(Newser) – A new Fox News poll delivered bad news for President Trump, showing that 51% of respondents supported his impeachment and removal from office. It caught the attention of Trump himself, who clearly wasn't pleased. "Whoever their Pollster is, they suck," the president tweeted, adding that Fox "is also much different than it used to be in the good old days." Echoing a complaint he delivered in August, the president wrote that the network "doesn't deliver for us anymore," per the Hill.

Despite Trump's criticism, Fox's bipartisan polls "are among the most reputable in the industry," according to Politico. Democrat Chris Anderson and Republican Daron Shaw have conducted the polls since 2010, and they're managed at Fox by Dana Blanton, Chris Stirewalt, and Arnon Mishkin, all of whom were the subject of a recent profile in the Los Angeles Times. A Trump campaign spokesman complained that nearly half of the respondents were Democrats, but "that is consistent with their past surveys and mountains of other research that show that more Americans identify as Democrats than Republicans," per Politico.
