After Weeks of Attacks from FOX News=> Trump Slides to Second in National Poll
The hatred for Donald Trump is palpable from several FOX News hosts and contributors.
Many shows on the so-called conservative channel hurl insult after insult at the GOP front-runner.
In numerous segments FOX will include a Democrat and a Trump-hating Bush-backing Republican to discuss the state of the GOP primary race.
It is so bad at times that conservatives are turning to CNN to get fair and balanced coverage of the race.

The hard work has paid off.
On Tuesday Dr. Ben Carson topped Trump for the first time in a national poll.
The New York Times reported:
Ben Carson has taken a narrow lead nationally in the Republican presidential campaign, dislodging Donald J. Trump from the top spot for the first time in months, according to a New York Times/CBS News survey released on Tuesday.
Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, is the choice of 26 percent of Republican primary voters, the poll found, while Mr. Trump now wins support from 22 percent, although the difference lies within the margin of sampling error.
The survey is the first time that Mr. Trump has not led all candidates since The Times and CBS News began measuring presidential preferences at the end of July.
No other candidate comes close to Mr. Carson and Mr. Trump. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida received 8 percent while former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida and Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive, are each the choice of 7 percent of Republican primary voters.
