Impeachment Poll Clings To Party Lines
As the second impeachment trial of former President Trump kicks off today,
52% of Americans say they support the conviction of Trump. This, after a mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
Meanwhile, 45% of those polled say they do not want to see him convicted,
while 3% are not sure.
The Gallup poll was conducted between January 21 and Feb 2 and includes 906 adults in the U.S. with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
By comparison, just over a year ago in January 2020 as the then President was being impeached amid accusations he tried to exert pressure on Ukraine to investigate then rival Joe Biden, 46% of respondents said they favored convicting Trump, while 51% were opposed.
The poll shows how highly partisan the impeachment issue has now become; 89% of Democrats support convicting Trump while just 7% oppose conviction. Meanwhile, 88% of Republicans oppose conviction and 10% support it.
