The poll also says that just 37% of Americans want Trump impeached….
Most people want Congress to assert THEIR power to ‘keep Trump in line’…..
If these numbers are still the same a year from now one COULD see several Republicans questioning a Trump second term and looking to primary their party leader…
These numbers are BEFORE Mueller throws down his final report and finishes charging people and getting convictions…..
As speculation for 2020 begins to heat up, a little more than 3 in 10 Americans want to see President Donald Trump win a second term in the White House, according to a new poll.
A Monmouth University poll out Wednesday found that though the president’s approval rating stands fairly steady at 43 percent, only 37 percent of registered voters want to see him reelected, compared to 58 percent of voters who want someone new in the Oval Office come January 2021.
Those who don’t want to see Trump reelected predictably varies by party, but 16 percent — not an insignificant number — of Republicans say Trump should be a one-term leader, according to the poll, while 92 percent of Democrats and 58 percent of independents said the same.
The Monmouth poll, which was conducted from Nov. 9-12, shortly after last week’s midterm elections, also asked respondents how they would like a new, divided Congress to function in relation to the president. The vast majority (72 percent) of the public said they wanted it to be either a major or minor priority of Congress to act as a check on the president. While Democrats and independents were mostly unified in their belief that Congress should keep Trump in line, even 54 percent of Republicans said that it should at least be a minor priority.
While there appears to be little support for Trump winning a second term in office, there is just as little support for moving to impeach Trump and having him removed from office. Just 36 percent of respondents said that they supported impeaching Trump, down from 41 percent in July 2017, while 59 percent said they did not believe Trump should be impeached….
