New Poll: 49% of Public in Favor of Impeaching Trump
Public Policy Polling’s newest national poll finds a record level of support for
impeaching Donald Trump. 49% of voters support impeaching him, to 41% who are opposed to doing so. This marks the 6th month in a row the polling firm has found a plurality of voters in favor of impeaching Trump, and it’s the closest to a majority.
Trump’s approval rating has declined by a net 7 points in the last month. In September the firm found him at a -11 spread with 42% of voters approving of him to 53% who disapproved. Now he’s at -18 with 38% of voters approving of him to 56% who disapprove.
When it comes to hypothetical match ups for reelection in 2020. He trails Joe Biden by 18 at 56/38, Bernie Sanders by 15 at 53/38, Cory Booker by 11 at 49/38, Elizabeth Warren by 10 at 50/40, Kirsten Gillibrand by 10 at 48/38, Kamala Harris by 6 at 45/39, and Frederica Wilson by 3 at 42/39.
PPP generally polls for Democrats, but I have long considered them top-notch pollsters.
On an anecdotal basis, I recently had an interaction that supports the climbing desire to impeach Trump.
I had a meeting with a top exec at a very conservative Fortune 500 company. He is a diehard Republican and was a staunch supporter of Trump once he won the primary.
For the first few months of the Trump presidency, he continued to be a Trump supporter. But I ran into him last week and the first thing he said to me was, "I hope they impeach Trump."
I think it is a combination of Trump buffoonery and the media continuing to beat up on him, but things don't look good for The Donald.
