The level of contempt and derision that people have for President Donald Trump is growing by the minute. An increasing percentage of voters want Congress to impeach President Donald Trump — even if they don’t think Trump has committed the “high crimes and misdemeanors” the Constitution requires.
A whopping 43 percent of voters want Congress to begin impeachment proceedings, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, up from 38 percent last week.
Trump has shown himself to be dishonest, lacking the level of transparency needed for people to believe his motives, and his agenda is proven to be pro-wealthy and anti-working class/poor.
“If President Trump was hoping his foreign trip would shift the conversation away from scandals, he may be out of luck,” said Morning Consult Co-Founder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp. “Over the last week, support for beginning impeachment proceedings among voters rose from 38 percent to 43 percent.”
While that’s still less than the 44 percent who don’t want Congress to impeach Trump, this is a legitimate impeachment threat.
Not only is the number of people who want to see Trump impeached, increasing, so is the percentage of those who feel he is incompetent. POLITICO further reports that 54% of people believe Donald Trump:
“He has proven he is unfit to serve and should be removed from office, regardless of whether he committed an impeachable offense or not.”
The poll also shows more voters continue to disapprove of the GOP health care bill, 47 percent, than approve, 38 percent. And the 33 percent who disapprove of the bill “strongly” far outpaces the 14 percent who approve strongly.
A 47-percent plurality of voters think the bill would make the U.S. health care system worse — more than the 32 percent who think it would make the system better.
Sadly, despite cries from the American people, D.C. lawmakers have failed to take action and move forward with truly holding Trump accountable for his actions and ultimately impeach him.
