Trump’s support among Fox News viewers and white evangelicals grows stronger as calls for impeachment grow louder

Two groups remain unmoved by the onslaught of revelations of President Donald Trump’s corruption, as public support for impeachment grows among most every other demographic.

White evangelicals and Fox News viewers are the president’s strongest base of support, and their devotion has only grown stronger as calls for impeachment grow louder, reported The Atlantic.

More than 70 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents still prefer Trump to remain their party’s nominee in 2020, but 82 percent of white evangelical voters want him on the ballot.

Those numbers have grown steadily since Trump’s election.

Among all Republicans, 42 percent said there is virtually nothing the president could do to lose their support.

But 55 percent of Republicans who get most of their news from Fox News said there’s nothing that would shake their support for the president, and nearly two-thirds of white evangelicals say Trump hasn’t hurt the dignity of the presidency.

Majorities of all other religious groups disagree, saying that Trump has damaged the stature of his office.

On Wednesday, not even two full months into 2020, millionaires will stop paying into Social Security for the year due to the program's payroll tax cap.

The cap limits annual wages subject to the Social Security payroll tax to the first $137,700. Sarah Rawlins, program associate at the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), wrote Tuesday that the cap means "someone who makes $1,000,000 per year stops paying into the program on February 19, 2020."

"That makes a millionaire's effective tax rate well below the 6.2% of income that most Americans pay," Rawlins noted. "Instead, it is less than 1% of a millionaire's income. The Social Security tax is only levied on wages, excluding income from other sources like capital gains, meaning those with wages over the cap likely have an effective tax rate even lower than this estimate."
