New Poll Shows Majority of Americans Don't Want Impeachment for Trump

As you have read, the DC Dem leadership is trying to get Dems to stop talking impeachment and focus on issues. Yet, with their base hating Trump, you might think beating the impeachment drums might be an effective GOTV strategy.  The Media is beating those drums so maybe this is a two pronged approach by the Dem leadership and their operatives in the Media. 

 

Well, the Dems are animated by polls and this public poll might echo some private polling the Dems have seen. 

 

A majority, 51% of those who participated in this poll are not in favor of impeaching Trump (5% unsure). And within the 44% of those who support impeachment, the strongest feelings are amongst the cohorts which the Dems can assume are "locked in" Dem votes. So the Dem impeachment advocates are out of step with voters. 

 

Exit question: This is an online poll of "adults" (not registered nor likely voters) which history has shown skew left. With that in mind, how much discipline do you think Dems in competitive districts can muster through Election Day? 

 

ETA: The poll is about 83% likely/registered voters and relatively balanced on party affiliation. 

 

New Poll Shows Majority of Americans Don't Want Impeachment for Trump

After Michael Cohen's plea deal and the resurfacing of his allegations that Donald Trump ordered the attorney to pay off women with whom Trump had affairs, a new poll shows that although a majority of Americans surveyed believe Cohen, a majority do not favor impeachment.

 

Axios and Survey Monkey conducted the online poll, which surveyed 4,362 adults and demonstrates some interesting findings. A total of 64 percent of those surveyed believe that Cohen is telling the truth, but only 44 percent support impeachment proceedings against the president.

As with the Brennan, Comey clearance issue we’ve seen the Dems and MSM move away from Impeachment. If the Dems take the House, it will fire up again, just because...

You betcha they will, but I'm hoping the don't take the House!

 

... then in 2019 they will have to just shut up, because using the I-word instead of chatting up their chance to re-take the WH would just be stupid.  Oh wait a sec, what did Forrest say about stupid?

There are many reasons Hillary lost in 2016 but IMO the greatest one was the hate filled “Trump is a nasty man” campaign conducted by the DNC and their ally, the mainstream media.  Between the two, they gave America a million and one examples of why Trump is a nasty man and shouldn’t be elected yet at the same time they didn’t give us one single reason why Hillary was 1) a better person and 2) why we should vote for her, other than she was the first ever woman (which she wasn’t) presidential candidate in the general election instead of voting for  Donald Trump.  It seems to me the media and the Democratic party had forgotten, and still are forgetting, one basic fact about America, historically speaking, Americans love supporting the underdog and IMMHO that is why Hillary didn’t win.  As it turns out, President Trump is doing an awfully good job at the White House and it’s going to take a lot more than doubling down on the  “Trump is a nasty man” or an “Impeach the President” campaign to unseat him.  Makes me ask, didn’t the democrats learn anything from Hillary’s 2016 disaster?

They didn’t, which explains why they are suffering from TDS, otherwise they would have to contend with all the points you made.

I don't think the Democrats realize what will happen when they over throw a duly elected President through lies and deception as they are attempting now. When the ballot box and soap box is no longer considered the way to replace those that are systematically building an oppressive government, the people will only be left with the only solution the founders gave them.

 

"What country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? let them take arms. the remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. what signify a few lives lost in a century or two? the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. it is it’s natural manure." Thomas Jefferson

Trump will not be impeached. 

 

Even if the Dems take a House majority, it is possible they won’t get a simple majority needed to forward articles of impeachment to the Senate. 

 

And rhey will never, based on what we know now, get a 2/3 super majority in the Senate, even a 50/50 Senate. 

 

And Trump won’t resign.
