Breitbart Trends After Donald Trump Tweets Poll With Almost 98% Support: 'I'm Surprised That Many Breitbarters Took Off Their Hoods to Vote'

Breitbart is trending after President Donald Trump shared a poll from the alt-right website that showed him enjoying an almost 98 percent approval rating.

"THANK YOU!" Trump wrote as he shared a graphic from Breitbart that showed in an impeachment poll, 97.83 percent of respondents "stand with President Trump" while just 2.17 percent of people said they did not.

However, the source of the poll shared by Trump was called into question by numerous users on the social media site, with radio show host Dean Obeidallah commenting: "LOL!!! I'm surprised that many Breitbarters took off their hoods to vote"

Others also jumped in slamming Breitbart for its views, with writer and comedian Nick Jack Pappas adding: "It's official. 97.83% of White Supremacists stand with Trump."

"Trump is promoting a 97% approval rating. From a Facebook poll. By Breitbart," @JoeMyGod wrote, while another user pointed out that the Los Angeles Police Department were so unhappy with one of their recruitment ads appearing on Breitbart that they were investigating, while the president was sharing their polls.

As well as Twitter users questioning why the president would share a poll from such a notorious website, others called into question the validity of the poll when compared with a recent CNN poll conducted by SSRS that shows 47 percent of people back impeachment—a jump from the 41 percent of respondents who felt that way in May this year.

The polls have certainly showed an opinion change when it comes to impeachment following the Ukraine whistleblower allegations that claim Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate a potential political rival, Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden. Aid to the country was also held up around the same time as the president's alleged request.

Additionally a new Quinnipiac National Poll puts Trump's approval rating as president at 41 percent, while the approval for impeaching and removing Trump from office stands at 47 percent.

"FACT: scientifically conducted #poll shows that MORE Americans support impeaching Trump (47%), than not (45%), with large increases among independent and @GOP voters," Dr Dena Grayson, a former Democratic congressional candidate, tweeted.

It is not the first time the president has suggested he is polling well despite more than one poll showing this is not the case. In July, Trump claimed his numbers for the 2020 election were "great" and that polls that showed Biden would do better than him in certain states were "fake."

"We have great internal polling, there were fake polls released by somebody that is—it is ridiculous. We are winning in every single state that we polled. We're winning in Texas very big, in Ohio very big, in Florida very big," he said, according to ABC News.

"They were fake polls that were either put out by the corrupt media, much of the media in this country is corrupt ... Some of it is excellent, some is very bad. Those are fake numbers. You know when you will see that, on election day, on election day, you will see," Trump added.
