With more details being released about President Trump’s call with the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky public opinion on impeachment is shifting.

A new Fox News poll shows support for impeachment at an all-time high. The poll surveyed 1,003 registered voters between October 6th and October 8th. The results find that a majority of voters support Trump’s impeachment. This is a significant increase from the last Fox News conducted poll which only had 42 percent support removing the President from office.

The survey proves that Americans are changing their opinion because of the attempt to put the blame on other political rivals primarily Joe Biden. According to the results 38 percent said they were extremely troubled by the Ukraine situation surrounding the President. When asked if they though what Trump said on the call with the President of Ukraine was an impeachable offense 43 percent agreed.

Fox News certainly is pro Trump so it is surprising to see these results broadcast on their programs. The President which has already had a rocky relationship with the station tweeted “Whoever their Pollster is, they suck.” This is not the first time Trump has called out Fox News on Twitter. Back in August the station published a poll that showed him polling below 40 percent agains Democratic frontrunners.

I found this article well written. The use of visuals showing how opinion has changed since June of 2018 gives the reader an idea of how quick opinion has changed. Also included are the Tweets from the President that give the reader an opportunity to view them on Twitter.

  1. You don’t need to take quite so much from the article, Matthew. Just summarize and paraphrase.

    I tell students to stay away from the word “prove.” Nothing is ever proven. Everything is up for debate.
