    Fox News Poll: Record Support for Trump Impeachment.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/fox...mp-impeachment

    Democrats accuse Trump of obstruction as White House steps up pushback against impeachment inquiry

    Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins says in order for the impeachment inquiry to be fair it needs to be voted on in the House. Collins says if it were formally voted on the House minority would have subpoena rights.

    Just over half of voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a Fox News Poll released Wednesday.

    A new high of 51 percent wants 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).

    Among voters in swing counties (where Hillary Clinton and Trump were within 10 points in 2016), support for impeachment increased to 52 percent, up from 42 percent in July.

    A lot has happened since the July Fox poll on impeachment -- namely, the launch of an impeachment inquiry in the House following allegations Trump improperly pressured Ukraine to investigate the Bidens’ dealings in that country. The 9-point increase in support for impeachment since July, however, doesn’t appear to be based solely on the latest allegations. To that point, more Democrats favor impeaching Trump (85 percent) than consider his call with Ukraine’s president an impeachable offense (76 percent). The same holds true among independents: 39 percent favor impeachment, while 30 percent describe the Ukraine call as impeachable.

    The 4-in-10 voters opposing impeachment give a variety of reasons, including: Trump did nothing wrong (21 percent), it is politically motivated (20 percent), and don’t believe allegations (15 percent).

    Approval of Trump’s job performance is down a couple of points to 43 percent, while 55 percent disapprove. Last month, it was 45-54 percent. Currently, 86 percent of Republicans approve compared to 89 percent in September.


    Some 51 percent of voters think the Trump administration is more corrupt than previous administrations, up from 46 percent last month.


    By a 66-25 percent margin, voters say it is generally inappropriate for Trump to ask foreign leaders to investigate political rivals.


    When asked about Trump’s phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart that is at the heart of the impeachment inquiry, 17 percent believe it was appropriate. Most either describe it as an impeachable offense (43 percent) or as inappropriate but not impeachable (27 percent).


    Trump has called the Ukraine phone call “perfect.” Even some Republicans aren’t convinced: 9 percent say it was an impeachable offense, 38 percent inappropriate but not impeachable, and 36 percent appropriate.

    Overall, by an 11-point margin, more voters believe Trump is “getting what he deserves” rather than that the impeachment inquiry is driven by “people out to get him.”


    During President Bill Clinton’s 1998 impeachment, by a 3-point margin, more thought “people were out to get” him than believed Clinton was “getting what he deserved.”

    Meanwhile, voters think President Trump is just out for himself. Fifty-five percent overall and 18 percent of Republicans say he is doing what’s best for Trump. Thirty-nine percent think he puts the country first.

    Thirty-eight percent find the situation surrounding Trump’s dealings with Ukraine extremely troubling, while 19 percent say the same about the allegations about Biden and his son’s business dealings in Ukraine.

    Washington leaders remain unpopular

    Negative views outnumber positive views for the impeachment players.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s personal favorability rating is under water by 6 points (42 percent favorable vs. 48 percent unfavorable). Still, that’s a new high, and gives her the highest favorable rating of Capitol Hill leadership tested in the poll.

    House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) is also viewed more negatively than positively by 6 points (27-33), although 4 voters in 10 are unable to rate him.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is in negative territory by 23 points (26-49) and 25 percent can’t rate him. Voters have a negative view of both Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani by 22 points (31-53) and Attorney General William Barr by 14 points (24-38).

    Trump’s popularity ticked up a point since the inquiry: 43-56 percent vs. 42-56 percent in August.


    Hillary Clinton’s ratings roughly match Trump’s: 41 percent favorable, 54 percent unfavorable. The previous Fox News poll showed her at 40-57 percent in June 2017.

    Vice President Mike Pence stands at 40-49 percent compared to 39-48 percent two months ago.

    Trump has an 84 percent favorable among Republicans compared to 70 percent for Pence and 43 percent for McConnell, while 69 percent of Democrats have a favorable view of Pelosi.

    More have a positive rather than a negative view of the Democratic Party by 2 points (49 favorable vs. 47 unfavorable), while the Republican Party is under water by 15 (40-55). Part of that is explained by more Democrats (85 percent favorable) viewing their party positively than Republicans do theirs (79 percent favorable).

    Voters are inclined to see the motives of Republican lawmakers as more political. By a 3-point margin, more think congressional Democrats truly believe Trump committed an impeachable offense than say Democrats just want to hurt him politically.

    On the other side, by a 23-point margin, more think congressional Republicans just want to protect Trump politically than say GOP lawmakers sincerely believe what he did is not impeachable.

    Overall, voters remain dissatisfied with the job Congress is doing: 21 percent approve, while 63 percent disapprove. In May, it was 21-66 percent.

    Conducted October 6-8, 2019 under the joint direction of Beacon Research (D) and Shaw & Company (R), this Fox News Poll includes interviews with 1,003 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide who spoke with live interviewers on both landlines and cellphones. The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters.

    What they don't take into consideration is the fact that many refuse to participate in polls...or don't answer calls from unknown numbers.

    Once more, NDAA 2013 made it legal to lie to the citizens of the US of A via the media. NO poll has any validity. It's all controlled by the deep state, it being all media and the tools they use, like polls. Lies on top of lies.

    Depends on how the question is worded......

    Something like...."would you support Impeachment vote in the House" which guarantees Open Hearings, where the Reps would also be able to subpoena and question witnesses.

    I would support that, just so that voters could see the lack of evidence the Dem have.

    But the Senate is not even going to open a Hearing - they know the votes are not there to proceed.

