Impeachment Poll Sees 20-Point Swing In One Week

Just in from Quinnipiac Polling:

American voters are divided on impeaching and removing President Trump from office, 47 – 47 percent – closing a 20 point gap from less than a week ago, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today.

In the poll released on September 25th, voters said that the president should not be impeached and removed 57 – 37 percent. Among the political party subgroups, Democrats showed the greatest change from the last poll. Today, they show a virtual consensus on impeaching Trump, 90 – 5 percent, while last week they said Trump should be impeached 73 – 21 percent.

The gap also closed among independents, who clearly said that the president should not be impeached last week 58 – 34 percent, and today are only slightly opposed to impeachment at 50 – 42 percent.

Republicans feel much the same today as they did last week about impeachment; today, they say Trump should not be impeached 92 – 7 percent, and last week, they were opposed 95 – 4 percent.
