New Poll Shows 10-Point Spike In Support for Impeachment Hearings

The number of Americans who support the start of impeachment hearings now for President Donald Trump is up 10 percentage points since May, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

The increase is due to a surge in support from Democrats. Forty-eight percent of Democrats want hearings to begin now, as compared to just 30 percent last month. Only 6 percent of Republicans agree with their counterparts, while 22 percent of independents want hearings to begin.

Overall, 48 percent of Americans want the president to complete his first term. Although up 10 percentage points since last month, still only 27 percent of Americans say impeachment hearings should start now. Twenty-four percent think Congress should continue investigating.

Trumpís approval rating teeters between 43 and 46 percent over the past year, and stands at 44 percent in this poll, with 53 percent disapproving.

1. Pretty good given that most don't know Mueller provided plenty of evidence of collusion with Russia

They need to see the "movie".

2. Government shutdowns have gone badly for trump and his forebears.

Current 'Budget Impasse' looks very bad for trump - unless he can distract news coverage to the media morsel 'Impeachment'.

The Speaker et al, are very aware of how to play all this.

How many 'Impeachment Now' supporters have considered this very significant issue? How many have even a remote awareness of this, and how badly it could turn out for Dems if not well managed?


[hint - there is something to be said for representative democracy].
