. . .The survey found that 51 percent of voters want Trump impeached and removed from office, while just 40 percent of voters do not want the president impeached. The poll showed a significant jump in those who want Trump’s impeachment from July. At the time, just 42 percent of voters said they want Trump impeached.
However, according to an analysis by the New York Post, the polling firm that conducted the survey — Braun Research — underrepresented Republicans and Independents, therefore skewing the poll’s results.
A more accurate voter representation would have resulted in nearly identical results for pro-impeachment and anti-impeachment support, the Post found[:]
Princeton, New Jersey, pollster Braun Research, which conducted the survey, noted 48% of its respondents were Democrats. But the actual breakdown of party-affiliation is 31% Democrat, 29% Republican and 38% independent, according to Gallup.
A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% opposed it, a Post analysis has concluded.
