Independents approval of Trump has gone up since October.
The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives will vote on the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump this afternoon.
While it will surely pass, the American people have made it known that they still support Trump and not the impeachment.
Trump Approval Rating
The House opened the impeachment inquiry this fall. Since then, Trump’s approval rating has slowly inched up.
Trump sits at 45%, up six points since October. Not surprisingly, Republicans approve of the president a lot more than Democrats (89% to 8%).
The Independents have changed:
Less than half of political independents approve, but the current 42% is up from 34% at the start of the impeachment hearings and matches their highest rating of Trump so far.
It looks like the impeachment inquiry against Trump has not affected the view of the American people. The economy remains strong, each month brings in more jobs, and unemployment is tied at an all-time low.
In other words, people care more about their daily lives and the economy.
Impeachment and Removal
Gallup also found a drop in support for impeachment and removal of Trump.
As stated above, the impeachment inquiry began this fall. Since that period, more and more people do not approve of impeaching and removing Trump.
Only 46% support impeachment and removal, down from 52% in October when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced the impeachment inquiry.
Democrats outweigh the Republicans in supporting impeachment, 85% to 5%.
The impeachment fiasco has also lost support among Independents, which has gone down since October. Gallup held two polls that month with Independents showing at 55% and 53%.
In November, the number dropped to 45%. The number went up to 48% in this poll, but it’s still below the 50% mark.DONATE
