48% Of Americans Want To Impeach Trump

Tyler Durden's picture

Update: We can only imagine what the poll says after tonight's debacle from The New York Times.

*  *  *

According to a new survey by the Democratic polling firm Public Policy Polling (PPP), 48% of Americans want Trump impeached.  Of course, while it makes for a provocative headline, the poll does little more than prove that (i) pollsters are still using generous Democrat "oversamples" and (ii) Trump's favorability is heavily dependent on ones party affiliation with 81% of Hillary voters supporting impeachment and 83% of Trump voters opposing it.

And while 81% of Hillary voters can't wait for impeachment proceedings, we can't help but wonder whether any of them could point to a single "fact", as opposed to an anonymously sourced fake news story from the New York Times and/or Washington Post, that would merit such a punishment. 

As far as we know, the only thing that Democrats have managed to "prove" so far is that a couple of Russian-based media outlets ran some negative articles about Hillary during the 2016 election cycle...which pales in comparison to the amount of negative press that Republicans get from the combination of CNN, NYT, Wapo and the rest during every single election cycle...does this mean that CNN has tried to hack every election for the past 35 years?

And, just as a matter of housekeeping because it's pretty much taken as a given at this point, here is proof of PPP's 9-point Democrat oversample.

 

That said, all of Trump's latest controversies, starting with Comey's firing last week and culminating with Wapo's latest 'bombshell' that he shared "highly classified intelligence" with the Russian ambassador in the Oval Office, seem to be taking a toll on his overall public perception and increasing the market odds of his impeachment.

Impeach

 

And further still since The New York Times reported the Comey Memo..

 

In other news, the PPP poll found that ~90% of Hillary voters 'disapprove' of Trump...shocking, we know.

 

Moreover, nearly 90% of Hillary voters do not think the Russian story is 'fake news'.

 

Anyone else noticing a trend here?  We're almost certain that Trump could announce that he'd found a cure for cancer and 90% of Hillary voters would be opposed to using it.

Finally, the only issue where Hillary voters seemed to be somewhat confused was whether or not they support former FBI director James Comey...on Comey's favorability Hillary voters were roughly equally split between 'favorable', 'unfavorable' and 'we have no freaking clue how to respond because we're not sure which answer means that we hate Trump more.'

 

But, while Hillary voters have no idea how they should feel about Comey, once again ~90% are certain that Trump shouldn't have fired him....Hillary maybe...but definitely not Trump.

..According to an informal assessment of patriotic Americans by the informal assessment firm American Assessment Associates (AAA),  52% of Americans want Democrat pollsters to be put in front of a firing squad.

Oh, I hope they do impeach him, so he can destroy them on CSPAN for the whole world to see.

Oldwood's picture

Oh, so you think they will allow him to speak at his hanging?

Lets be clear here. Progressive do not defeat, they destroy, and they want to destroy Trump more than anyone in their history. This will not be an impeachment, it will be a circus ending with his head on a pike. His businesses will be destroyed and his family, regardless of how much the profess allegiance to their progressive God (the state) will be taken down with him. Trump will have no choice but to fight like his lie depends upon it. Whatever he does, it will not be predictable as they will cover their bases to prevent it, and you can bet that ANY impeachment trial will limit his ability to do much of anything. And it's not like proof means anything anyway. Their are making this a public hanging, relying on destroying any public support for Trump and intimidating anyone from daring to offer him support.

The Malicious Seditionist Media (MSM) has blown off any pretense of being journalists - they are political operatives working 24/7/365 to overthrow the legitimately elected president of the United States.

Jeff Bezos is calling the shots at the WaPo - did anyone miss his hate for Trump?

And our favorite Hispanic La Raza backer - Carlos Slim - is calling the shots for the NYT.

You are watching in Real Time the coup d'etat underway by the Deep State. If you doubt this is a coup d'etat, here is the definition from Wikipedia:

A coup d'état (/?ku? de??t??/ also known simply as a coup (/ku?/), a putsch (/p?t?/), golpe de estado, or an overthrow, is the illegal and overt seizure of a state by the military or other elites within the state apparatus.[1]

This is not about Trump anymore - this is about whether the US will be taken over by a band of seditionists actively carrying out a coup d'etat as we live and breathe.

