Polling on impeachment:
Support for impeaching Trump is at 53-54%, and for impeaching and removing ranged 49-51% over Oct-Dec.
Those numbers are a) massive and b) steady. Within an MOE that represents mere noise.
Since July, it’s shot up, including in @realDonaldTrump’s base.
What that means is that, since July, **support for impeachment has soared** and has remained steady at the high it reached in October. 54% to impeach and 50% to impeach and to remove.
+ 10 white rural voters
+ 5 evangelicals
+ 5 GOP
+ 8 white men no college degree
In turn what that means is the @HouseIntel @RepAdamSchiff @RepSwalwell hearings moved the needle and it is likely that a couple of percent more will come from a Senate trial.
FIFTY PERCENT of Americans want Trump gone. That number has been steady for three months.
So Democrats are giving **54% of Americans** (impeach + remove, just impeach) what they want. And @senatemajldr leader will deny 50% of Americans what they want.
In case anybody doesn’t speak polling, that represents a landslide Dem win in 2020.
But wait - there’s more
Some of those who don’t support impeachment at all (a steady 41%) will have that view because they think we should just vote Trump out. The same exact poll shows COLOSSAL numbers agreeing with @RepJerryNadler that Trump abused his power, etc
So, finally, what does that mean? It means that even a goodly chunk of the 41% against impeachment are completely unimpressed with Trump and will vote against him or stay home.
If @senatemajldr protects Trump he’s marching GOP Senators into the electoral abyss along with Donald.
