Fox News’ Impeachment Poll Is Garbage But It Gives Fox What They Want

7

A new Fox poll, geared to bring in clicks, declares that there is “record support for Trump impeachment.” That’s RECORD, you understand. While technically accurate, it’s one poll and it has some serious flaws.

That doesn’t mean we should dismiss it. We need to worry about the Democrats and their media succeeding in destroying the President. That’s their full-time job.

The Poll Results:

The poll shows a high of 51 percent want Trump impeached and removed from office, another 4 percent want him impeached but not removed, and 40 percent oppose impeachment altogether.

In July, 42 percent favored impeachment and removal, while 5 percent said impeach but don’t remove him, and 45 percent opposed impeachment.

Since July, support for impeachment increased among voters of all stripes: up 11 points among Democrats, 5 points among Republicans, and 3 among independents.

Support also went up among some of Trump’s key constituencies, including white evangelical Christians (+5 points), white men without a college degree (+8), and rural whites (+10).

Another 48% say the President is getting what he deserves with the impeachment inquiry. Mind you, he has not been afforded any of his civil rights and the newspapers are against him 24/7.

WHAT’S UP WITH THIS

If we take the poll seriously, we must consider that a lot of has happened recently that could be affecting this. But, first, don’t believe that if a majority says it, we must reconsider supporting the President. Remember that everyone in Germany was wrong in the last century.

One consideration that is affecting results is the fake Ukraine scandal. Americans aren’t reading the actual transcript of the Trump-Zelensky phone call. All they hear is Trump is colluding with a foreign power again and some big shot CIA guy quoted some other important guy was scared when he heard it or about it or something.

Then there is the fact that the President is polarizing and people are getting tired. They have Trump battle weariness.

Fox Has Gone to the Dark Side, Abandoning Those Who Made Them Rich

Another point that must be made is the President no longer enjoys wide support from Fox News. He has no one but OANN, a small network, along with some struggling conservative outlets.

If you watch Fox and watched Fox in the past, you know that they have changed quite a bit under the leadership of the left-wing Murdoch sons. The network appears to have no love for Donald Trump for the most part during the day. Many of the guests on the evening shows have been banned from the so-called daytime “factual news” shows. Sebastian Gorka is one of those banned but there are many others. Shep Smith and Judge Napolitano, two haters, are being called fact reporters by Fox.

Fox News put Paul Ryan on their board, hired feckless liars like Donna Brazile, and are clearly moving away from supporting the President. They don’t want to be associated with him as President in our estimation.

What better way to make the big jump to join the ‘mainstream media’ than to put out a very damaging poll and headline it as clickbait? We all know polls are now meant to sway opinion as much as gauge opinion.

THEY USED PROGRESSIVES

Also, Fox News used the Braun research group to do the fieldwork for the poll that claims 51% of Americans want President Trump impeached and removed.

Amanda Braun is a Progressive activist. She is a lesbian, and an LGBTQ activist.

It’s something to consider. The New York Times mentioned Braun’s background when she married:

Amanda Danielle Braun and Elizabeth Anne Shirey were married June 16. Rabbi Laurie E. Green officiated at the Mill at Fine Creek, an events space in Powhatan, Va.
Ms. Braun (left), 28, is the deputy organizing director and training director in the Richmond, Va., chapter of For Our Future, a political action committee that supports progressive issues and candidates. In 2016, she was a regional organizing director, in Reading, Pa., for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. She graduated from Wellesley College.

Hillary again! Her tentacles are everywhere!

The President pointed out on Twitter that the poll sampled 48% Democrats and only 12% Independents.

As of October 2017, Gallup polling found that 31% of Americans identified as Democrat, 24% identified as Republican, and 42% as Independent. Most are reporting there are 34% identifying as Independents. Regardless, Fox only polled 12% Independents and there certainly aren’t 48% Democrats compared to 40% Republican.

Independent voters are strongly against impeachment by a large majority and so are Republicans. They wanted the headline and the message out there. This undersampling is HUGE and the Fox poll is a sorry joke.

Many came out against the poll on Twitter:

This is an interesting string:

  • Pick the samplings and questions, and you can get a poll to pretty much say whatever you want.
    Daytime Fox will slam Trump, lose audience, and still never find favor with the left. Reminds us of when Sen. McCain was the liberals fave, until he ran for president.

  • Sounds like FOX is going to be bleeding viewers now, can’t believe we lost the only unbiased main stream cable show to the left.

  • I watch Fox news every day and do not see them turning from President Trump at all. I don’t understand where this came from. They are very supportive in my estimation. I hope I am right.

    • It depends on the shows too. Fox & Friends is still fine. Doing a lot of research as I do, I see them omitting important facts that would support the President as one example. Sandra Smith is the worst for that. Weekends, to us, with Leland Vittert are the worst. They seem to be moving left and dumping Trump but I hope you are right.

  • Support for impeachment has increased only because more fake Whistleblower complaints have been posted by the MSM. This is all an attempt by the Dums to derail the economy so Trump won’t get re-elected, but it is failing. As trade talks with China progress and Breixt nears completion, while USCM languishes because the Dums are too focused on impeaching Trump instead of doing what they were elected to do, the economy is poised to expand even further. As soon as the “whistleblower” (i.e. John Bolton) is exposed, this “scandal” will go the way of the Mueller report.

  • There should be no doubt that FOX has gone to the dark side. In the evening at least, all that is left to report honest news and investigations are Tucker and Sean. I wonder how long it will be before Lachlan Murdoch cans both of them, probably after ginning up a phony sexual misconduct case against both of them. That’s what they did to O’Reilly, and I have little doubt they will do it to them, and anyone else they have who wants to tell the truth. The only honest network left now is One America News.
