Americans Oppose Impeachment

May 09, 2019

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that President Donald Trump was “becoming self-impeachable.”  As many on the left continue placating their extreme base by advancing this idea, most Americans are not on board.  According to an NBC News/WSJ poll, 48% of Americans say “Congress should not hold impeachment hearings,” up from 47% who said the same in March.  While 32% said, “Congress should continue investigating to see if there is enough evidence to hold impeachment hearings in the future,” only 17% said, “There is enough evidence for Congress to begin impeachment hearings now.”

A May Quinnipiac poll found almost all demographic groups oppose impeachment.  Sixty-six percent of all voters said they did not think “Congress should begin the process to impeach President Trump, while just 29% said they do think Congress should begin the impeachment process.  A small majority of Democrats (56%) and black voters (57%) support Congress beginning the impeachment process.  Republicans (95%), Independents (70%), men (72%), women (61%), white voters with no college degree (74%), white college-educated voters (71%), voters in every age bracket, white voters (72%), and Hispanic voters (57%) all oppose Congress moving forward with impeachment.

Considering almost every voting bloc outside of their base opposes this move, the Democratic impeachment drive will likely backfire, leaving Republicans the beneficiaries of Democratic overreach.
