Please pay no attention to the Politico/Morning Consult Poll on impeachment. It is a disgrace.

1 min read

You are going to be seeing a lot of reporting today on the Politico/Morning Consult Poll on impeachment this morning.  I urge you to take this with a very large grain of salt (and maybe a couple of aspirin) and keep it out of any discussions about impeachment.

Here is what they offered as a yes or no question,

“Do you believe Congress should or should not begin impeachment proceedings to remove president Trump from office.”

This is how the question was portrayed in the report. They did not have a link to the actual poll.  I have looked because it boggles the mind they would use such bad methodology.  I mean there is bad methodology and there is idiocy.

First, as you might notice, this is not a yes or no question. Second I am still puzzling over what yes means and what no means. If this was the question, assuming the people at Politico//Morning Consult are not complete idiots it was purposefully written to get confusing results. The media continues its campaign against impeachment. Sigh.
