More Than Half of Americans Had a Strong Message for Their Senators About Impeachment
A recent collection of data found in a Gallup Poll showed that the impeachment proceedings seem to be having a positive affect on President Donald Trump's overall job performance in the minds of Americans.
“As the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump begins, 44% of Americans approve of the job he is doing as president. Trump’s approval rating has been steady in the past three polls — between 43% and 45% — slightly above the 39% to 41% ratings he received as the impeachment inquiry started in the fall,” Gallup wrote in their poll.
The pollster went on to say that the president's current ratings "are among the highest of his presidency."
"His personal best is 46%, while he has averaged 40% job approval for his entire term. Currently, 88% of Republicans, 37% of independents and 10% of Democrats approve of the job Trump is doing."
The poll, which was conducted between the second and 15th of January, took place after the House of Representatives voted to impeach the president in December.
"Forty-six percent of Americans say they would like their senators to vote to convict Trump and remove him from office, while 51% want their senators to vote against conviction so Trump will remain as president," Gallup went on.
"As was the case for Clinton, the impeachment of Trump has not had a noticeably negative effect on his popular support. In fact, for both presidents, impeachment had the opposite effect of increasing their public approval."
