“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade was flabbergasted on Monday by his network’s newest poll that revealed 50 percent of registered voters think President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office.

“The Fox poll came out, and I was stunned by this: It says 50% of the country want the President impeached,” Kilmeade told his co-hosts. “I was stunned to see that that’s the number because I thought that things were trending away.”

The figure he was referring to was actually the percentage of voters who said “yes” when asked if they want Trump to be both impeached and ousted from the Oval Office. The poll also found that 4 percent said Trump should be impeached but not removed, making the total approval rating for impeachment 54 percent.

Still, the Fox host had some words of comfort for Trump.

“Although the President’s approval rating did tick up in the same poll, so it’s almost like a split personality,” Kilmeade said.

The poll, conducted December 8 to 11, did indeed show an approval rating of 45 percent for Trump, marking a 3-point increase from Fox’s survey in late October.

Correction: This article initially stated that, according to a Fox News poll, 59% of voters think Trump should be impeached. The poll actually found that 54% of voters think Trump should be impeached.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
