Rush Limbaugh warned about FOX News Channel’s turn against President Trump just a week ago.
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.
Funny how @SpeakerRyan who now helps run Fox News has got them to RIG THEIR POLLS
Check out their polling samples! They aren’t even polling fox viewers!
They are trying to give cover for @GOP to impeach!

It’s a sham.
The Fox News poll is wrong, just like their final poll in 2016 (had Hillary winning by 4) was wrong.
A staggering 48% of those polled on this bogus impeachment charade were Democrats.
Our internal polling shows voters, particularly Independents, oppose this sham!

And on Sunday the New York Post reported their findings on the poll — It was not accurate.
“The poll released last week by Fox News that claimed most Americans favor the impeachment of President Trump underrepresented Republican and independent voters, The Post has found.
The poll said 51% of voters were in favor of Trump’s impeachment and removal from office, while 40% did not want him impeached.
Princeton, New Jersey, pollster Braun Research, which conducted the survey, noted 48% of its respondents were Democrats. But the actual breakdown of party-affiliation is 31% Democrat, 29% Republican and 38% independent, according to Gallup.
A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% opposed it, a Post analysis has concluded.
