Percent Now Support Trump Impeachment

Christy Curtis | 18 August, 2017, 00:29

Going further, 68 percent of Republicans believed Trump's blame of "many sides" being responsible for the violence that engulfed the college town over the planned teardown of a statue honoring Confederate general Robert E. Lee, while 55 percent overall claimed Trump was inaccurate.

Americans largely agree on at least two points on the Charlottesville riot and response, according to a new CBS poll taken Monday through Wednesday.

"In an interview he said he believed was private, Stephen K. Bannon described the alt-right as a "collection of clowns" and lashed out at rivals in the Trump administration".

Just over two-thirds of Republicans said they approve of Trump's response to the attack.

Last month, a different poll by USA Today/iMediaEthics listed evangelicals among Trump's strongest supporters, with about half strongly opposing his impeachment compared to a quarter who were in strongly favor. Yet, he backtracked at his press conference from Trump Tower Tuesday, where he again blamed "both sides". "Do they have any semblance of guilt?" Among Republicans, 79 percent approved of his performance in office, down from 91 percent in June.

In both surveys, Americans who identify as Republicans held a much more positive view of Trump and agreed with the comments he made this week. Disapproval climbed from 52 percent to 58 percent.

The poll found that almost two-thirds of Americans consider the attack that killed Heather Heyer in Charlottesville domestic terrorism. "President Trump's policies have encouraged".

We all know how the media feels about President Trump's response to the tragedy in Charlottesville, VA, but now we have the pulse of the American people.

Among Hillary Clinton voters, 90 percent thought he did not do enough, while only 8 percent of Trump voters said the president did not do enough. Fifty-one percent of Republicans also agreed that the vehicle attack was a case of domestic terrorism.

Democrats had a starkly different view - with 3 percent seeing unity, 70 percent seeing division and 24 percent seeing no effect.

The poll was conducted August 14 through August 15, and a total of 1,125 Americans responded to the questions over the phone. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus four percentage points.
