According to President Donald Trump, the vast majority of Americans don’t want him impeached, and support for impeachment is “down into the 20’s in some Polls.”
But that’s simply not true.
Here’s the tweet Trump posted Monday morning:
Support for Impeachment is dropping like a rock, down into the 20’s in some Polls. Dems should now get down to work and finally approve USMCA, and much more!

However, David Martosko of the Daily Mail notes that the lowest percentage of support for impeachment in any current poll is 43 percent, which comes from a Emerson University sample released just last week:
The lowest support for impeachment in any public poll since they started coming out in September is 43% (Emerson University poll last week). None of those surveys has ever shown that 50% of the country or more opposes impeachment. https://t.co/1d8rNTKnoe

Others on social media then joined in ridiculing Trump’s fake poll numbers:
I have not seen a single poll showing support for impeachment in the 20s.

As he has done before, the president is referring to what polls show *only about Republican respondents* not voters in general. https://t.co/VZ4yw3eEuO

Some polls without a link. I guess the link is inside your head.

If this were true in any way, you would have links or pictures.
It’s a lie.
It’s always a lie.

I think it’s a poll of his own family members. 20% of them want him thrown in jail.

I️ thought you didn’t believe in polls.
But since that appears to have changed, support for YOU is down to the low 30’s in some polls.
