    Pew Poll Stacked with Democrats Backing Impeachment

    "A new Pew Research poll that claims 54 percent of registered voters support the impeachment of President Donald Trump is stacked with Democrat respondents, according to a review of its methodology by Newsmax."

    "Buried in the survey results is the fact that of the 3,487 respondents, 1,942 are Democrats or are Democratic leaning while 1,453 are Republicans or Republican leaning. That means 56 percent of those polled were Democrats compared to 42 percent who identified as Republicans — a 14 percent margin favoring Democrats."

    "Frank Luntz, a veteran American political consultant and pollster, questioned the validity of the poll."

    “Self-identified Democrats outnumber self-identified Republicans by about 6 percent nationally. The sample for this poll leans a bit too Democratic to accept these numbers as gospel,” Luntz told Newsmax. “When the questions are about impeachment, you have a responsibility to ensure an accurately balanced sample.”

    "Further, Pew told Newsmax, "The survey is intended to reflect the views of all Americans, and so groups are sized to reflect their actual share in the population. Among the general public, a larger share of adults identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party than identify with or lean toward the Republican Party."

    That last bit there is why polls are nothing but propaganda.

    And the incredible thing is the Dim Dems and Loony Libs CONTINUE to believe these "polls" after what happened in the 2016 presidential election. ALL polls had Killery with a substantial lead going into the day of the election.

    Democrats are caught lying, cheating and distorting the truth in almost every case.

    If they really had half the good hand they claim, they wouldn't need to make things up.

    Your article is nothing but propaganda.

    if you go to the actual Pew poll they explain their weighting process to account for the fact their poll has more Dems than Repubs. The numbers give by your far right-wing rag are the unweighted numbers.

    Using that same logic, why do you think Trump lies so often?

    All political polls have but one purpose and that is to sway voters. Stop lying.

    Confidence. Bravado. Salesmanship. The way he sees things. He's a businessman selling a product: America. But so far, I still have not heard him say a single untruth that raised my health insurance by $2500, killed four American diplomats or caused us to leak 10,000 secrets to our enemies through an unsecured email server.

    BS..

    Numerous sources have called Pew out on this BS poll.

    I read it last week.

    ANY poll can manipulated to achieve a desired result. First year political science student is taught this. In fact our HS daughters have been taught this...not a public school though.
