Nation Turning On Donald Trump, Ouster From Office Standing At 49%

November 3, 2019


It is not going to be a good morning for Donald Trump on the commode as he commences this morning’s tweets.   That is due to the news of polling which is making headlines regarding his shaky standing with the American citizenry.

A near majority of all Americans support impeaching Trump and removing him from office, disapprove of his job performance and back his top Democratic rivals in head-to-head matchups.

What I find remarkable is that the poll conducted by NBC News/Wall Street Journal  was conducted after the military raid that killed the leader of ISIS.  In normal circumstances, such a military strike of international significance would have benefited the one sitting in the Oval Office.  But with Trump so laden with criminal and ethical misdeeds the nation is in no mood for winks and nods of approval.

What the poll finds is truly amazing.  Ponder back to how it took two years for an investigation into President Richard Nixon to reach a point that a solid segment of the nation wanted his removal from office.  Think back to the weeks since the Ukraine phonecall made headlines and now where national polling shows the electorate to be on the issue.

In the poll, 53 percent of Americans say they approve of the impeachment inquiry regarding Trump’s actions with Ukraine’s president, while 44 percent disapprove.

The results largely break along partisan lines, with 89 percent of Democrats and 58 percent of independents supporting the inquiry — versus just 9 percent of Republicans who agree.

Then asked if Trump should be impeached and removed from office, 49 percent answer yes, while 46 percent say no.

That’s a reversal from a month ago, when the survey found the numbers essentially flipped — 43 percent yes, 49 percent no.

The increase in those supporting removal from office comes mainly from Democrats and independents.

Trump had stated he would not worry about impeachment until the polls showed 50% of the public were of one mind.  Orange Mussloni might now start to break a sweat.

I am most interested in the GOP congressional caucus as they know a war-room atmosphere must get underway at the White House.  The caucus is fretting over the lack of urgency as days pass, and then weeks, and still no organized and unified response from the daily piling on of damaging reports.  Trump seems not able to grasp or fully appreciate the gravity of the situation.

Part of that comes from Trump’s form of dementia.  Some of it comes from having no one to stand up and alert him to the fact there is a dire threat of impeachment coming.  Some of it results from his being under-educated.  All that, and more has left the nation in a very sad state of affairs.

The public is watching and learning the facts as they emerge.  While many are just taking in the lead paragraphs it is obvious from the polls that a hefty percentage is digging deeper, and in so doing, arriving at the only logical conclusion. Donald Trump must be impeached and removed from office for actions that run counter to the Constitution.
