FOX NEWS POLL: 54 PERCENT OF AMERICANS SAY TRUMP SHOULD BE IMPEACHED
Just fewer than half of Americans surveyed, 48 percent, said they believe Trump obstructed Congress, while only 34 percent said they did not. And 45 percent of respondents said they believe Trump committed bribery. But more than half of Americans, 53 percent, said Trump abused the power of the Oval Office.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Fox News poll released Sunday morning found a majority of Americans, 54 percent, said President Donald Trump should be impeached, a vote the House is likely to pass this coming week.

The latest Fox News   poll conducted   last week found a majority of U.S. adults of all political affiliations say Trump abused his power in office, with 50 percent of Americans saying he should be impeached and removed as president. An additional 4 percent say he should be impeached but not removed from office. Those surveyed rejected the claim touted by Trump and Republicans that U.S. presidents typically ask foreign governments for help in investigating political rivals, with only 22 percent of respondents saying that defense checks out. A similar majority, 52 percent, said the Trump administration has not cooperated enough with the House impeachment inquiry.

The slight upward tick in those supporting impeachment comes as a result of a new high in independent voters, 45 percent, who favor impeachment, up from 38 percent in October.

About 16 percent more voters said Republican lawmakers just want to protect Trump politically instead of reviewing the accusations which led to the two articles of impeachment against him -- abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Just fewer than half of Americans surveyed, 48 percent, said they believe Trump obstructed Congress, while only 34 percent said they did not. And 45 percent of respondents said they believe Trump committed bribery. But more than half of Americans, 53 percent, said Trump abused the power of the Oval Office.

If you listen to the jackassery on right wing social media and conservative internet forums its all over but the shouting, Trump is "winning" the impeachment fight. 

Really? 

Now we know the Republican cowards in the Senate are going to let him walk, but that does not appear to be what a large portion of the American people want. 

In almost every way of looking at it in this new Fox News poll, the results are bad for Trump. Pluralities think he's guilty of bribery and obstruction of justice, and a majority wants him impeached , with a plurality of 50% saying he should be removed from office. 

Now Trumpsters will make excuses for the umpteenth time. 

Let the bamboozling begin !

Doesn't matter. It is strictly a Democrat decision to make. Do Democrats risk political backlash when the goal of removing Trump is not met? Or do they decide to bank on the numbers in that poll and just try to beat Trump in less than a year?

Once the evidence of Trump's guilt in the Ukrainian thing became obvious, and it is, the Democrats had no choice.  If they didnt impeach him they would be derelict in their duty of oversight of the executive.

In all seriousness, I dont think anyone really knows what the impeachment will mean politically, as far as voters go. It may cause many people to realize we have a crook and cheat running the country, and they will throw the bum out in November.  It would be no surprise.

I always love it when people who underestimated Trump before continue to do so.

This close to an election, some will wonder why did the Democrats waste so much time and energy when they have assured everyone that there is no way Trump can win---again.

How Don Quixote-like of them.

It is impossible to UNDER estimate Trump.  He has shown time and again that he has the mentality of Wile E Coyote.  He "thinks" he is so smart, but his actions show the intelligence of a rather simple 3 year old.

Trump has survived thus far for only one reason, the Republican's willingness to sell their souls for power, and the almighty $.

Quite true.  The Democrats continually think they have something when in fact they have nothing and he shoves it up their collective asses.

He has shown time and again that he has the mentality of Wile E Coyote. 

Actually, it's the Democrats that display that constantly.   They promote anything and everything they can conjure up and when President Trump leads them into the tunnel, they find themselves running back out being chased by the train.

If you want to make comparisons, I'd suggest you liken President Trump to the Roadrunner.

He "thinks" he is so smart, but his actions show the intelligence of a rather simple 3 year old. 

Well, I'll submit that he is actually pretty smart. 

First, he's very successful financially.  I doubt you're anywhere near earning the interest on his wealth, much less the wealth itself.

Second, he's the President and you're not.   Not only that, but he beat all the odds and polls to attain that position.  I'll admit that he very likely surprised himself with the absolute upset he accomplished.

Third, he's avoided all the bullshit the Democrats have put in his path and turned the piles on his antagonists.

Yeah, he's pretty smart after all.

