There is another poll out that spells trouble for President Donald Trump if the Democrats do not succeed again in losing the unloseable election. There are now more people supporting impeachment of President Trump than there are people supporting Donald Trump. Forty-three percent support him while fifty-four percent oppose him. However, there are other problems lurking in these latest Gallop numbers.
What should be a concern is the strength of the feelings of the polled individuals. The number of people who feel “strongly” in opposition or support to Trump is astronomical. Some 71% who approve feel strongly and 81% of those who disapprove are strongly. Those type of voters do not tend to shift.
Some 45% believe that Trump should be impeached and removed from office while 53% are against impeachment.
The divide between the parties is also extraordinary. Only 6 percent of Democrats and only 37 percent of independent support Trump. Yet, 89 percent of Republicans approve of Trump and 92% thought he should not be impeached.
Of course, the Democrats are rapidly moving to the far left on many issues, a dynamic that could help Trump in the general election. Moreover, these figures show that Trump could not spend a dime on the primaries and sail to victory — saving his money for the general. That is not a luxury open to the candidates in a crowded Democratic field.
