A Fox News poll released Sunday indicates that 49% of Americans think President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office.
According to Fox News, “Forty-nine percent want Trump impeached and removed from office, 4 percent say he should be impeached but not removed, and 41 percent oppose impeaching Trump.”
This number is just slightly down from last month’s Fox News poll that showed 51% of Americans wanting Trump impeached and removed. (RELATED: Trump Escalates Attacks Against Fox News)
The president slammed that poll, tweeting that Fox News’ pollsters “suck.”
…Court Justice & I turned him down (he’s been terrible ever since), Shep Smith, @donnabrazile (who gave Crooked Hillary the debate questions & got fired from @CNN), & others, @FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore. It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I’m President!

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has a 5-point lead over Trump, but Fox News notes that is within the margin of error for the poll.
Fox News Poll: As Trump makes gains against Warren and Sanders, only Biden increases his lead from last month.
Biden now leads Trump by 12 (was 10), while Bernie leads by 8 (was 9), and Warren by 5 (was 10).
