    How do you think?

    I have heard a few times on TV statements like this
    "How do you think, is it possible that ....?
    Is such sentence correct? I know that usually there should be "what do you think .....?".

    It's possible though you probably heard it from non-natives, or some subculture.

    Are you sure it wasn't "How do you think it is possible to...?" This is a possible construction.

    This is possible. Maybe I haven' t heard it properly.
    Is version with "that" also correct:
    "How do you think it is possible that...?"
