A new ABC News/Washington Post opinion poll released on Friday morning has a lot of bad news for the president. In the poll, disapproval of Donald Trump is at a record high, with fully 60% of voters saying they disapprove of his performance in office. And with 53% saying they “strongly disapprove” of Trump the news could hardly be worse for him or the Republican Party with just two months until the watershed midterm elections.
A new Axios/Survey Monkey poll released Tuesday reveals 44 percent of respondents want Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump, including 49% of independent voters. Fully 79 percent of Democrats but just 8 percent of Republicans want an impeachment trial to begin in the U.S. House of Representatives.
It is 208 days until November 6, 2018, the date of the midterm elections. After the votes are counted it is likely (assuming Russia has not hacked our voting machines) that Democrats will re-take control of the U.S. House of Representatives, and Nancy Pelosi will be re-installed as Speaker of the House.
