CNN Impeachment Poll Completely Backfires, Shows Growing Support For Trump

A new CNN poll has spectacularly backfired, bringing even more embarrassment on the self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news” and their all-star lineup of Trump haters.The incoming Democrat majority in the House hasn’t even taken over, but there is already a threat that their party could be spweek — shows a lack of enthusiasm for ousting Trump.

Though the news media appears obsessed with the idea of impeaching President Trump, the majority of Americans now oppose that idea according to a new CNN poll.

“With Democrats set to take control of the House in January, speculation abounds about whether the new majority would impeach the President. Americans break against that idea. Half — 50 percent — say they don’t feel that Trump ought to be impeached and removed from office,” wrote CNN polling director Jennifer Agiesta in her analysis.

Republicans have the president’s back: 91 percent agree that impeachment should not be on the table. Another influence has surfaced as well.

“The shift on impeachment comes mostly from political independents. In September, they were evenly split on the question, with 48 percent behind impeachment and 47 percent opposed. Now, 36 percent favor impeachment and 55 percent are opposed,” she said.

Americans break against that idea, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS. Half, 50%, say they don’t feel that Trump ought to be impeached and removed from office, while 43% say he should be. Support for impeachment has dipped some since September, when 47% favored it, and is about the same as in a June poll (42% favored it then). Support for impeachment of Trump remains higher than it was for each of the last three presidents at any time it was asked. It’s on par with President Richard Nixon, who 43% of Americans said should be impeached and removed from office in a March 1974 Harris poll.

There’s also been a meaningful shift on the question among younger adults (53% of those under age 45 backed impeachment in September, now that’s down to 45%) and racial and ethnic minorities (66% favored it in September, 50% do now).
