Fox News poll: 50% think Trump campaign coordinated with Russia. 50% want Trump impeached.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/fox-news-poll-voters-doubt-impeachment-will-happen


Most voters don’t think impeachment is in President Trump’s future. Yet a majority also says the Trump administration should be more cooperative with congressional investigations, and a record number think his campaign coordinated with the Russian government, according to the latest Fox News Poll.

A record 50 percent think the campaign coordinated with Russia during the 2016 election, up from 44 percent who felt that way in March, immediately before Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report. The change comes from a 14-point increase among independents, a 6-point increase among Democrats, and a 3-point bump among Republicans.

Views are mixed on impeachment: 43 percent of voters want Trump impeached and removed from office, 7 percent say he should be impeached, but not removed from office, and 48 percent oppose impeaching Trump.

Support for impeachment is up five points among Democrats since June 2018 (69 percent vs. 74 percent now) and up 15 among independents (25 percent to 40 percent today). About 9 in 10 Republicans have consistently opposed impeachment.

But most think there’s no chance impeachment will happen. Fifty-six percent of voters say it is “not at all” likely that Trump will be impeached and another 26 percent think it is only “somewhat” likely. Only 12 percent feel impeachment is “extremely” (7 percent) or “very” (5 percent) likely. Even among those favoring impeachment, only 23 percent expect it to happen.

1. ITTMFA

Get it started while there is still a government and nation to do it.

All of the investigations are good, but they need to be under a single umbrella -- impeachment inquiry.

There are millions who do not know how bad it is.

2. "Even among those favoring impeachment, only 23 percent expect it to happen."

And that's the problem. The continued stance of the House leadership is not helping us.

Don't get me wrong; I like Pelosi and have backed her through this effort. But I am dismayed at her unbending statements against impeachment.

Impeachment is not only the correct action to take, it is the necessary action to take.

3. Proof that Congressional investigations are effective

Only 50%? The word is getting out too slowly. An impeachment inquiry will get more attention and will give them even more power to compel testimony. Stop fooling around and start the inquiry yesterday.

7. It says nation wide

"Conducted June 9-12, 2019 under the joint direction of Beacon Research (D) and Shaw & Company (R), this Fox News Poll includes interviews with 1,001 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide who spoke with live interviewers on both landlines and cellphones. The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters."

12. I don't either

I think they probably fudge on the numbers, and they are actually worse for trump than they report.

14. Exactly. Those extremely low "don't expect it to happen"

numbers particularly.

I'd love to be in the room during the strategy sessions behind all this stuff. These people are king makers and nation breakers.
