Fifty-one percent of registered voters want Trump to be impeached and removed from office as of October, an increase of nine points from when the poll was last taken in July, according to Fox News. Even Democrats were reserved in their support of hearing the candidates talk about impeachment during the debate with 57 percent saying they should, joined by 43 percent of independents and 29 percent of Republicans.
The visit took place as the impeachment inquiry into Mr. Trump by House Democrats has gathered momentum.
Is the impeachment battle starting to seriously scratch Donald Trump's Teflon? The public is now more closely divided after earlier polls showed majority opposition to impeachment. "Supposedly 51 percent say they want the president either impeached or removed". A poll from Fox News - a channel favoured by United States conservatives - shows 51% back his removal from office.
Kruse's screenshots included a half dozen tweets from when he was campaigning, which was after "the day I announced I was running for President", as he tweeted on Thursday. (Another 4% say they support impeachment but not removal.) Trump said that this pollster "suck [s]". "But@FoxNews is also much different than it used to be in the good old days", Trump wrote.
"With people like Andrew Napolitano, who wanted to be a Supreme Court Justice & I turned him down (he's been bad ever since), Shep Smith, @donnabrazile (who gave Crooked Hillary the debate questions & got fired from CNN), & others, Fox News doesn't deliver for U.S. anymore".
It's unclear if he meant that Fox News doesn'rt deliver for the USA or for Trump supporters ("US") anymore.
Trump concluded: "It is so different than it used to be".
The figures come the same day the President claimed in a tweet that "only 25 percent want the President Impeached, which is pretty low considering the volume of Fake News coverage, but pretty high considering the fact that I did NOTHING wrong".
Trump's attack on Napolitano, a Fox News legal analyst and former friend, is potentially revealing. Smith, for his part, suggested Trump may have violated federal law on live TV. Napolitano has not been shy about criticizing the president's phone call with Ukraine and Twitter activity. "The clear unmistakable inference is that the $391 million in aid would be held up until the favor was delivered".
Congressional investigators see Giuliani as Trump's point man in a campaign to extract dirt on Biden from the Ukrainians. "But my friendship persists".
