Voter Support for Impeachment Grows Amid Trump's Ukraine Scandal

September 26, 2019
Backing for impeachment increases by 13 net points since the weekend

Voter support for impeachment matched its highest point of Donald Trump’s presidency as he faced a whistleblower allegation that he pressured Ukraine’s president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, with more impeachment supporters than ever before saying he committed an impeachable offense, according to Morning Consult/Politico polling.

The new Sept. 24-26 poll of 1,640 registered voters — conducted as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) endorsed an impeachment inquiry and details emerged about the president’s pressure on Ukraine — found the public divided at 43 percent on the question of whether Congress should begin proceedings to remove Trump from office, a net swing of 13 percentage points in favor of impeachment since a poll conducted over the weekend. The figure for support rose 7 points, while opposition dropped 6 points.


  • Fox News Poll Shows America Is ‘Exhausted’ And Wants Trump Gone

    Donald Trump hasn’t even been in the White House for three years, but a new poll shows that America is already tired of his presidency.

    According to a Fox News survey, the Trump administration has left 52 percent of the country feeling exhausted. Only 37 percent say this president has made them feel energized about politics.

    The finding tracks with Trump’s alarmingly high disapproval rating, which stands at 54 percent. Just 45 percent of those surveyed approve of his job performance.

    Fox News also found that the American people are starting to feel increasingly uncomfortable about the nation’s economic situation. Nearly half of respondents say the current economy makes them feel “nervous,” while 37 percent feel “confident” about it.

    The economy that Donald Trump inherited from Barack Obama and Joe Biden is the only thing keeping his numbers from completely falling through the floor.

    But as his trade war continues to push the U.S. toward an economic slowdown – already costing the country 300,000 jobs – Trump is on the verge of losing the only thing that has kept his reelection campaign afloat up to this point.

    Trump has sucked the life out of America

    In 2016, there was a lot of energy surrounding Trump’s candidacy. It was largely negative energy, but it was energy nonetheless.

    But now that Trump has had time to show the country what type of president he is – a corrupt, petty, unstable, incompetent and unfit one – the American people are tired.

    Voters are sick of having a president who – day in and day out – throws toddler tantrums on Twitter, spreads hatred at his MAGA rallies and devotes so much of his schedule to golfing and cable news watching.

    Having Trump in the political arena may have been entertaining and laughable in the beginning, but it’s gradually taken its toll on the country over the past three years.

    The American people are ready to replace the morally and intellectually bankrupt game show host in the White House with a stable adult.
