51% Of Americans Want Trump Removed From Office. But He Isn’t Going Anywhere.

Personality cults, and such.

By the narrowest of margins, Americans now say Donald Trump's Senate trial should result in his removal from office. That's according to a new Pew Research Center poll, released on Wednesday. 51% of US adults said the Senate should convict Trump, while 46% said he should be allowed to keep his job as the most powerful man on the planet. Not surprisingly, the results were split almost entirely along partisan lines, with 86% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents saying Trump should be acquitted and 85% of Democrats and Democratic leaners saying he should be sent on a permanent vacation to Mar-a-Lago. As you can see, Americans aren't nearly as divided on whether Trump has done things that are either unethical or illegal, with 70% saying he's likely "guilty" of the former and 63% expressing some degree of confidence that the president has, in fact, broken the law either while in office or while running for president. Pretty much by definition, that means that at least some Americans are ok with an unethical criminal occupying the Oval Office.

    It is sad when Trump’s illicit and unethical actions unbecoming of the stature of his office are recognized, but people are still reticent to put their petty political leanings aside to actually hold him accountable for it. That includes the Senate, which is supposed to be conducting the trial impartially.

    • It’s just as sad that he largest group of supporters is those that he is fleecing the most. I am not rich by any means. I do have a 401k and have contributed as large a percentage as I could to it since the day I got my first job. I have sacrificed living like the “Joneses” to ensure a safe retirement. Not one that includes traveling etc. but Day to Day Living and medical expenses to last over a 25 year life span. To be sure this market has helped me. I’m not a huge risk taker but try to be smart and balanced. Now I fear losing my retirement funding and losing my SS to boot!

    The voters need to send Rs a message at the ballot box. Gardner should be voted out. McSally out.

    The Trump party will fizzle out but not sure the R party will ever come back.

    The people are going to rebel against the trumpians and Ds will control the House, Senate and WH.

    Talk radio hosts and Fox will make even more money. Heads I win tails you lose.

    As a former R I am looking forward to the party rebuking trump and finding the footing again. Whether it can happen will depend on the Ds blowing the opportunity once again.
