President Trump on Monday sought to cast doubt on a spate of recent polls that show him trailing Democratic White House hopefuls.

The poll also found Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) with a 7-point lead over the president, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) ahead of Trump by 5 points and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) with a 1-point advantage.

A Fox News poll released last month showed Biden with a 10-point lead, Sanders with a 9-point lead, Warren with a 2-point lead and Harris and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 1-point leads.
