To hear Republicans talk about it, there is little interest from the general public for the removal of office for Donald Trump. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said that Democrats aren’t united and that he is working with Trump towards an acquittal.
There are polls out there, however, that say much different things than the Republican party line. A new study, from MSN, said that support for the removal of Trump from office currently stands at 55%.
Liberals may not have complete cause for celebration. This particular poll has regularly shown more support for the removal of the President than similar ones.
Surveys of whether Trump should be removed or not have largely been all over the place. The national average shows the voters to largely be split down the middle.
A recent Fox News poll drew interest as it had support for Trump’s removal to stand at 50%.
Host Brian Kilmeade tried to explain away the network’s poll. He told viewers, “The Fox News poll came out, and I was stunned by this, it says 50 percent of the country want the president impeached. I was stunned to see that that’s the number, because I thought that things were trending away, although the president’s approval rating did tick up in the same poll, so it’s almost like a split personality.”
The issue is clearly on Trump’s mind. He tweeted on Christmas, “Why should Crazy Nancy Pelosi, just because she has a slight majority in the House, be allowed to Impeach the President of the United States? Got ZERO Republican votes, there was no crime, the call with Ukraine was perfect, with “no pressure.”
