Trump Could Get Impeachment Boost, Poll Shows

Thursday, 22 August 2019 04:18 PM

Democrats beware: A huge majority of Americans believes impeaching President Donald Trump would fail and some believe it might even boost his re-election effort, according to a new Monmouth University poll.

The survey showed that 75% of respondents believed it would be unlikely that Trump would be convicted in the Republican-controlled Senate even if he were impeached by the Democratic-led House.

Moreover, 31% think an attempt would put him in a stronger position in 2020, compared with 23% who said it would weaken him.

There was an additional note of caution for House Democrats who are considering impeachment: Some 51% said it would be a bad idea to move forward, while 34% said a failed attempt would put them in a weaker position to retain control of the chamber.

None of this means the president is receiving high marks. More than half of Americans do not approve of his job performance, about as many as in previous surveys, and 57% of registered voters say “it is time to have someone new in the Oval Office.”
