Majority of Americans Now Support Impeaching Trump

 
Trump’s impeachment trial begins this week, and more Americans are coming around to the idea. 

A new ABC News/Ipsos poll shows that support for impeaching Trump rose from 47% in late January to 56% last week. The group responded that Trump should be convicted and barred from holding office, whereas 43% said he should not be convicted.

Meanwhile, the attention on Capitol Hill last week focused more on the fate of a new Republican member of Congress who has faced backlash for espousing extremist views and support for the QAnon conspiracy theory in her past. That focus, which followed the deadly insurrection on the U.S. Capitol that Trump is accused of inciting, seems to have taken a toll on the public’s perception of the party. By a 17-point margin, Americans say there are more radical extremists within the GOP than the Democratic Party.

All but five Republican senators have gone on the record saying they think the trial is unconstitutional because of this fact. Still, Democrats have argued that failing to hold Trump accountable would signal to future presidents that they can evade punishment for their actions, as long as they come at the end of their term in office.

    Is this more fake news?

      Anything these days is fake. Informed American was about the only site that helped get the true news out. Lately however, it seems since President Trump is “out of sight, out of mind”, all we get is bad news from his once supporters.
      If President Trump is impeached, and him being a citizen now, what is to stop them from coming after any of the past Republican presidents?
      With all the hogwash coming out of Biden’s mouth about unity and then it’s whatever the democrats want, they will just side step the Republicans and do it all themselves. I say go ahead and then in 2022, when the Republicans gain control of Congress again, then they’ll have their hats in their hands wanting to say how mean it is for the Conservatives to go it without the democrats.

    I don’t believe your poll numbers. I think real americans are tired of the BS and waste of time and money spent on stupid fake impeachment crap. Democrat Unity is a load of BS. It’s their way or the highway and that road leads to China. What happened to real investigative journalists? Apparently they all died in college or sold themselves to socialism and communism.

    Sure that is because ABC are liberals and hate anyone that is not a Democrat ahole. Sure you will get the same by running it on CNN or MSNBC all is FAKE NEWS and a bunch of lies but that is normal for them. We have a fake POTUS who does not even know where he is and others to tell him what to say and do, bet he cant tell you what the 40+ exec order he signed what they are of what is in them. Also wonder who in the WH has to hold his hand in the bathroom. Dems only used him to get a puppet in the office so they could tell him what to say and do, he is nothing but a joke

    Impeach him for what!! The Democrats just seem to enjoy throwing dirty socks at the wall hoping one will stick. For past comments many of them should be censured. He is just so different from the political class they can’t stand it.

    You believe an ABC poll? Over 75 million says they are wrong. Still waiting for Hillary and Obama to be put in jail for their crimes. And don’t forget the crimes of our President elect! Those involved in the Russian Hoax, a couple members of the House and Senators. Why do they get away with it? Democrats? Communist? Even a few of the swampy Republicans!

    Folks, If this is an ABC poll, you know it is not representative of the public views. Therefore, you should stop posting this crap as it may cause someone to start a riot. Dan

    The supreme court clearly played out the requirements fo the act of incitement. That comparison. Makes it quite clear what Trump said that day was not incitement. Where is the question ?

    Anyone who thinks the Democraps are such a great administration, Biden is NOT good for America or the public, they are only good for illegal immigrants who are pouring into our country, Biden has screwed many Americans out of jobs, hes a liar, a thief, and his son is as bad as he is. Pelosi has been in office for decades and like Biden, they have done nothing to improve the lives for Americans. Biden has only been in office for a few weeks, and he is proving what a good President Trump was! They are afraid of conservatives, but its not the conservatives who pull riots, its BLM and ANTIFA who are doing the damage and it’s the Democrap run cities that had the riots and let it slide. I will never call Biden president, if everyone who voted for those traitorist, I hope they suffer all the ridiculous agenda of Bidens administration. Americans needs to stand up and say NO to all the stupid stuff Biden and his administration are doing!

    First of all Impeaching a Former President is not legal. As usual Democrats making their own rules & wasting taxpayer money ! They don’t care about Americans one bit. There is so much corruption in D.C. on both sides it’s sick ! As for the ABC poll on impeaching the President, who did they interview Little George & the rest of the liberal liars there ?

    President Trump has been under attack before he ever was sworn in as President. He has gained support from millions of people like me and the people who are pushing this impeachment through Congress should be impeached themselves.

    You bullshit liars need to peddle your fraudulent lies to the small tiny amount , if your lucky who will believe your lies . Support is growing for Trump and his values and what he did for America. Compared to the mass devastation bumbling Biden has done to America in what ?????? 2 1/2 weeks 3 ??? . He will be lucky if he isn’t impeached before the end of summer . Or even assassinated . He just lucky that the next two choices to take over office . Are even a worse alternative.

    these only prove what the person taking the poll is looking for. I have friends that are democrat that think he got taken to the cleaners by the mail-ins and machine flipping votes and extra votes being added after close all caught on tape that leads to fraud in my mind.

    It may well come to pass that the Republican Senators will regret not voting to impeach Trump . He is no longer much of a political
    asset to the party . If the GOP select a new candidate to run in the next election Trump may form another party as he has indicated he is considering . That will split the republican vote and pretty well kill their chance of a win. If they impeach him now every one will be over it by the time of next election. Republicans should be thinking ahead not protecting the past . Next 4 years could be interesting .

    I don’t know why anyone listens to these idiotic Ipsos polls especially coming from ABC, CBS, or ABC or CNN. I do not know anyone who is for impeaching TRump and I am sure not for it. It is totally unconstitutional.
