Fox News Poll Allegedly Showing 51% Support for Impeachment Misrepresented the Results

Last week’s controversial Fox News poll, which claimed that 51 percent of Americans supported impeaching President Donald Trump, has been found to have misrepresented the American population in its sample size, the New York Post has discovered.

After the Post did further investigation, it discovered that the pollster responsible for the findings was Braun Research, located in Princeton, New Jersey. The Post found that Braun’s sample size was 48 percent Democratic, thus heavily skewing the results towards the Left; by contrast, the actual makeup of the American electorate is only 31 percent Democrat, with 29 percent Republican, and 38 percent Independent.

The poll originally reflected an 11-point gap between those who supported impeachment and those who opposed it, at 51 percent to 40 percent, respectively. According to the Post, if the poll had been conducted with a sample that accurately reflected these numbers, then only 44.9 percent of respondents would have favored impeachment, with 44.4 of respondents against it.

The poll’s suspicious findings even elicited a now-prescient response from President Trump, who tweeted: “I have NEVER had a good @FoxNews Poll. Whoever their Pollster is, they suck.”
