Well, that was unexpected.

Democrats continue to debate whether it is worth it to bring impeachment against Donald Trump in the House, but if shocking poll numbers from a surprising source have any impact, that debate may end sooner than expected.

As recently as yesterday the division between the leadership of the party, such as Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and the more visible new progressive members like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is, in AOC’s words, “very real.”

But in AOC’s favor, a new Fox News poll of registered voters released Sunday showed 43 percent favor impeaching President Trump and removing him from office. Among those who responded that they do not want him removed, 12% still said they favored impeachment.

That represents a further 7% overall, or as the image below from the poll breakdown shows, a total of 50% who favor impeachment.

Okay then, if half of the viewers on Fox agree that Trump should be impeached is there really any excuse for not going forward with it? 

If you thought that there is no way that Trump can ignore this, you are so right.  

I’m sorry, Fox News polls are always bad for him?

On what planet is that true?

    His logic is very odd: He says Fox polls are bad for him and were bad for Hillary??? Well, she “lost” according to him, so doesn’t that validate the Fox polls? If so, why his he just waving off that they are bad for him? Why is he not asking, “Holy Crap, how can I turn this around? What am I doing wrong?” But he is incapable of such thinking, we know. So, Fox polls showing that he has problems lifts my spirits.

    “Some readers will wonder how we could possibly eliminate a candidate so far before an election, and before knowing the identity of his opponent,” “Because there’s no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump.”

    “The president is famously obsessed with ratings, always quick to criticize the ratings of news networks and personalities who in his view cover his administration unfairly, and to cheer ratings for his favorite cable channel, Fox News, or for interviews featuring himself or his family.”

    the group opted to file their federal suit, which claims Hill engaged in sexual harassment, retaliation, gender discrimination, battery, defamation, and invasion of privacy.

    Hill is a far-right social conservative who has worked to undermine reproductive health access, marriage equality for same-sex couples, medical marijuana, needle exchange programs, and voting rights. He has frequently advised President Donald Trump on law enforcement issues and has been praised by Vice President Mike Pence for “working very closely with our administration” on that subject.

    OT/ ” CBPP Vice President for Health Policy Aviva Aron-Dine noted this is one of the “most sweeping” federal actions affecting poor and modest Americans. The administration would also be undermining some of its own policy priorities, including addressing the rising cost of prescription drugs.

    The ultimate irony, said Aron-Dine, is that by making the hardship worse, it makes it seem like fewer people are poor. But in reality, there’s strong evidence to suggest that the current poverty line underestimates what poor families need and that these families experience higher inflation than the general population as a whole”

    If McCain would have won in 08 for 8 years, none of this would be happening. Sarah would have made Big Gulps the national beverage, made vegetables and fruit obsolete, and made every backyard in america have an oil drill.
