A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% opposed it, a Post analysis has concluded.

Fox News is standing by the poll, as the network has released a statement its Vice President of Public Opinion Research Dana Blanton.

“Our polling unit has long been held in high regard for being a nonpartisan source of research. Under the joint direction of Beacon Research (D) and Shaw & Company (R), the latest FNC poll included interviews with randomly chosen registered voters and – as is our standard practice – we reported the partisan distribution we found among the electorate. Braun Research is solely our data collection partner. We stand by our latest poll.”

In response to the poll, which received widespread attention in the media due to the significance of the results, Trump bashed the polling firm and Fox News. (The Blaze)
