President Trump is poised to become the first president to be impeached twice—and a majority of Americans support it.
House Democrats plan to vote tomorrow to impeach President Trump for “inciting insurrection” if tonight’s request of Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment stripping Trump of his powers is denied.
Six in 10 Americans (59%) say they support the House of Representatives impeaching President Trump for a second time – of those, 48% say they strongly support impeachment. However, roughly a third of Americans (32%) say they oppose impeachment while nine percent say they don’t know. It’s no surprise these feelings fall strongly on partisan lines:
- 73% of Democrats say they strongly support the House of Representatives impeaching President Trump for the second time while
- 65% of Republicans say they strongly oppose the second impeachment process.
Although we typically see issues like this also divided by age groups, in the case of a second impeachment, majorities of all age groups say they support the second impeachment process for President Trump.
