Fox News Poll: Record support for Trump impeachment

Just over half of voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a Fox News Poll released Wednesday.

A new high of 51 percent wants Trump impeached and removed from office, another 4 percent want him impeached but not removed, and 40 percent oppose impeachment altogether. In July, 42 percent favored impeachment and removal, while 5 percent said impeach but don’t remove him, and 45 percent opposed impeachment.

Since July, support for impeachment increased among voters of all stripes: up 11 points among Democrats, 5 points among Republicans, and 3 among independents. Support also went up among some of Trump’s key constituencies, including white evangelical Christians (+5 points), white men without a college degree (+8), and rural whites (+10).

Among voters in swing counties (where Hillary Clinton and Trump were within 10 points in 2016), support for impeachment increased to 52 percent, up from 42 percent in July.

A lot has happened since the July Fox poll on impeachment -- namely, the launch of an impeachment inquiry in the House following allegations Trump improperly pressured Ukraine to investigate the Bidens’ dealings in that country. The 9-point increase in support for impeachment since July, however, doesn’t appear to be based solely on the latest allegations. To that point, more Democrats favor impeaching Trump (85 percent) than consider his call with Ukraine’s president an impeachable offense (76 percent). The same holds true among independents: 39 percent favor impeachment, while 30 percent describe the Ukraine call as impeachable.

The 4-in-10 voters opposing impeachment give a variety of reasons, including: Trump did nothing wrong (21 percent), it is politically motivated (20 percent), and don’t believe allegations (15 percent).

Approval of Trump’s job performance is down a couple points to 43 percent, while 55 percent disapprove. Last month, it was 45-54 percent. Currently, 86 percent of Republicans approve compared to 89 percent in September.

Some 51 percent of voters think the Trump administration is more corrupt than previous administrations, up from 46 percent last month.

By a 66-25 percent margin, voters say it is generally inappropriate for Trump to ask foreign leaders to investigate political rivals.

8. Thats because the 40% of likely voters

Who Fox News found oppose impeachment translates to tens of millions of Trump supporters. Some of them go to rallies.

15. Silly rabbit

YOU asked about TRUMP rally attendees. I explained to you why they sell out.


But yes Democrats do attend rallies sometimes.

“Rally pulls record-setting crowd”
Do you ever have small crowds in Denver?” Barack Obama asked a group of supporters gathered Sunday morning at Civic Center.

The answer from the more than 100,000 people who stretched from the City and County Building to the state Capitol was a resounding “NO!”

Close to 150,000 Coloradans in two cities stood in hours-long lines to listen to the Democratic presidential candidate nine days before the Nov. 4 general election.

Denver police scolded people spilling onto Broadway as they trudged more than a half mile to the end of a line winding around Civic Center and behind the Denver City and County Building. But eventually police had to surrender Broadway and Lincoln Avenue as people kept coming in droves to see Obama. Denver police Chief Gerry Whitman said the crowd was “well over 100,000.”

The Obama campaign said it was the largest U.S. crowd to attend a rally for the Illinois senator. At his afternoon rally in Fort Collins, the crowd was estimated at 45,000. In fact, just minutes before the 3:30 p.m. event was to start, the line to get in was 2 1/2 miles long, according to organizers. Security officials stopped screening people and just opened the gates.

Denver held the U.S. record after Obama spoke at Invesco Field at Mile High on the final night of the Democratic National Convention. Then, about 100,000 attended a rally Oct. 18 in St. Louis, setting a record.

Until Sunday.

The throng extended from in front of the City and County Building all the way to the top steps of the Colorado State Capitol.

“It was a tremendous crowd,” said Sharon Hahn, Denver police spokeswoman. “We shut down Lincoln and Broadway.”

23. There is no inquiry. Why lie?

The "House" has the sole power of impeachment. Not Pelosi, and not Schiff. They are not the "House." I suppose, just like the MSM, if you say it enough times, people will buy it.
