Bernie's smart move to do a Fox News town hall
"Fox News Sunday" anchor Chris Wallace — who was arguably the most prepared, fair and measured moderator of any of the presidential debates in 2016 — would likely be the one asking Democratic candidates the questions. Baier would likely also be chosen for the job based on his 2016 debate performance.
A Pew Research study released Sept. 2017 showed that 10 percent of Fox News viewers identified as liberal Democrats. Another 43 percent of Fox’s audience identified as conservative Republicans — meaning 47 percent don't identify as liberal Democrats or Republicans.
Those voters could make a difference in the former blue wall of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan — as well as the key states of Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, New Hampshire, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado and perhaps even states like Georgia and Missouri.
The Sanders town hall on Fox News on April 15 will likely draw millions of viewers. Other Democratic candidates will see the numbers, and more importantly, see the press generated from a Democratic candidate being asked questions that few hosts are asking on other networks.
