There has been an ongoing debate as to whether or not Donald Trump should be impeached. Of course, that is going to depend on which side of the aisle you’re on. When I look at the answer of that question I look at several things. Let’s look at not one, but all of the polls that have been taken over time on the issue. Let’s break it down as to what Democrats, Republicans, and Independents think, and how that has changed over time. The results are interesting!
Going back to August, 2018, there were 72.3% of Democrats that felt Trump should be impeached. 8.8% of Republicans felt that way, and 36.9% of Independents agreed he should. If you look at what happened when the Mueller Report was made public, the Democrats that felt Trump should be impeached dropped to 67.1%, a decline of 5%. Republicans actually went up to 9.5%, an increase of 0.7%, and Independents also fell, they went down to 33.7%, down 3.2%.
So, what has happened since the Mueller Report was released earlier this past summer? Well, of course this whole whistleblower thing erupted. And Democrats felt it was the biggest chance they had to impeach Trump. That’s what they’ve been telling the world, and it’s having some effect, but not as much as they’d like. While 79.1% of Democrats now fell Trump should be impeached…up 12% since the Mueller Report came out, and 12.5% of Republicans agree, up 3% since Mueller, the telling sign is Independents. You’d figure that Dems would want him impeached, and Republicans wouldn’t, and that holds true. And while Independents numbers went up to 41.5%, a 7.8% increase since Mueller, it’s far below the 50% number.
So, when you see reports that more people are supporting impeachment these days, it’s true…it’s just not a majority of people. In fact, because the Democrats’ number is so high, which is what you’d expect with all of the lying and caterwalling going on, if you take them out of the equation, there’s only about 24% of Americans that feel Trump should be impeached. And if you take the GOP out of the mix because they are equally as biased as the Democrats, almost to the same level, it’s only 41.5% within 5% of their low over the last year.
Here’s the interesting thing the polls aren’t showing you. While there has been a spike with Republicans, and Independents, their numbers have already started to fall off as news that Adam Schiff has been lying about his relationship with this whistleblower, about the fact that Trump has released the transcript of the phone call with the Ukrainian president, and about the fact that it looks like Joe and Hunter Biden is more involved with this than Trump is. The numbers for both the GOP and the Independents are actually reversing and going down. It’s as if these folks realize that it’s just another Chicken Little scream that the sky is falling.
That probably won’t stem the tide of impeachment. It’s interesting to see that the majority of the American public however, isn’t for impeachment, regardless what the media (who’s biased) is telling you! Once again, the truth wins out!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
