Poll: Most Oppose Removal of Trump – Say Voters Should Decide in November
The most partisan impeachment attempt in American history is drawing to a close, and it’s about to end just how most expected.
Only a measly 12% of voters think it’s “very likely” that Trump will be removed from office (which is still unusually high for an event that has a 0% chance of occurring) – and the majority of Democrats who want Trump removed don’t think it’ll actually happen. (Admittedly, part of me wishes they had their hopes up).
It became increasingly obvious that the case for impeachment was nonsense as the proceedings progressed, and with that has coincided a continued boost in President Trump’s approval rating. Adam Schiff must’ve noticed that before he recently commented that “the president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.” Translation: we need to remove President Trump from office because we know he’s getting re-elected.
A new poll seems to indicate as much.
According to Rasmussen Reports: Most voters oppose the U.S. Senate’s removal of President Trump from office and say that decision should be left up to them in November. Fifty-two percent (52%) of Likely U.S. Voters believe the president’s fate should be decided by voters in the next election. Just 44% think the Senate should remove him from office instead. Seventy-three percent (73%) of Democrats want the Senate to remove Trump from office as its impeachment trial comes to a close, but 26% think voters should make that call. Seventy-one percent (71%) of Republicans and 61% of voters not affiliated with either major party say Trump’s fate should be decided at the ballot box in November.
If most oppose removing him from office now, they’re going to oppose removing him from office in November with their vote.
It’s obvious who the enthusiasm is for this election cycle. President Trump’s campaign and the RNC raised nearly a half-billion dollars last year, and are currently sitting on $194.8 million in cash on hand while having no debt. The DNC, meanwhile, has $7 million in debt and less than $10 million in cash.
You almost can’t blame Schiff, because impeachment is clearly the only shot Democrats have at taking back the presidency. And that plan is about to go up in smoke as early as tonight.
