"51 percent of Americans support House vote to impeach Trump"

American voters are almost evenly split on whether they support the House's move to impeach President Trump, according to a new Quinnipiac poll.

The survey, which was released on Monday, found that 51 percent of voters polled approve of the House's move to impeach Trump and make him just the third U.S. president in history to face Senate removal. Forty-six percent said they opposed the lower chamber's move.

Opinion is divided along partisan lines, with 91 percent of Democratic respondents approving of Trump's impeachment and 92 percent of Republican respondents opposing it. Meanwhile, 56 percent of independent voters polled said they supported Trump's impeachment, while just 38 percent said they disapproved it.

The survey found largely the same findings in response to whether the Senate should vote to remove Trump from office, with 46 percent saying the upper chamber should and 48 percent saying it should not.

A majority of respondents (52 percent) said they are troubled by Trump's actions involving Ukraine, while 45 percent said they were not. In addition, an overwhelming majority (66 percent) said they would like to see former national security adviser John Bolton testify in a Senate impeachment trial. That included 39 percent of Republicans and 71 percent of independents.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last Friday that she was prepared to send the impeachment articles to the Senate this week. The Quinnipiac poll discovered that voters were almost equally divided over her move to withhold the articles. Forty-four percent said they approved the decision, while 48 percent said they opposed it.

The Quinnipiac survey was conducted among a population of 1,562 self-identified registered voters between Jan. 8 and Jan. 12. It has a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.

1. The only polls that matter is the one taken on elections day in the voting booths. The rest is BS.

4. However in 2016

An average of the last ten polls taken before the election predicted Clinton would get 46.8% of the popular vote and she actually received 48.2% compared to Chump's 46.1%. 2,868,691 more Americans went to the polls and voted for Hillary Clinton than voted for Donald Chump.

2. Wrong!

That supposed poll is not 51% of Americans, it is supposedly 51% of self-identified registered voters.
That supposed poll amounts to the thoughts of .001% of registered voters and only .0004% of people in the USA.
That supposed poll, like almost all of them these days is worthless except to those who can't think for themselves.

6. So that must mean...

When Donald Trump tweets about his poll job approval numbers, its because he can't think for himself?

"For the ninth time, Trump celebrates hitting 50 percent approval"

8. I think political parties are supposed to be partisan

My understanding is that is why they were established in the first place. First Amendment: "The right of the people to peacefully assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances shall not be abridged."
Some folks have a grievance against Trump trying to get dirt on Joe Biden. A bill of impeachment is a petition of the government through elected representatives of the people.
Don't want Trump impeached? Don't lose 40 seats in the House.
It was exactly the same in 1998, before Bill Clinton was impeached. Republicans predicted impeaching him would help them in the Mid-term elections: From October, 1998: "A hefty haul for Republicans could help ensure impeachment. In July, when Speaker Newt Gingrich began privately predicting that his party would win 21 House seats--bringing his majority up to 32--even his staff laughed; it seems only marginally boastful now. As the impeachment debate was going on last week, Representative John Linder, chairman of the National Republican Campaign Committee, told TIME he expects a gain of 10 to 15 seats, then added, "It's starting to feel better than 10 to 15...and if it goes up, it goes from 15 to 30." But the looming impeachment isn't the boon Republicans had expected. The party's base of conservative voters is "15 times more likely to vote" because of the scandal, but they would have voted anyway. Many Republicans who need moderates to win are not using the scandal explicitly in their campaigns; some even consider it a third rail. "It would backfire if we used it," says Cynthia Bergman, spokeswoman for Oregon House hopeful Molly Bordonaro. "Voters would view it as negative campaigning." In Mississippi's racially divided Fourth District, Republican Delbert Hosemann first withheld judgment of Clinton, then switched course, calling for resignation and demanding his opponent say "whose team he's on." Now, slipping in the polls, Hosemann has backed off again. "I don't want to be elected because of what Bill Clinton did," he says."

9. Trump's actions were directed at general corruption in Ukraine, not at Biden in particular

The transcript and his actions show that. Stop perpetuating Schiff's lies. You're just as dishonest as he is.

11. I'm talking about what is explicitly spelled out in the articles of impeachment.

October 3, 2019: "Trump asked Ukraine and China to investigate Biden while standing on the White House lawn"
President Donald Trump on Thursday called for Ukraine and China to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.
"China should start an investigation into the Bidens, because what happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine," Trump said. "So I would say that President Zelensky, if it were me, I would recommend that they start an investigation into the Bidens."
Trump said this on live TV while standing on the White House lawn.
Trump urged Ukraine to investigate the Bidens in a July 25 phone call that's at the heart of a whistleblower complaint that sparked an impeachment inquiry. And now he's calling for China to investigate as well.
There's no evidence of wrongdoing by the Bidens in Ukraine or China."
https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-asked-ukraine-and-china-to-investigate-biden-2019-10

Adam Schiff is one vote. The articles got 229 and 230 votes.
"The allegation of abuse of power stems from Trump's decision to withhold roughly $400 million of congressionally approved military aid from Ukraine until the country announced an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden.

A meeting with Trump at the White House that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky wanted was also dangled as a condition for the announcement of an investigation.

In a July 25 phone call, Trump urged Zelensky to investigate Biden, and his son, Hunter, who worked for the Ukraine energy company Burisma Holdings. The "favor," as Trump described it, was made despite a lack of evidence that Biden or his son had engaged in corrupt activities, according to the House Intelligence report."

12. The poll was a national sampling

Not one football game in one city, and in one state.

15. This game was the national college championship. ...

You can bet it attracted people from all over this nation. Somewhat similar to the Super Bowl. I remember watching all the private jets landing at Tampa International Airport every time there was a Super Bowl as I lived about a mile from the airport runways.
