Fox News anchor drops devastating poll result showing a majority want Trump removed from office

Published

on

A majority of Americans — 51 percent — want President Donald Trump to be impeached and removed from office, according to a Fox News poll announced Wednesday night.

Fox News anchor Bret Baier — ostensibly one of the network’s straight (i.e., non-opinion) hosts — announced the news, with little hint in his voice of how much of a stunning a result the poll was. (Despite the network’s ideology, its polling is recognized by experts to be reliable.) Since Democrats took control of the House of Representatives in 2019, polls have consistently shown that the appetite for ousting Trump was starkly a minority opinion. Now, with House Democrats eager for an impeachment inquiry and the Ukraine scandal exploding with new revelations every day, support is climbing.

In addition to the 51 percent in favor of impeachment and removal, another 4 percent said Trump should be impeached but not removed from office (a somewhat curious but coherent position). Only 40 percent opposed impeachment entirely. Broken down into party membership, the poll found:

  • 85 percent of Democrats want Trump removed
  • 39 percent of independents want him removed
  • 13 percent of Republicans want him removed

All those numbers had increased since the same questions were asked by the poll in July. Other polls have similarly found support for impeachment increasing.

While pointing out that ceasefires in Syria historically "have not done very well," Wallace wondered if "this is a ceasefire or is this a surrender that's been negotiated by the US."

The View hosts shudder at creepy-crawly accounts of bedbugs at Trump’s club hosting G7

Published

on

President Donald Trump awarded a government contract to his struggling Florida resort to host next year's G7 summit, and "The View" co-hosts cringed at accounts of the club's bedbug infestation.

The White House insists the president won't make money off the deal, but whatever free advertising he's getting from the most likely unconstitutional venture is being undercut by reminders of a settlement Trump Organization reached with a guest who was bitten by bedbugs.

Published

Hillary Clinton just dropped a bombshell. The former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee who won the popular vote by close to 3 million more votes than the current president is accusing Russia of grooming a current 2020 Democrat, specifically a woman, to launch a third party run for the White House – to ensure Donald Trump wins re-election.

Russia knows they “they can’t win without a third-party candidate,” Clinton told David Plouffe on his podcast Campaign HQ, as Mediaite reports.
