New Poll Shows Americans Remain Strongly Divided Over Impeaching Trump

01 June 2017

'Over the last week, support for beginning impeachment proceedings among voters rose from 38 percent to 43 percent'.

That said, the firing of FBI Director James Comey over his investigation of Michael Flynn, considered by many to be an obstruction of justice, might have brought a few members of Congress closer to discussions of impeachment. The alderman explained, "I introduced this resolution because President Trump continues to obstruct the investigation into Russian influence over his administration, in his business dealings, and the alleged collusion during the 2016 election". According to the Public Policy Poll, a whopping 48 percent of Americans are in support of a Trump impeachment. Furthermore, Republican members of Congress facing re-election in the 2018 midterms are wary of upsetting Trump's voter base that defied all expectations to give him the presidency. "To do otherwise would cause some Americans to lose respect for, and obedience to, our societal norms", Democratic Rep. Al Green said in a statement after calling for Trump's removal on the floor of the House.

The goal behind the local government movement, which has no authority in the impeachment process, is to convince Congress to launch an investigation to determine if impeachment charges are justified. Former President Gerald Ford famously said that an impeachable offense "is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history".

If agreed by the Senate, the president is convicted of charges and is removed from office.

As for the current United States president, who is both unconventional and controversial, two opposing forces will determine whether impeachment proposals against Trump can be successful.

US Constitution, Article II, Section 2 on pardon power of the president: 'The President shall.have Power to Grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment'.

Democrats as a party must be willing to argue that Donald Trump is unfit to serve as President.

Chatter of a potential Trump impeachment has increased in the weeks since he fired FBI Director James Comey, who had been leading the federal Russian Federation probe.

Democrats (from 68 percent to 71 percent) and Republicans (from 12 percent to 15 percent) were also slightly more likely to back impeachment proceedings, which are highly unlikely as long as Republicans maintain their control of both chambers of Congress.
