Posted on 10/12/2019 7:23:34 PM PDT by Its All Over Except ...
The poll released last week by Fox News that claimed most Americans favor the impeachment of President Trump underrepresented Republicans and Independents, The Post has found.
The poll said 51% of voters were in favor of 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% oppose it, a Post analysis has concluded.

This is one of the reasons Shep is gone. This is ruiness to their reputation.
Isn’t NY Post also owned by NewsCorp, owner of Fox News?
Somewhere is a business that once had CNN on all the time, but has now slowly begun to feel comfortable with Fox News on.
Good that the Post took the trouble to perform an assessment and publish the results.
But Shep was also ruiness to his own reputation.
I guess he grew tired of the ever-present double whammy.
I’ll beat you to it, Windflier.
I knew in my gut it was spelled differently but did it anyway.
RE: A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% oppose it
This still tells me that about half of the country want Trump removed from office.
Nothing much has changed since 2016. This country is as divided as ever.
Thanks. But I tell you the spellchecker on this system makes weird changes and this is not the first time.
MSM polls are meant to shape public opinion NOT to reflect it. No MSM poll regarding the 2016 election was even close.
Even after so-called attenuation to normalize sampling.
Reason, most people who support President Trump do not respond to pollster calls. And, many who do LIE to the pollsters as a FU to them.
Same applies to Exit polls. We simply do not cooperate. So, those polls are off base and more importantly, they are meaningless.
Yes. Not only that, but I know of no statistical methodology to justify the false report based on over-sampling Democrats. I think Trump calls it "fake news".
The question remaining is, what recourse do we or Trump have in order to put a stop to this garbage? The malicious intent should be obvious.
“A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% oppose it, a Post analysis has concluded.”
Which is still bad ... particularly if 44.9% favor impeachment AND removal from office.
35% is the absolutists
Interesting. Murdoch owns both.
And your point?
OF Course Democrats want Trump Impeached, Removed, Assassinated, Dead from Cancer, WHATEVER, to have him not be President.
Who is surprised?
Also of note... if you correct the weights, Trump and Biden are tied.
“this system (if you mean FR) has no spellchecker. the problem is all yours. “
Yes, there is spell checker on the posting box
