“The survey did not include a question about respondents' support or opposition to an impeachment inquiry,” ABC News explained in a Sunday morning article about the results of their new ABC News/Ipsos poll on President Trump’s phone call with Ukraine. Despite not asking about their support for impeachment, chief anchor and Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos appeared on Good Morning America and declared that support for impeachment among Americans was “climbing”.
“We want to get straight to the new developments in the whistleblower investigation that could threaten the Trump presidency, including new poll numbers showing how this story is playing with the American people,” co-anchor Whit Johnson enthusiastically announced at the start of the program, handing it off to co-anchor Dan Harris for some details.
While the headline of the online article was about how only 17 percent of people were surprised by the President’s actions, Harris hyped the poll for asking “whether Trump’s encouraging the president of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son is a serious problem, two-thirds of Americans saying yes, it is.”