That's because it is his base. They are not objective. They cannot weigh whether the President is or isn't abusing his office, they are set in stone partisans. They constantly whine about other people being biased against them but they are biased against anything but themselves and will do whatever it takes to be in power. Abandoning their oversight responsibility was an easy choice for such slimy sycophants. It's no wonder they believe any civil servant who might be registered as a Democrat simply can't be trusted, because they know THEY wouldn't be trustworthy if they were in that office and would always rule in favor of their party. They are projecting their extreme partisanship onto faithful hard working civil servants and frankly it's disgusting and evidence we need to get these Trump brown nosing Republican legislators out of office as soon as possible. No wonder nearly two dozen Republican legislators already announced they would be retiring next year. They know they can't win without sucking down dirty Donald's tainted cool-aid and they are unwilling to bend the knee to the naked Emperor and tell him how beautiful his imaginary clothes are no matter how many of their rabid constituents do. If only there were more Republican legislators with that kind of integrity. The Republican party of today looks nothing like the party of just 20 years ago.

I know, I've tried to deal with them.” - Barry Goldwater

I'm not saying either side is "unbiased". I'm saying that even those with a political bias can still follow the law and be objective when it comes to saying whether something is an abuse of power or not. I think almost every civil servant working for the United States is registered to one party ort another. If we imagine every civil servant who happens to lean pone way or another politically to be some deep state cog willing to abandon their sense of right and wrong and their oath of office just because its politically beneficial to our party, then the American experiment is already over. If we are to such polar opposites that neither side can trust the others general adherence to the law and constitution, then Putin has already won and the 250 year experiment in western democracy has already come to a close which would be a very sad day indeed only cheered by those who support Putin and his loyal wannabe oligarch dishonest Donald.

I watched Democrats circle the wagons for Bill Clinton, and I didn't vote for him in '92 or '96. I thought their partisanship was a disgusting display. I feel the same about Republicans. I also don't think just because someone else does something wrong then you should do it too. One parties bad actions should never justify the other parties use of the same. If they do, then they both prove themselves completely void of any actual standards, morals or ethics. When a terrorist is caught trying to rig an IED to kill and maim US soldiers, do we let them off the hook because their kid brother was blown up by a US airstrike? Of course not, because their claim that someone else did it to them first isn't a valid excuse to pay that violence forward. Now, some here in America likely agree that that terrorists actions aren't justified, but if their own kid brother was killed in a terrorist attack here on US soil they'd likely think they had an absolute right, a duty even, to go kill as many of those terrorists with any means necessary, IED's included. It's pretty much what we did after 9/11.

My point is that yes, both parties have done some despicable things, and members of each party have done some really vile things like the longest serving Republican leader of the House Denny Hastert raping kids and paying millions to keep them quiet. But that doesn't mean we can now excuse a Democrat for doing the same, or give a free pass to one for a future kid raping, right? That's not how this works, right? So just because some Republicans feel Democrats did something nefarious, does that justify giving dishonest Donald carte blanche to do whatever he wants regardless of how he abuses his power for his own personal political gain? Have we gone down that road so far now there is no going back to a time where political scandal was a fairly rare thing that would pop up every few months or even years and not every few minutes? If we've already crossed the Rubicon, what hope is there for the Republic?

As the old story goes, Benjamin Franklin was approached and asked what sort of government the delegates had just created. His answer, "A republic, if you can keep it.". I think the mindless partisanship we see today is evidence that we are losing our Republic. Franklin once said "when you assemble a number of men to have the advantage of their joint wisdom, you inevitably assemble with those men, all their prejudices, their passions, their errors of opinion, their local interests, and their selfish views."

He appeared to think it impossible to expect a "perfection" from such a gathering as they had, but he believed that the Constitution they had just written, "with all its faults," was better than any alternative that was likely to emerge. I personally believe our current system isn't perfect, but it's a hell of a lot better than the alternative on either side, left or right. If both sides are just determined to out-high crime the other (high crimes being an abuse of power, not an actual criminal statute as some morons would have you believe) then we are doomed and have just two choices before us, the right wing fascism Trump and his base foam at the mouth for or the cobbled together capitalist/socialist Republic we have created out of our founders constitutional foundation.

The crazy thing is Fox is always skewed, so if the truth was actually told, then I think the percentage for impeachment and impeachment/removal is much higher that the Fox poll. Anyone with an ounce of decency and common sense knows that the Republican experiment of allowing Trump free rein was a mistake. Now Republicans desperately cling to him in order to protect themselves from admitting that mistake. They could control the "Tea Party" experiment and shut it down. Now they have crossed the Rubicon into allowing cronyism, nepotism, and corruption that has become openly flaunted in the face of the law. Not a shred of decency left.

Normal people don;t go around offering to buy stuff from other people on the street. Figured all adults already knew that, but I can see it is necessary to point that fact out to you.

