New York, Oct.16 : Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is of the view that FOX News has cost him a few points in the polls.
In an interview with NYT reporter Matt Bai, to be published Sunday, Obama says: "I am convinced that if there were no Fox News, I might be two or three points higher in the polls."
Obama says in the article. "If I were watching Fox News, I wouldn't vote for me, right? Because the way I'm portrayed 24/7 is as a freak!"
He continues that he is being typecast as "the latte-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effet, politically correct, arrogant liberal. Who wants somebody like that?"
Obama's reference to his poll numbers comes at a time when he has opened up a commanding lead over his rival, John McCain, in national polls, as well as in several battleground states.
A recent New York Times poll puts Obama ahead by 14 percentage points.ANI)
