Donald Trump is counting on unified Republican support to beat back the Democrats’ attempted coup to remove him from office.
But the President just got smacked with some devastating news on that front.
That’s because Fox News turned the impeachment debate upside down with one shocking report.
Support for impeachment in public polls ticked up because Democrats and Left-leaning independents changed their minds on the issue now that impeachment is an official Democrat Party position.
But impeachment requires Republicans to link arms with Democrats and vote to remove the President in the Senate.
And a brand new Fox News poll shows a majority of Americans support impeaching and removing the President from office.
Fox News reports:
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.
Fox News polls have been horribly biased against President Trump in the past.
The President’s routinely called them out for their anti-Trump slant.
And this poll surveyed eight percent more Democrats than Republicans.
Stacking the sample with Democrats is one way media outlets arrive at predetermined results that drive the narrative they want the public to hear.
