Liberal actress Rosie O’Donnell was forced to delete her poll on Twitter meant to show that there was support for the impeachment of President Donald Trump after it said the opposite.
The decidedly unscientific poll showed instead that a majority of respondents didn’t want the president to be impeached.
O’Donnell tweeted the poll on Sunday with the question, “should trump [sic] be impeached.”
She later deleted the poll after supporters of the president began tweeting screenshots of the embarassing results.
In one screenshot, 58 percent out of more than 272,000 respondents said they didn’t want the president to be impeached, while another 42 percent said he should.
Twitter polls are hardly representative of public opinion, but the attempt to manifest public support of impeachment backfired on the vehement opponent of the president.
A poll from HarrisX and The Hill published on Wednesday showed that support for the president had risen to a high for the year of 49 percent. On the other hand, a Morning Consult poll said that support for impeachment had grown greatly by 7 points to 43 percentage points.
