The sad transformation of Fox News into just another propaganda arm for the Democrats is ongoing and now the network is even running scam impeachment polls.
Fox is now only a shadow of the staunchly conservative beacon of truth that it was built into by the legendary Roger Ailes and with the passing of the torch from Rupert Murdoch to his liberal sons it often mimics CNN.
But the hostility to President Trump from a network that he was a frequent guest on before he was elected continues to alienate once-loyal viewers; many of them over a bogus poll that just blew up in Fox’s face.
The stage was set when the network’s poll showing that “over half” of voters want to see the 2016 election nullified and Trump removed from office which was picked up by the rest of the anti-Trump media.
According to @FoxNews, over half of American voters want Trump removed from office. His erratic policy and insane pronouncements re: ISIS, Syria, and the Kurds only underline the fact that every Republican senator knows: Donald Trump is not fit for office. https://t.co/4W65xq82Y3

According to Fox:
Just over half of voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a Fox News Poll released Wednesday.
A new high of 51 percent wants Trump impeached and removed from office, another 4 percent want him impeached but not removed, and 40 percent oppose impeachment altogether. In July, 42 percent favored impeachment and removal, while 5 percent said impeach but don’t remove him, and 45 percent opposed impeachment.
But as the old saying goes, “the devil is in the details” and those details show that Fox’s number crunchers conducted a sham poll that oversampled Democrats and is therefore just more anti-Trump propaganda.
The president slammed the rigged poll via Twitter where he blasted the wishy-washy network for using pollsters that “SUCK.”
…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!

Conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh also called out Fox’s poll as garbage on his nationally syndicated show on Thursday.
So I wonder, how does this happen? And I wonder what effect it has on people. I know Fox has been losing favor with conservatives for a while, for obvious reasons. I mean, I can’t look at that network anymore without seeing Donna Brazile staring back at me. I’m saying, “Why do I need to watch Fox to see or hear what Donna Brazile thinks? Who’s next, The Forehead? Are Carville and Forehead gonna be given a show?”
So, anyway, I looked at the breakdown of the poll, the percentage of Republicans and Democrats, only 48% of the Fox News sample is Democrat, 40% of the Fox News poll sample is Republican, and 12% are the precious and we couldn’t live without them independents.
Now, the Fox News poll, I think you have to understand, they are not just polling Fox News viewers. A lot of people misunderstand that. Fox News has a polling unit that’s like every other mainstream media polling unit, and it is in that universe that the Fox News poll operates and competes. And that’s what’s newsworthy about the poll. This poll has given CNN and all the other Drive-By Media outlets just a golden opportunity to point to it and say, “See? It’s true. Trump’s losing support. The people are finally seeing the truth about Trump.”
Roger Ailes must be spinning in his grave.
With the entire media establishment now being mobilized to foist off the fraudulent and unconstitutional Pelosi-Schiff impeachment inquiry, it is no longer possible for Fox and even the Drudge Report – which has also gone anti-Trump – to pretend that they are honest while being in the bag for the enemies of America.
Sadly, low-information types and those who still believe that the mainstream media isn’t the mouthpiece for the CIA-Deep State will buy into this bill of goods.
Fortunately, despite an ongoing crusade to censor conservatives from social media and shame them elsewhere, America still has a strong independent media to turn to for the truth.
