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.

98% of Republicans polled want to see Trump Drain the Swamp!

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.

Jeffersonian Liberal's picture

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.

In a country where less than 40% of the people can find North Korea on a globe, it's hard what to know what to think.

TV news sure looks exciting these days. I watched a whole 30 minutes and people semed excited.

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.

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.

This cuntry is an embarrassment to those that died and risked their lives in the revolution to found it.  Little did they know what sort of scum would inhabit it.

Yes and as a Canadian, (outsider) what a disgraceful group the Demoncrats are. I think their party should be squashed out of existence. I always thought that you guy's needed a third party to make it more fair and interesting. Now I will just be happy to see 2nd party that has even a 1/4 of a brain. I am not stating tha the Republicans are awsome either by any means. I too want to see the swamp drained.

 

Many of my friends wonder why I am so interested in what goes on in the US, I keep telling them that as soon as the US get's away with any freedom stealing policy, other .gov's will say" well there doing it in the US , so were gomna do it here". It is bad enought that our MSM repeats exactly what your does.

BTW: I am one those "rare few" that never answers a poll. They start off okay and then ask personal questions, this is where I used to hang up, know I just hang up before the questions start.

FIAT CON's picture

Most polls I have done ask specific questions which are rigged to get the outcome the pollster is hired to get. It allows a specific group to say "See we told you so, our poll comfirms it".

LyLo's picture

This. 

My mother worked for .gov for years, asking people how many potatoes they ate in a week (true).  She watched the wording and questions changing through the years, and could always tell who wanted which answers.  And this was in the GOOD years; her last few years in the Census Bureau it came to light that they were, contrary to law, passing personal information around the government like an STD and it became very very apparent why a lot of the questions had changed.  Also, don't answer government pollsters anymore, FYI; they're hiding the interesting questions in among asking about your potato consumption. 

(On an ironic side note: she loves to give me hell for being a homemaker, and thinks instead I should contribute to society like she did.  Fucking lol.)