    These changes in the polls are the result of the one sided propaganda put out by the main stream news.
    They constantly trumpet any democrat spew while completely ignoring the things conservatives and investigators have found.
    It's the main reason Trump wants a vote in the House and to get on with official impeachment so that he can present a defense that will be put out to the whole country. Right now the Dems in the House have effectively prevented Trump from presenting the facts on his side or even questioning the "whistle blower".

    Pelosi and the Dems don't really want the impeachment procedure to become real and official because then they could not continue their one sided propaganda war. They don't want the American people to see that this whole thing is just another phony Russian collusion attempt at overturning the election.

    That would be the Smith-Mundt Act. It was illegal to use propaganda on US citizens. Obama changed that. It is buried in the NDAA.

    Well, i am no demo...I might be considered a Constitutionalist, but that is irrelevant here, in re: to my point- a draft-dodger IS non-presidential.

    If all people watch, read or listen to is the MSM then I can absolutely see this result. I haven't heard one mention of Bidens shady dealing on any MSM. Trump also doesn't help his case with his Tweets and off the cuff remarks.

    Given how close the split is in the country between Trump supporters and communists, I'm not surprised by the number. The never trumpers can swing enough votes to push it over 50%, especially with the 3 years of constant anti-trump propaganda that's spewed from the MSM.

    I really wish I could see a peaceful way for the next 13 months to come about, but it's not gonna happen. There is no voting our way out of what's coming.

    Ever since Ailes left Fox took a dump and it didn’t help when weasel Paul Ryan was put on the board of director’s either. And as has been said they use ‘polls’ to craft public perception and you can make a poll say whatever you want it to say.

    WAYNEDUPREE.com How this Fox poll was manipulated and results skewed. Relax, this poll is no reflection on changing beliefs and attitudes toward Trump. However, it is another strong sign that Fox is tilting left.

    Transcribed by me from a photo of the original newspaper.

    Savannah Republican – April 8, 1861

    The Telegraph and Sensation Newspapers.

    We think the time has arrived for the press, at least the honest portion of it, to enter a solemn protest against the frauds and abuses that are put upon the public the agency of telegraph dispatches. They are not only notoriously deceiving the people, but they are bringing journalism into disrepute and the telegraph into contempt. Nobody knows when to believe what they read in that department of the newspaper, and by common consent, and for very good reason we may add, the world is coming to believe nothing coming through that channel, until it is positively confirmed through the mails.

    The Associated Press who collate news and furnish it over the wires to the papers, at a very high cost, are in great part responsible for this imposition, which is now become intolerable. It originated with the fast daily press of the Northern cities, which, anxious to get ahead of their competitors, are willing to receive just anything that was sent them, and before a fact transpired, would publish a dozen guesses and conjectures about it, all in the form of positive assertions, trusting form some of them to turn out to be true.

    The New York Herald, and other journals of that class, make it a practice to publish everything that is sent to them, without regard to its source, or whether it has any source at all or not. The only condition of its admission being that it contains something startling or scandalous, that will the world agog, and cause the people to inquire for the Herald, etc. To meet the demand of such newspaper, the associated press has followed the example set it by other correspondents, and the evil has progressed so far the telegraphic column of a public journal is now set down as a tissue of lies. We have all sorts of vague rumors and speculations, picked up in the street, around the hotels and in the gutters, sent over the wires at a heavy expense to the publishers; and hardly a day comes when a positive declaration on some important matter is not made, and within twenty-four hours as positively reversed. And for all this, half the world, who know no better, are blaming the newspapers, and saying they are no longer to be believed.

    Nor are the newspapers, a part of them at least, though we hope a very few, free from guild in this systematic fraud upon the popular credulity. The class of which we speak are not numerous at the South, and yet there are some which, for want of more solid merit, seek to build up a reputation with sensation dispatches and other ingenious contrivances to startle their readers. For this purpose they continue to employ correspondents who have often and again deceived and misled their subscribers, and we have known some of them, when their correspondent fails to come up fully to the sensation mark, by startling headings, positive perversion of the language and clear meaning of a dispatch, and sometimes by suppressing distasteful portions of it, get up in their offices the requisite amount of humbug for a day’s consumption.

    Now, we enter our solemn protest against all this system of misrepresentation, wherever it may originate or be endorsed. It is an insult to truth, a fraud upon the public, and a dishonor to a noble profession. The people of all classes look to the press for light and truth; they form opinions, and regulate their action, by its teachings; and the journalist who keep them in the dark by suppressing the truth, or lead them astray by the promulgation of what he knows to be false, should be lashed with a whip of scorpions from the position which he abuses and degrades.

    Quit watching them years ago because of the obvious liberal leaning.

    STUNNING. FOX News Plays Trick on Viewers – Oversamples Democrats by 14 POINTS in Junk Impeachment Poll
    by Jim Hoft October 10, 2019



    FOX News Plays Trick on Viewers – Oversamples Democrats by 14 POINTS in Junk Impeachment Poll

    Some people are blaming new board member Paul Ryan but is that really fair?

    Rush Limbaugh warned about FOX News Channel’s turn against President Trump just last week.

    FOX News posted a stunning poll on Thursday that shows that 51% of Americans want President Trump impeached on the media’s fraudulent Ukrainian accusations.

    But FOX News used a poll that was weighted by 14 points in favor of Democrats.

    Polls are skewed to the view point of the pollsters to obtain the results that the pollsters desire....

    Has been this way since polls have been taken....

    There are truth seekers, liars and pollsters with pollsters ratings lower than used car salesmen and insurance salesmen....
