Support for impeaching POTUS is dropping fast, and that’s according to a CNN poll

(National SentinelNope: Democrats set to take over the House in a couple of weeks have a one-track mind when it comes to the future of Donald Trump’s presidency: They don’t want him to have the presidency, period.

Not satisfied with attempting to defeat him in the 2020 presidential election, many Democrats want to impeach him. But while a growing number of Dems support that, a diminishing number of Americans do, and that’s according to a 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, 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).

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



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).

No doubt that’s not the result that fake news CNN was hoping for, given the network’s outrageously biased [negative] coverage of the president.

But it’s good news for the country. As divided as we already are, seeing a president with high job approval numbers (+/- 49 percent for weeks now, according to Rasmussen) would fracture us irreparably.

That said, if impeachment of POTUS Trump is an increasingly unpopular idea, then, by all means, we encourage the Democrats to continue talking about it and, perhaps, even pushing for it.
