Since announcing a formal impeachment inquiry in September and holding impeachment hearings in the House Intelligence and Judicial Committees, support for impeaching and removing President Donald Trump from office is now greater than opposition.
Even a recent Fox News poll indicated that 50% of the country wants Trump removed from office.
But the hosts of Fox and Friends—one of the President's favorite shows on the network—could hardly believe the results of their own network's poll, apparently believing their own anti-impeachment spin. Brian Kilmeade was downright "stunned" by the finding.
"It says 50 percent of the country want the President impeached. I was stunned to see that was the number, because I thought that things were trending away, although the President's approval rating did tick up in the same poll, so it's almost like a split personality."
The President must have been equally stunned. He lashed out at Fox News' polling again this weekend.
Though Republicans and hesitant Democrats warned for years that impeaching the President would be politically damning for the Democratic party, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) asserted in September that it was her constitutional mandate to open an impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump.
The President withholding congressionally approved military aid from Ukraine in exchange for its president announcing politically beneficial investigations for Trump was the last straw for Pelosi—and many other Americans.
Around half the country continues to support impeachment as facts continue to exhibit corruption in the White House's dealings with Ukraine.
People weren't stunned that Kilmeade was stunned.
Some pointed out other things that might surprise Kilmeade.
The House is set to vote on articles of impeachment on the floor this week.
