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.
The poll prompted Trump to tweet: “Whoever [Fox News’] Pollster is, they suck.”
Braun could not be reached for comment.
