Fox News Has Egg On Their Face When Poll Claiming Americans Want Trump Impeached Is Debunked
On Saturday, an analysis was released of the Fox News poll claiming that 51% of Americans wanted the President impeached, the analysis discovered that Fox News had “misrepresented” their poll.
It also appears that a former Congressman and “never Trumper” may be at the center for the reason why the poll “misrepresented” their findings.
Last week Fox News released a poll claiming that 51% of registered voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office. The poll supposedly claimed there was a double-digit increase of those that wanted the President impeached. The poll prompted a very sharp criticism of Fox News from the President…
…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!

However, on Saturday the New York Post exposed the Fox News Poll.
Braun Research whom is the firm that conducted the survey stated that 48 percent of its respondents were Democrats; however, the Post revealed that the “actual breakdown” based on party affiliation is 31 percent Democrat, 29 percent Republican, and 38 percent independent. The Post reported:
Princeton, New Jersey, pollster Braun Research, which conducted the survey, noted 48% of its respondents were Democrats. But the actual breakdown of party-affiliation is 31% Democrat, 29% Republican and 38% independent, according to Gallup.
A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% opposed it, a Post analysis has concluded.
But, there’s also a little caveat to this whole thing.
Emerald Robinson who is the Chief White House correspondent for One America News said that Paul Ryan is a board member of a parent company for Fox News called the Fox Corp. and has hired a “polling firm run by liberal activists.”
Robinson believes that the poll was designed to serve as “cover for the GOP to impeach Trump.”
Like we reported earlier in the month “never Trumpers” are aiding Democrats to impeach the President.
