The poll comes as House Democrats move swiftly with an impeachment inquiry against President Trump that was launched in the wake of a partisan Central Intelligence Agency officer's so-called "whistleblower" complaint claiming the president pressured the leader of Ukraine to look into allegations of corruption against former vice president and 2020 candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
"FOX SHOCK", the Drudge headline screamed in red.
"Fox Poll say best Economy in DECADES!" But some media types like to say "even Fox" has found such-and-such, as if it's a survey of the network's viewers rather than a widely respected professional polling operation.
People, especially Democrats who want to discuss policy and not just Trump's conduct, are concerned the impeachment inquiry into Trump could overwhelm policy debate, and fuel feelings of disconnect between politics and public concerns. Because even though this is their poll, they're still working hard to spin it in a way that looks good for Trump.
More than half of Americans say they support the impeachment inquiry launched by the House of Representatives against President Donald Trump. But @FoxNews is also much different than it used to be in the good old days. He went on to name some of his least favorite network figures-Andrew Napolitano, Shep Smith, Donna Brazile-but added: "Oh well, I'm President!"
On January 24, 2016, Trump tweeted about a Fox News poll that had him winning Iowa and New Hampshire, along with "thank you" to the states.
Now, it may be noteworthy that more than one in 10 Republicans want Trump gone.
He is only the fourth U.S. president to face an impeachment probe but after an initially stumbling response the Republican has hit on a strategy of maximum resistance to try to transform the threat into a boost.
Some Democrats have wanted to impeach Trump forever. Democrats have seen an 11 point jump in support for impeaching Trump since July, while Republicans have seen an increase of five points and independents have seen an increase of three points. The poll has a margin of sampling error of +/- 3 percentage points for all registered voters. If that drags on, with the inevitable court battles, many people may dismiss the whole mess as the usual Beltway bickering.
While Trump has called the complaint against him "a awful thing for our country", and said that it's important to know who the whistleblower is, 59 percent of USA adults want to protect that person's identity.
But Trump isn't the only one unhappy with his media coverage.
According to The New York Times, she told legislators that she was forced from her job as a result of "false claims".
The letter, obtained by CNN, says the Times is actively participating in "a smear campaign", that had previously been relegated to the likes of Breitbart and Russian propaganda. There is no evidence of wrongdoing by either Joe or Hunter Biden in Ukraine. The voters who do not want Trump impeached was 40 percent, down from 45 percent in July.
