New Pew Poll Shows Media’s Impeachment-Mania Moving the Needle


Turn on the television today, and you would find yourself hard-pressed to escape the liberal narrative surrounding President Trump.

Everywhere you turn there’s a new angle on this “formal impeachment inquiry”, (whatever that really means), from Ukraine to Mulvaney, Rudy to Russia.  It seems that if the President were to sneeze without covering his mouth, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would be adding that to the article of impeachment.

This is just another manifestation of the carte-blanche “resistance” against Donald Trump, drummed up by the desperate and vengeful Democratic party, and wholly promoted by their propaganda partners in the mainstream media.

Unfortunately for the nation at large, their impeachment-centric “news” coverage is paying dividends for the Democrats.

The new survey by Pew Research Center, conducted Oct. 1-13 among 3,487 adults, finds that 54% currently approve of the House’s decision to conduct an impeachment inquiry, while 44% disapprove.

Neither party engenders a great deal of confidence that they will be “fair and reasonable” during the impeachment inquiry, the survey finds. About four-in-ten (43%) expect that the Republicans in Congress will be fair in handling the inquiry, while slightly more (47%) say the same about the Democrats in Congress.

The survey, conducted on Pew Research Center’s American Trends Panel, enables us to examine opinions about impeachment among the same group of respondents over the past month. In an earlier wave of the online survey conducted in early September (Sept. 3-15) – before details about Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky were made public and Pelosi announced that the House would be moving forward with the inquiry – respondents were asked a somewhat different question about whether they favored or opposed the House conducting impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump.

In that survey, 50% said they favored the House launching impeachment proceedings, while an identical share was opposed. The vast majority of those who now either approve or disapprove of the House conducting an impeachment inquiry (85%) held similar views in early September.

This survey arrives on the heels of a similar poll by Fox News showing a nearly identical result – one that drew the ire of the President on Twitter.
