No surprise in that….
Democrats want Trump gone…
Republican have stood by him even though they admit his actions aren’t right from time to time…
Trump NEEDS Indie voters for the November election….
The Senate’s impeachment trial of President Donald Trump shifted the votes of some independent voters, but most Americans were driven even deeper into their political corners by the sessions, according to an LX and Morning Consult poll released Friday.
The survey, conducted during the final 24 hours of the quickest impeachment trial in U.S. history that ended in a vote for acquittal Wednesday, reveals 31% of respondents who identified with neither the Republican or Democratic Party said the trial made them less likely to reelect the president this fall, compared to 22% who said the trial made them more likely to vote for his reelection. The other 47% of independents said the trial made no difference in their support for Trump.
Overall, the polling was reflective of partisan splits, with 36% of U.S. adults reporting they were now less likely to reelect the president and 32% of U.S. adults reporting they were now more likely. Thirty-two percent said the trial made no difference in their support.
The U.S. Senate voted Wednesday to acquit President Donald Trump on impeachment charges brought by the House of Representatives last year. LX and Morning Consult polled 2,197 U.S. adults during the final 24 hours of the Senate’s impeachment trial.
Predictably, Democrats overwhelmingly said they were less likely to reelect the president (68%), while Republicans said the trial made them more likely to reelect the president (72%). However, a small group from each side of the political aisle said the trial made them more likely to buck their party come November, amounting to 5% of Democrats and 8% of Republicans.
“These results show a polarized electorate that is basically immovable in their opinions of Trump,” said Fordham professor of political science and polling Monika McDermott. “Those who say they are more likely to support him were surely supporting him already, and vice versa for those less likely to support him.”
McDermott said the trial likely changed few minds….
