The president appeared to be referring a New York Post analysis that said the poll underrepresented Republican and independent voters. The Post said if the poll was weighted correctly, it would have found 44.9 percent of respondents in support of impeachment and 44.4 percent against.
There has been no correction released from Fox News.
Opponents to the poll have cited the number of Democratic respondents in the poll as the reason for the impeachment numbers. Forty-eight percent of participants were Democrat, 40 percent were Republican and 12 percent identified as independent or other.
