Trump: 4-in-10 support impeachment, higher than for Nixon at start of Watergate

Trump: 4-in-10 support impeachment, higher than for Nixon at start of Watergate, by Monmouth University.

Donald Trump’s approval rating has held fairly steady since the last Monmouth University Poll despite recent revelations that family members and campaign aids met with Russian operatives during the 2016 campaign. …

About 4-in-10 Americans currently support impeaching Trump six months into his term, which is significantly higher than the number who called for Richard Nixon’s impeachment six months into that president’s second term. …

Nearly two-thirds of the public believes the Russian government either definitely (36%) or probably (29%) tried to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Just over 1-in-4 say the Russians probably (18%) or definitely (10%) did not interfere. …

This opinion is driven by a huge partisan divide. Specifically, 60% of Republicans believe that Russian interference in the election caused no damage at all to American democracy while only 28% of independents and 6% of Democrats feel the same.

The public continues to be split on whether Trump’s attitude toward Russia does (48%) or does not (48%) present a national security threat to the United States.

The extreme polarization continues, with little middle ground. You either believe what the mainstream media is presenting, or you reject it. Blue pill – red pill.

The methodology used was the one that biases polls left, as before the last Presidential election — see here.
