The polling firm President Donald Trump once praised as "one of the most accurate in the 2016 Election" just found that the winner of his proposed "FAKE NEWS TROPHY" is Fox News, according to a survey released Thursday.

That firm, right-leaning Rasmussen, asked 1,000 likely US voters which major network they would choose as winner "if the broadcast media established an annual Fake News Trophy." Respondents were allowed to choose between ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, NBC, or another network.

Of those surveyed, 40% said Fox News should be the winner of the first annual "Fake News Trophy." Coming in second place was CNN with 25% support. The network was followed by MSNBC with 9%, ABC with 4%, CBS with 3%, and NBC with 2%. Another 6% said the award should go to another network while 11% were undecided.

The question came after Trump on Monday proposed the competition on Twitter — though he said Fox News should not be included in such a contest.