Your whole argument about Trump not being able to afford her is ludicrous on its face. Pray tell how you know what he can afford, and how much it would take to buy your beloved Abuela. Either you DO know and can tell me, or you simply DON'T know and that makes your whole argument moot.

Actually that is true, but towards democrats.

Yesterday, Kevin Cork did a report on this poll and at the end of his report, he let the cat out of the bag. He said the poll over sampled democrats. I tried to look at the methodology, but the only thing it stated was the percentage of error.

The opinion to impeach is probably more towards the liberal base, mid 40s at most.

All Trump Impeachment and Removal From Office: Support/Oppose Polling Data

Source:  https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/public_approval_of_the_impeachment_and_removal_of_president_trump-6957.html

If you're interested, which I know you're not as I didn't cherry pick ONE poll as you did, you can go to the SUPPLIED link and look at the tracking graph and even you should be able to discern which line is going down.   I'll make it easy for you and save you time.  Impeach and remove support is going down while impeach and remove opposition is going up.  In other words fewer and fewer people, once they're heard the truth want President Trump removed from office.  It appears you're in the minority once again JR.

As you say about polls not in favor of this 'president' - they're useless (polls that is and this 'president).

As you say about polls

If you're going to admonish me about polls, please TRY to remember that I believe they're all useless as invariably come to the predetermined conclusion(s) the poll taker desires.  Those results can be predetermined easily simply by the wording of the question asked and potential answers allowed.

However, having said that, as I told JR....   If you're going to use polls, don't cherry pick, all you accomplish is validate that polls are useless.

I didnt cherry pick anything. I posted a seed about a news story from last night. 

If you believed the right wing babbling about all this, you would think that Americans overwhelmingly think that Trump is being persecuted because he is doing such a great job and fringe socialists cant stand it. 

The FACTS are that Trump is an unpopular president. More people believe he has not done a good job than think that he has. 

Because conservative "thinking" takes place in a media bubble of Trump rallies, Fox News, talk radio , and right wing internet sites, Trump supporters imagine themselves to be the only "Americans" and that they have "everyone" behind them.  It is pretty much nonsense. 

Its depressingly humorous to watch the right on this site constantly declare "victory" because something comes out in their media that they like. 

You (Trump supporters) are a minority, and a cult like minority at that,  Trump has never had a majority of Americans support him, and never will.

Are those "FACTS" like the transcript Schiff read into Congressional testimony?  

The left is losing their shit about the realization that President Trump is going to win again in 2020 and nothing they're throwing in his way is even slowing him down.

More often than not it is a waste of time to talk to Trump supporters, as you just demonstrated. 

You are emotional about defending Trump, which causes you to try and compare a poll to a "skit" the chairman of a congressional committee performed. Yikes. 

Trump has NEVER had the majority of Americans support him, yet you Trump supporters regularly act as if only a total fool could oppose him. 

It doesnt even make any sense.

You cherry picked a 6 day old poll from a site you belittle all the time.

constantly declare "victory" because something comes out in their media that they like.

Again after you cherry picked a poll and now saying, see I told you so look.

Obviously you didn't like the results of what CNN reported, maybe Anderson "Fake news" Cooper can whitewash them for you?

I'm hardly emotional JR.   And now you're calling the TESTIMONY of the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, which was read into official records of the hearings a "skit"?   Is that what you think of Adam Schiff?  He's an actor doing a comedy routine?  No need to answer, it's a rhetorical question.

This is a message to everyone on this thread. I have reviewed this thread and I am deleting it all for no value. Do not continue about the poll any further. Only warning.

How's this JR?   Would you care to rethink your losing position?

Since JR's position seems to be reflecting the data in the Fox poll, and your link supports that data, WTF are you talking about XD?

Qunnipac has Trump at his highest approval ever

Suffolk has him beating every single potential  Democratic nominee for the first time ever

The most partisan impeachment in history doing its part to ensure Trump's reelection.

CNN just released a poll showing support for impeachment has dropped 9%, to 45%, since October.

CNN??? 

Really?

My God, the heads must be spinning at CNN headquarters to actually report something not 100% negative about Trump!

I believe that most Americans can recognize the sham of impeachment that the Democrats are pulling.

And wondering why the articles of impeachment are strangely devoid of most of the crap that Democrats have talked about for almost 4 years, like collusion. And quid pro quo. And the Emoluments Clause.

And wondering why not just beat him at the polls next November like they have told everyone they can do so easily.