The time has arrived to begin organizing the mass public demonstrations in DC to stop this coup d'etat cold - in other words, it's counter-coup time.

I AM SETTING UP A WEB SITE AND OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA TO ORGANIZE THE COUNTER-COUP AGAINST THE DEEP STATE. CLEAR YOUR LIFE TO BE IN DC, AND MAYBE IN NYC IN FRONT OF THE NYT, NY DAILY NEWS, AND THE OFFICES OF THE MALICIOUS SEDITIONIST MEDIA IN ABOUT 6 - 8 WEEKS FROM NOW . . . AND NOBODY KNOWS HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE TO CRUSH THE COUP D'ETAT.

THERE WILL BE VIOLENCE - COUNT ON IT - FROM THE ANTIFA BLACK SHIRTS FUNDED BY SOROS AND DIRECTED BY THE DEEP STATE. YOU WILL BE VILIFIED BEYOND ANYTHING YOU'VE EVER EXPERIENCED BY THE MALICIOUS SEDITIONIST MEDIA, AND PERSECUTED BY THE DEEP STATE'S CRIMINALS-WEARING-BADGES.

IT'S PUT UP, OR SHUT UP TIME FOR YOU.

NOTE TO HILLARY, HILLARY'S HEADLINE WHORE CORPS, THE CRIMINALIZED FBI, CIA, AND OTHER THREE-LETTER US VERSIONS OF THE KGB AND THE STASI, OBAMA, COMEY, LYNCH, HOLDER, CLAPPER, MCCONNELL, RYAN, WATERS, WAPO, NYT, THE REST OF THE MALICIOUS SEDITIONIST MEDIA, ET. AL: E S & D.

(Forgive the all caps - however, there are times when something is so important, that you have to be heard above the crowd noise. I'm as serious as a heart attack - stay tuned, because this will be the first place I post on the progress of the counter-coup. You've been quacking about standing up to the Deep State and its criminals-in-office - well now, it's "Show or Blow Time" . . . you've got 6 weeks to get your act together.)

How many people have died fighting over the various gospels?

If by "gospels" you mean government-run "religion," then quite a few. Same goes for government-run atheism as we saw in the 20th century.

If you mean religion as practiced outside of the State, or of power brokers like the funding sources behind Falun Gong, then few if any.

Let us not take our eyes off the State, or off its role in corrupting every good thing.

Good advice, but probably not for the reason you're saying.  This is the headline of an article linked on Drudge right now:  "KIM NUKE FEARS Shocking new satellite photos show North Korea’s nuclear missiles are MORE powerful than world feared and can hit US."

We're going to war.   They have the people divided and distracted more so than ever, therefore no organized resistance to war; they have the MSM telling us all we're going to die because some fat kid in North Korea has nukes, and most people believing them therefore no organized resistance to war; and they have a world-wide economy that is slowing down beyond the point of band aids, therefore giving the bankers a good reason to create the ultimate distraction.  

The MSM also has successfully demonized Russia, which is likely to respond militarily to an attack on North Korea.

ANd if 60, 70, 80 million americans die in the outcome, well heh, they were brave souls. If you are walking down the road and you come up a gigantic anaconda, what do you do? Better have a bazooka.

LetThemEatRand's picture

I'm thinking that Syria was a test-run.  They wanted to see if the American public would accept a sudden reversal by MSM on Trump in the event some missiles were launched to punish some supposed bad guy, and rally behind him.  It worked.  They now have all of the pieces in place.  

Some here may not remember that W was also reviled by the MSM before 9/11.  But it didn't stop the MSM from fawning over him after 9/11, and it didn't stop the public from supporting him when we invaded Afghanistan and then Iraq in "response."

