Trump’s poll numbers have tanked in the last month — and even his supporters agree he broke the law: report

Published

President Donald Trump excitedly promoted his 51 percent approval, though he didn’t say what that approval was for.

As it turns out, 51 percent of Americans support removing Trump from office, a new CNN poll showed. The number prompted a flood of people talking about the 51 percent on Twitter Monday afternoon.

It’s a shocking number that even President Bill Clinton didn’t have to contend with when he was impeached.

At no time did Clinton drop below 50 percent favorability during his impeachment trial. After it was over, Clinton topped 73 percent approval.

Trump, by contrast, is struggling to hold himself over 40 percent approval. At the same time, people are leaning more toward removing the president from office. Sadly, for Trump, 57 percent of Americans don’t approve of the way he’s been handling the impeachment and only 38 percent approve.

The new CNN poll shows a shocking increase over the same poll one month ago. “Net support for removing Trump from office is up 8 points since mid-December,” pointed out Virginia state senate chief of staff Matt Rogers.

To make matters worse, even Republicans and Trump’s supporters agree what the president did was wrong and he likely is guilty of the crimes he’s accused. On the first article, whether Trump abused the power of his office, 58 percent agreed he’s guilty (41 percent disagree). On the second article, whether Trump obstructed justice, 57 percent believe Trump is guilty (39 percent disagree).

Unfortunately for Trump, a massive 74 percent of Americans said they were paying attention to the impeachment trial. Americans also don’t like the way Republicans are handling the impeachment, to the tune of 54 percent. Only 39 percent approve. While disapproval for Democrats is still at 50 percent, approval for Democrats has increased in the last month to 46 percent.

A whopping 67 percent of people polled said that Russia is either a very serious or moderately serious threat. Only 14 percent of people said that Russia isn’t a threat at all, meaning even Republicans agree Russia is a threat to the United States.

GOP ripped for refusing to remove Trump from office: ‘Folly of that failure becomes clearer by the day’

Published

on

Republicans seeking to keep control of the United States Senate were harshly criticized by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for failing to remove President Donald Trump from office during impeachment.

"For four years now, as both a candidate and president, Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked America’s voting system, falsely claiming voter fraud any time it suited his needs. In a new low, last week he threatened the federal funding of two states over their reasonable moves to facilitate mail-in voting," the newspaper noted in an editorial published online on Memorial Day. "What does it say that the head of the world’s leading democracy is so intent on undermining that democracy?"

On Monday, during his observance of Memorial Day, former Vice President Joe Biden donned a face mask in accordance with CDC guidelines — a contrast with President Donald Trump, who has frequently refused to wear a mask even in some places that require them.

But Fox News senior analyst Brit Hume went out of his way to mock how Biden looked wearing it.
