These are state polls, again, not a national poll. 


CHARLIE HURT: Yeah and I think you gave a very good rundown on why some of these polls, this early out, are to be taken with at least a slight grain of salt. And I think those caveats become even greater when you look around at the environment that we're looking at right now where you have, you know, one of the reasons that people are reluctant to talk to pollsters has a lot to do with, you know, the toxic environment that we're in. And so with that caveat, I think it's important to also note that the campaign has just begun. Obviously as anybody would note, you know, you want to be ahead in the polls at all times. But the campaign has just begun and when people look around and they see the lawlessness in the streets and they see we've just been through a pandemic, an economic collapse the likes of which this country has never seen before, you know, it's going to be a full three, four or five month campaign before these issues start to get sorted out.
