Recent poll confirm that four in 10 registered voters already support impeaching US President Donald Trump. In the survey this week, 40 per cent of voters said they favour removing Trump from office. The poll was up from 35 per cent who endorsed impeachment when asked a week earlier, according to polling firm Public Policy Polling.
Only two weeks into Donald Trump’s presidency and the American people are already done with him. More than a third of the country wants to see the president impeached, according to the latest national poll from Public Policy Polling.
“Usually a newly elected President is at the peak of their popularity and enjoying their honeymoon period after taking office,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling.
“But Donald Trump’s making history once again with a sizeable share of voters already wanting to impeach him, and a majority of voters wishing they could have Barack Obama back,” he said.
Unpopular policy actions appears to be contributing to his waning popularity. Before Trump signed an executive order that set an immigration ban from seven Middle East countries, a majority of Americans approved of a hypothetical refugee ban from countries Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
“About 52 per cent of voters think that the order was intended to be a Muslim ban, to only 41 per cent who don’t think that was the intent. And the idea of a Muslim ban is extremely unpopular with the American people ,only 26 per cent are in favour of it, to 65 per cent who are against it,” the PPP poll said.
When it comes to barring people from certain countries from entering the U.S., even when those people have already secured a visa, just 39 per cent of voters are supportive to 53 per cent who are against, according to the poll.
Just 43 per cent of voters support the U.S. indefinitely suspending accepting Syrian refugees, with 48 per cent opposed to that.
The figures were compiled after Public Policy Polling surveyed 725 registered voters on January 30 and 31.
