Long thought to be political kryptonite for Democrats, public support is gaining for President Donald Trump's impeachment, as even Fox News's polling indicates.

According to the poll, not only do a majority of Americans (55%) support the impeachment, but a slim majority of Americans (51%) support the greater step of Trump's full impeachment and removal from office.

The poll shows a nine point jump in support for impeachment and removal since July—before revelations regarding a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which Trump urged Zelensky to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. A transcript of the phone call released by the White House itself and the contents of a whistleblower complaint regarding the call bolstered public support for the impeachment inquiry launched a little over two weeks ago by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Predictably, Donald Trump took to Twitter crying foul.

His supporters continued to claim that the poll was unfair because 48% of the people sampled considered themselves Democrats while only 40% considered themselves Republicans. This breakdown isn't immediately apparent in the poll, nor did his supporters provide the source of the information. However, 47% of Americans consider themselves Democrats, so 48% of the sample size identifying as Democrats is proportionate to the populace.

What's more, those answering the poll were randomly selected, so a plurality of Democrats in the sample says more about the diminishing popularity of the Republican party than it does of the poll's integrity.

Nevertheless, the President's allies attempted to spin it.

But few people were buying the spin.

It's not the first time Trump has cited Fox News as an example of literal math being biased against him.

Good luck with that.

Crozier sent a letter to the Navy this week begging for additional supplies and resources to aid the 93 people on the Roosevelt who tested positive for the virus that's become a global pandemic, as well as facilities for the additional 1000 people who need to be quarantined.

The Trump campaign was roasted recently when it sent a cease and desist order to a PAC called Priority USA for using audio clips of Trump in an ad to highlight the numerous times he dismissed the virus that's caused a public health crisis in the United States.

Now, the campaign's attempt at revenge with a recent tweet may turn out to be ill advised.

President Donald Trump and his administration's reaction to the global pandemic has been widely panned for its original dismissal of the virus's threat and the reluctance to use federal powers to assist afflicted states.

Trump responds to these criticisms by reminding people every chance he gets that he suspended travel from China—the epicenter of the virus at the time—on February 2.

For weeks, on-air personalities at Fox News parroted President Donald Trump and his administration's dismissals of the virus that's upended daily life in the United States.

The President finally started acknowledging the threat posed by the virus, yet still refuses to take responsibility for his administration's lack of preparedness. Despite multiple warnings that the United States wasn't prepared for a pandemic, the administration took little action in the early stages of the outbreak, when containing it was more feasible.
