After daring to invite Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and ex-FBI Director James Comey on its morning program, President Donald Trump’s favorite network gave him another black eye on Sunday.

A new Fox News poll shows that 50 percent of registered voters believe Trump ought to be impeached and removed from office, while 46 percent said he shouldn’t. Of that 46 percent, nine percent said Trump should be impeached but not removed.

Trump, who threw a fit on Saturday over Fox’s decision to have Schiff and Comey on Chris Wallace’s morning show, had a similarly sour response to the unflattering numbers.

“The @foxnewPolls [sic], always inaccurate, are heavily weighted toward Dems,” Trump tweeted. “So ridiculous – same thing happened in 2016. They got it all wrong. Get a new pollster!”

Fox surveyed 1,000 registered voters nationwide from December 8 to 11. The poll’s margin of error is +/- three points.

The House is slated to vote on its two articles of impeachment this week before handing off the rest of the process to the Senate.
