Opinion: How Fox News Rigged Their ‘Fake Impeachment’ Poll

Well, I don’t know about you, but I knew a “fake” Fox News impeachment poll was due to hit soon.

I could feel it coming….

The Dems desperately needed an “impeachment boost” and a CNN or MSNBC poll wouldn’t have the same “impact” as a Fox News poll would.

Fox came through for their Dem friends when they needed it most.

Fox News has gone to the “dark side.” I know it’s hard for some people to grasp and accept, because for decades Fox News was our “friend.” But those days are long gone.

When Ailes and Murdoch left, they took the conservative spin with them.

The good ol’ days are over.

Now, we have Murdoch’s uber liberal kids running the show, and things are changing at Fox News – some stuff has changed quickly, other stuff is making a slower turn, but the bottom line is that Fox is not an ally, and the sooner we all accept that and move on, the better.

So, that’s the bad news…

Now, the good news is that the poll claiming that 51% of Americans want Trump impeached is fake – pure garbage.

JUNK.

I will show you what Fox News pollsters did in order to arrive at that number.

Oh, and speaking of the pollster….Fox News used “Braun Research,” and just so you know, they’re owned by progressive activists. *shocker*

You can’t make this stuff up…

Keep in mind, as I explain this poll, we’ll just use “Fox News” as pollster, for the sake of ease.

Now, let me show you what Fox News did in order to get that number magic number. It’s really quite simple.

But before I do, one thing I want you to remember is that polls are a media tool – they’re used to drive ratings, clicks, and agendas. You can manipulate the outcome of your poll in different ways in order to get the poll result you want.

So, in order to arrive at the 51%, Fox News had to monkey around with the sample size of the independent voters.

Here’s what they did:

Independent voters are strongly against impeachment by a large majority.

So Fox News had to keep that indy number low in order to increase the preference for impeachment.

For this poll, they kept the independent sample at a ridiculous 12% – even though independents were a whopping 34% of the 2016 electorate.

That’s a big under-sampling. 

They kept that indy number low, because so many independents are against impeachment. If they sampled 34% independents the poll would be like 62% against impeachment (don’t quote me on that, I am not a mathematician), but you get the picture.

The poll is not an honest representation of the electorate as we know it, so the result is skewed, and it’s also further proof that Fox News is in the tank for Dems and Deep State.

The reaction on Twitter was swift and furious. Take a look:

“Fox has joined the left, probably was inevitable. This poll today is laughable and Americans outside of DC know it.”

“Here’s how Fox rigged the poll. Indies are against impeachment by a large majority. So they kept Indies to 12% of the sample. They were 34% of the 2016 electorate. Rig the demographics, you can rig any poll.”

Breaking down @FoxNews

Impeachment Poll, very misleading! Should Trump be Impeached? 51% Yes 43% No 6% Undecided What they don’t tell you is

Dems 48.1%

GOP 40.1%

INDY 11.8%

47% of INDY’s said no, 39% said yes. INDY’s were 34% of Vote in 2016, not 12% like this poll. FAKE POLL!

“And 95% of Republicans support the President – yeah – that poll’s legit. FOX is turning into CNN – fake news”

“Polled 48% Dems 40% GOP and only 12% IND. Far from a REAL breakdown of the country. Fox News with yet another fake poll so they can fit in with their other “media” buddies.”

Bottom line is this – if you’re still showing loyalty to Fox News, now is the time to cut the ties.

You can catch Hannity, Laura or Tucker on Youtube and get your news from OANN, or other sources online.

Personally, I #DumpedFox years ago, and I’ve never looked back.
