In the wake of President Barack Obama’s reelection, Fox & Friends examined some of the exit polls that showed what factors voters considered when heading into the voting booth on Tuesday. When Brian Kilmeade was told that a majority of voters considered Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy when they cast their vote, he said America must be the “shallowest” nation in history to vote for a “photo op.”
Breaking down the keys to Obama’s victory, the Fox & Friends hosts examined the exit polling data from election night which showed President Obama doing slightly better with young voters and non-Cuban Hispanic voters than he did in 2008.
The exit polls also showed that 57 percent of the country’s voters thought that Hurricane Sandy and the response to that storm heavily impacted their vote. 42 percent said that the response to the storm was important and 15 percent said it was the most important factor influencing their vote.
“I can’t believe those numbers,” Gretchen Carlson said.
“This may have become a national issue,” Heather Nauert replied
“Then we have the shallowest country in the history of man,” Kilmeade replied. “One photo op walking over a two-by-four, and suddenly he’s handling a storm – which, by the way, hasn’t been handled well.”
“What percentage though ‘Romnesia’ was an actual medical condition,” Steve Doocy asked.
