REPORT: Fox News ‘Misrepresented’ Impeachment Poll To Make Trump Look Bad

Things continue to go from bad to worse for Fox News, which once served as staunchly conservative media company.
Last week, Fox News released a poll claiming that 51 percent of voters in America wanted President Donald Trump impeached and removed from office.
The poll also claimed that only 4 percent want Trump impeached but want him to stay in office, and 40 percent of voters oppose impeachment.
But according to analysis from the New York Post, Fox greatly “mispresented” their poll by suggesting a majority of Americans supported impeaching the president.
Braun Research, the pollster firm that conducted the survey, noted that 48 percent of its respondents were Democrats.
However, the “actual breakdown” based on party affiliation is 31 percent Democrat, 29 percent Republican, and 38 percent independent.
The Post noted that when weighing the poll for party affiliation, only 44.9 percent of Americans, or less than a majority, back impeachment of Trump.
Forty-four percent of Americans oppose impeachment, according to the Post‘s analysis.
The president also blasted Fox News for the poll.
“Whoever their Pollster is, they suck. But @FoxNews is also much different than it used to be in the good old days,” Trump wrote in a tweet this week.
Trump added, “@FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore. It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I’m President!”
...Court Justice & I turned him down (he’s been terrible ever since), Shep Smith, @donnabrazile (who gave Crooked Hillary the debate questions & got fired from @CNN), & others, @FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore. It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I’m President!

One America News Network's Emerald Robinson had an interesting theory about the Fox poll.
Robinson tweeted that former House Speaker Paul Ryan, who now serves as a board member of the Fox News parent company Fox Corp., hired a “polling firm run by liberal activists.”
Robinson said that the poll serves as “cover for GOP to impeach Trump.”
Is it possible that Fox News is being run by liberals who are desperately trying to help take down Trump and prevent him from serving a second term in office?
