While this is the most partisan impeachment attempt in American history, the Democrat voter base doesn’t have as much faith that it’ll actually accomplish anything as their Democrat Representatives do.
According to a new poll from Rasmussen Reports:
…Just 24% of all Likely U.S. Voters think the upcoming trial in the Senate will result in Trump’s removal from office, and that includes only 12% who say it’s Very Likely. Three-out-of-four voters (73%) say Trump is unlikely to be forced out of the presidency, with 47% who feel it’s Not At All Likely.
Sixty percent (60%) of Democrats see Trump’s removal from office as unlikely, although that compares to 81% of Republicans and 78% of voters not affiliated with either major political party.
Predictably, 69% of Democrats say the bigger problem for pro-impeachment senators is Republican party loyalty, while a nearly identical number (67%) of GOP voters think the bigger roadblock is a lack of convincing evidence against Trump. Unaffiliateds are evenly divided.
Eight out of ten Democrats support Trump’s impeachment and removal, and yet most still view the latter goal as dead on arrival in the Senate. Or to clarify, most correctly view impeachment as DOA in the Senate… assuming Pelosi ever submits the articles of impeachment.
