DONALD TRUMP IMPEACHMENT SUPPORT MORE THAN 10 POINTS HIGHER THAN APPROVAL RATING: NEW POLL




The percentage of Americans who believe President Donald Trump should be impeached is 13 points higher than his approval rating, according to a poll conducted shortly after his onetime campaign manager was convicted of felonies and his former lawyer pleaded guilty to criminal charges.

Asked if they thought Congress should begin impeachment proceedings that could lead to Trump being removed from office, 49 percent of participants in The Washington Post-ABC News poll released Friday said Congress should, while 46 percent said Congress should not.

In contrast, 36 percent said they approve of how Trump is handling his job, and a record 60 percent disapproved, the poll shows.

The four-day poll was conducted beginning last August 26, five days after Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort was convicted of eight federal tax and bank fraud felonies and the president’s former “fixer” Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts and directly implicated the president in illegal payments to silence women who alleged affairs.

A random sample of 1,003 adults were surveyed across the nation for the poll, which had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. Trump’s job disapproval rating in an April Washington Post-ABC poll with a random sampling variation was 56 percent, and his approval rating was 40 percent.


Enjoy the long holiday weekend...it's Allston Christmas around these parts.

And remember kids, don't drive moving vans on Storrow Drive!
