The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll found that by 11 points more voters want to impeach and remove Trump than support him.
Via The Washington Post:
The poll finds that 49 percent of Americans say the president should be impeached and removed from office, while 47 percent say he should not. That finding is almost identical to support for impeachment in a poll by The Post and the Schar School taken earlier in October.
The president enters the next phase of the impeachment process with approval ratings that are low but unchanged overall. Less than 4 in 10, or 38 percent, of Americans say they approve of the way he is handling his job, the same level as a survey in September. The numbers are almost identical among registered voters. Meanwhile, 58 percent disapprove of Trump’s job performance and 48 percent strongly disapprove.
Trump’s disapproval among independents stands at 57 percent and rises to 91 percent among self-identified Democrats.
The president’s numbers have taken a nosedive in Pennsylvania, and things are looking even worse for him nationally. There is always some caution because, with the help of Russia, Trump squeaked out a “win” in 2016, but he is even less popular now than he was then. More people want him removed from office than support him, which is a clear sign that Democrats aren’t being hurt by impeachment.
Impeachment is the will of the majority.
