A Fox News poll published Wednesday shows a record 51 percent of respondents support the impeachment and removal of President Donald Trump, a nine-point increase from the news network’s most previous survey on July 19th.
The poll shows an additional four percent believe that the president should be impeached yet remain in office, while 40 percent expressed opposition to impeachment in general. Five percent stated they were undecided on the matter.
The Trump-hating media — including new NeverTrump jihadist Matt Drudge — is exploding with delight over this poll.
But one quick look behind the numbers shows that the FoxNews survey is as biased as the worst mainstream polls from the 2016 election that portrayed Trump as a sure-loser.
FoxNews has oversampled Democrats by (at least) 8%, and minimized Independent voters to get these results:
Ridiculous! Yet try and find ONE media outlet that is reporting this extreme bias.
For contrast, check out Gallup’s most-recent (Sept. 3-15) breakdown of “likely voters” by party:
Now look again at FoxNews, and the breathless DrudgeReport scream.
It was one thing when the media, Fox included, put out ridiculous unbalanced polls in 2016, which one would think they had learned from.
But this poll is different. It is being used to push a NARRATIVE — America wants Trump impeached. That is far more sinister than the arrogant failed polls of 2016.
When you go against the Deep State, you take on EVERYONE. The Uniparty, the corrupt politicians paid off by China and the open borders U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Endless War lobby. No tactic is too despicable to engage in order to stop Trump in 2020.
Thankfully, President Trump is not taking this sham, oversampled poll lying down:
…Court Justice & I turned him down (he’s been terrible ever since), Shep Smith, @donnabrazile (who gave Crooked Hillary the debate questions & got fired from @CNN), & others, @FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore. It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I’m President!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 10, 2019
A Trump campaign spokesperson added:
“It’s not hard to get 51% in favor of impeachment when nearly half of those polled were Democrats….The media should put this poll where it belongs – in the garbage.”
Amen to that. And shame on you Fox “News”.
