    WOW
    Half of American voters want President Donald Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a poll released Sunday from Fox News that was taken as House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against the President.

    I am guessing the "wow" was because it was a Fox news poll. Though many folks feel Fox news is biased in its coverage and reporting, something scientific like a poll is not subject to political bias (unless the pollster wants to fake their results, but Fox news is not know for doing anything like that). It is not at all surprising for a Fox News poll to produce results very much in line with what we are seeing from other reputable polling organizations.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Answered your own question.

    PS...this is not impeachment, this is REMOVAL. And no, that number has not been at 50% in virtually all polls lately. Not for impeachment (mid 40s maybe) nor removal. Not lately. It spiked up back in October then dropped.

    If anyone thinks that 50% is an insignificant number, I've got a couple old pre-core math books laying around.
    This being a FOX poll is actually pretty big in my mind. His base watches, and so does Congress. His base won't change, but there are Senators paying attention. I don't expect a single one of them to change their vote because of this, but at the same time, the analogy is feeling your arm go numb and walking past the ER because you are telling the group you're with you just nailed your funny bone.
    It might not end well for you.
