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.

Good luck ending up in prison.

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.

Presstitute Polls also forecasted a Pure Evil War Criminal Psychopath Hillary Clinton CEO aka "President" win.

BeanusCountus's picture

Absolutely. Think they had Hillary at about 48%?

Revolution Now.

Big difference.

Umh's picture

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.)

“These people are playing with matches… I don’t think they understand the scope and scale of the wildfire they are flirting with. They are fucking around with a civil war that could last a decade and cause millions of deaths… and the sad truth is that 95% of the problems we have in this country could be solved tomorrow, by noon… simply by dragging 100 people out in the street and shooting them in the fucking head.”

And lemme tell ya, he had the list… he rattled off 25 or 30 names of well-known, prominent politicians, mostly Democrats, but a few Republicans, several members of the current Cabinet, a couple of Obama’s “czars”, a couple of figures from the Bush administration and the Republican establishment, several media company executives and on-camera newscasters, reporters, and pundits, a couple of people who are active in leftist politics but not in elected office… he had obviously thought about this to some degree already.

Perhaps Trump can pull what we were afraid Obummner was going to do, Marshall Law and forbid any more elections until th ecountry becomes stable.

I just hope that most of the 300 million privately owned weapons belong to the Trump supporters side.

This shows the same amount of shallow thought Dems put into every decision.  Killed by gun = ban the gun.  People don't work = give them money.  Also, white people have privilege.

You Tylers seriously need to stop with the liberal media bandwagon regarding impeachment. Fuck you!

 

MAGA!

Am I the only one who remembers Trump's letter stating that he fired Comey at the recommendation of AG Sessions? I am no lawyer but the Dems are deluding themselves if they think there is a great chance for impeachment even if the leak is true. But that wont keep them from dragging this out. Meanwhile the Seth Rich story...

jimmy12345's picture

You missed when Trump then said 24 hours later that he was going to fire him regardless of what the AG said.

48% of the people fell into the 1%'s plans to start a civil war. It's amazing how they manage to keep us evenly divided.

Hope DC likes MRE’s.

Every highway overpass is an offensive/defensive position.

Jesus Christ!  Let's get the Convention of States going and either figure out how to amend the Constitution in a meaningfull way to reign in the federal government and administer the "final solution" to the elites or just amend the federal government out of existence and try another experiment in goverment.

The Statists would love nothing better than a ConCon.  They will fuck it up 18 ways to Sunday. The Constitution is not the problem.  Not enforcing the laws at the top with the big guys is the problem.  Fedgov is completely lawless now.  No enforcement on Wall St.  No enforcement in DC.  That's the problem.

>>> '....could point to a single "fact", as opposed to an anonymously sourced fake news story...'

How about all the self-incriminating admissions by Fat Ass Donny Two Scoops himself? Whether in tweets or media interviews, this fukkkhead has helpfully confessed to his treason, witness intimidation, and obstruction of justice. What a dipshit.

And btw, facts are facts - without the quotation marks. Unless you're shopping for Alt-Reality "alternative facts"

"If the election were held this week, the project estimates that Clinton's odds of securing the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the presidency at more than 95 percent, and by a margin of 118 Electoral College votes. It is the second week in a row that the project has estimated her odds so high." Reuters, Oct. 14, 2016

 

We can believe in polls because they are always right. Remember poll are 100$ BULLSHIT!

Start a civil war, when losing elections. Did not we do it in Syria already.

I would hope that Trump was smart enough to do a bug sweep of the white house before moving in. It's probably where all these leaks are sprouting from.

I upvoted you but you obviously know nothing about the Constitution and Taxation. "Fair tax" my ass.

It's The War of the Turds; pieces of shite from both sides battling it out. Has anyone but me thought that blabbing to the press about what you heard in a classified conversation in the oval office is a crime? The leak is the crime. The unmasking was a crime. The spying on members of Congress by BO was a crime. Where is Sessions and Congress on these crimes.

66Mustanggirl's picture

Do you mean to say that after 6 months of relentless, daily wild accusations, baseless anonymous leaks, and delusional wishful thinking masquerading as news, that's all a biased DEMOCRATIC polling outfit could scrape together was 48%???

Holy buckets! I would call that an epic fail. I suddenly find myself feeling much more optimistic about the resiliency and common sense of the American people.