Oldwood's picture

The only enemy that ALL Americans hold in common is each other. The politicians will tear us to the ground and people like Kim see us as weak and divided....and he is right. Yo may be right. This may all be a manufactured war of distraction, but I am inclined to think the world is coming undone because we have continually demonstrated a lack of any clear principles except personal destruction and deceit. THAT is WEAKNESS and enemies of the world, and they are legion, are waiting for us to fall on our faces. Trump is not doing this, but he is the cause, the reason, and we made him do it. Progressives will burn the WORLD to the ground to win, just as they did in Russia and China and so many other places where ideology of The State rules supreme. What was regional has now gone global. Globalism is about one thing...control. We could assume this is for our own good, but it would be in defiance of everything we have learned from history.

LetThemEatRand's picture

I agree with everything you just said except for your focus at the end on "Progressives."  Bush Sr. -- the former CIA head -- coined the expression "New World Order."  I don't think many see him as "progressive."

Ironically, by focusing on the left/right conservative/progressive paradigm, you are engaging in the very battle you say is the problem, Americans vs. Americans.

Oldwood's picture

There is no doubt that any ideology can be abused and corrupted and I will not say that there are some serious corruption issues in the republican party, but that is not conservatism. Progressivism is communism in every way except in name. And do not tell me that somehow communism is equivalent to conservatism. That would be the same as saying Islam is the same as Christianity. Progressivism is collectivism which ultimately is communism when taken to its natural and defined goal. I REJECT collectivism and will never support it or equate it with traditional conservatism.

So many want to pretend that we are suffering from some delusion of left vs right as a means of distracting us from the larger issues. I say quite the opposite. I say that relativism is a means of blinding us to our reality, that collectivism, globalism, are working to enslave us. That progressives preach liberty and freedom while doing everything in their power to divide us and silence ANY opposition. Simply look at the lengths they are willing to go to take down Trump....effectively another Ukrainian coup. If you think we are divided now, just wait until they boot Trump. NOTHING the left is doing will make America better, only worse, more divided, racially, religiously, ideologically at each other's throats. It will be the end of America, at least the constitutional version we THINK we still have. Progressives MUST defeat the constitution. THEY must write the laws and not be constrained by the founding fathers who had not a progressive bone in their body. They are enlightened. They have  cunning PLAN. Trump was the problem that will become their solution.

Many also think that progressives will damage themselves by their manic behavior, but that has never hurt them in the past. What so many fail to recognize is that chaos and destruction always favor the progressive as it empowers ever greater government power...unaccountable power that ALWAYS prospers in time of social breakdown, just like the terror attacks and wars so many here believe to be the primary factor. Just admit it. A DOMESTIC destabilization is perfect, be it political, or a foreign attack. Deplorables in the streets brandishing their guns would be a gift from Allah.

Well, that 48% would be the leftist assholes that voted for Hillary "The Rapist Enabler" Clinton.

And I guess that poll proves that Trump did, in fact, win the popular vote (among legal voters).

In other news, they want to impeach him based on nothing but their own hatred.

Time to get nasty with these fucking tyrants.

TBH, if Trump gets kicked out of office, many, many people will take up arms and start slaughtering those with opposing political beliefs. The Civil War and the Holocaust will look like kids playing in the streets compared to what will happen here, with one side armed to the absolute teeth, and the other largely disarmed.

Really best not to open that door.

Yes, but who controls the police, the national guard and the military? They have you outgunned by a country mile.

El Vaquero's picture

No, they don't.  They lack the manpower.  There are approximatly 750k state and local LEOs, last I heard, ~200k federal LEOS and the military is around 2.2 million, with only around 10% being actual combat troops.  When CT passed that register your "assault" weapon law a few years ago, an estimated 350k "assault" weapons went unregistered.  That's enough to arm the entire USMC a couple of times over, and that's just people who ignored the law in CT.  

tmosley's picture

This is not a wish, it is a dire warning. I will likely not participate.

And no, the police, national guard, and the military are on the side of the people with the guns. Look at any poll.

Nona Yobiznes's picture

You're right. Trump's impeachment is going to cause the disintegration of the government and polite society. I am in support of an army of patriots storming DC and forming a new government. A good portion of the military would not stand in our way. 

It seems that's the last remaining option.

Please relax, he won't be impeached. On the almost impossible chance it occurs Pence takes over.

Edit: this is what they want.
