Gallup: 52% say impeach Trump. Fake news? Vote now!

This headline on Drudge this morning was jarring:

GALLUP: 52% SUPPORT REMOVAL

Immediately, Grassfire staff wondered, "How could that be?" Our recent "IMPEACH?" QuickPoll showed that 98% of our team members reject the idea of removing President Trump from office. While we can find comfort in knowing that Gallup and so many other pollsters were dead wrong in 2016, the possibility that a majority of Americans may favor impeachment IS concerning.

So, Grassfire decided to take a look at the "fine print." Inside Gallup's online article (see the link below) there's a box near the bottom that you have to click on to read about the poll's "Survey Methods." When you do that, you can see that "the margin of sampling error is ±3 percentage points" for their Trump impeachment poll. That means it's very likely 49% of Americans, less than half, want our Commander-in-Chief removed from office.

That might be a small victory, but it's still a victory for the President and everyone else who supports him. One week before Donald Trump won the 2016 election, even his most favorable polls gave him just a 25% chance of winning. That's why Grassfire wants to know if our team members consider this recent Gallup poll to be more "fake news" about Mr. Trump. Please, take a moment to make your voice heard in our new "Fake News?" QuickPoll.

If you think the new Gallup poll is "fake news," click here or on the "YES!" image below. If you think a majority of Americans support impeachment and Gallup is not reporting "fake news," click here or on the "NO!" image below.

 

There are actually a couple of silver linings in the Gallup article for the President. First, their polling indicates that only 6% of Republicans support impeachment. That's a far cry from the 20% to 30% reported in the "mainstream media" recently. Second, Gallup says, "87% of Republicans ... approve of the job Trump is doing."

Grassfire is hoping those numbers are NOT "fake news." But we still wonder if the overall impeachment numbers are. Please let us know what you think by taking action today in Grassfire's "Fake News?" QuickPoll.

Thanks, in advance, for voting.

For liberty and limited government,

    I have lost faith in the media, hollywood, and now, polls. I am grateful that President Trump uses means to tell Americans the truth about what is happening to our Democracy. As a former educator, I am even disturbed how teachers and professors are twisting the truth and misinforming our youth. Schools and colleges and universities should be bastions of truth, not opinion.

    Still though polls usually have a range of accuracy. It seems pretty difficult to believe that they arrived at 52% unless they interviewed almost all democrats and a few independents. I did not see you Post your results and numbers responding. Please do so or direct me to the release date of your poll.

    Another issue is how many registered Democrats were in the poll vs. how many registered Republicans and Independents? A lot of current polls have used 48% Democrat, 40% Republican and 12% Independent which tilts the whole Poll in favor of the Dems.

    I assume they think that 48% of voters are Democrat which is bogus as the Dems have lost a lot (my WAG is 8-12%, or more) of their registered Voters due to the ultimate stupidity of 3 years of coup d’etat they have manufactured, on President Trump.

    Dems, who still think Rationally, will simply NOT vote, or vote for President Trump.

    Their bogus Impeachment “Star Chamber” has to tick off “Rational” Democrats.
