Poll: Trump approval sinks 5 points

Poll: Trump approval sinks 5 points after Mueller report, tying all-time low

Despite the slide to 39 percent, there is little support for using impeachment to remove the president.

By STEVEN SHEPARD 04/22/2019 05:22 PM EDT

President Donald Trump’s approval rating has dropped 5 points, equaling his presidency’s low-water mark, since last week’s release of the special counsel report into the 2016 election, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

Despite his sinking poll numbers, however, there is little support for removing Trump through the impeachment process, the poll shows.

But while views of Trump have tumbled since the publication of Robert Muller’s redacted report, so has support for impeaching him. Only 34 percent of voters believe Congress should begin impeachment proceedings to remove the president from office, down from 39 percent in January. Nearly half, 48 percent, say Congress should not begin impeachment proceedings.

Pelosi: Impeachment Off the Table'

Pelosi: Bush Impeachment `Off the Table’

By Susan Ferrechio
Published: November 8, 2006

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi promised Wednesday that when her party takes over, the new majority will not attempt to remove President Bush from office, despite earlier pledges to the contrary from others in the caucus.

“I have said it before and I will say it again: Impeachment is off the table,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said during a news conference.


And two years later...

And for all those who have missed the point. Not impeaching Bush didn't hurt the Dems in the next election. So we should trust Speaker Pelosi's judgement on this.

Will Hillary Clinton's endorsement make a difference?

She has stayed out of it so far. But will her endorsement of a candidate make a difference to undecideds or supporters of other candidates?

House Dems need to start investigations now

There should be several tracks to them:

1. Financial committees should investigate Trump's taxes and financial ties to Russia.

2. Intelligence committees need to look into the hacking of the 16 election and the Trump campaign's contacts with Russians

3. The Judiciary committee has to Trump's attempts at obstruction of justice

And while the House Dems do this, our candidates need to talk to the people about jobs, healthcare, income inequality, etc.

I firmly believe that if Dems play it smart and expose Trump while campaigning on issues that people most care about, it will lead to total victory in 20.

Bill Maher needs to shut up about Dems going on FAUX

They are a propaganda outfit and Dems shouldn’t legitimize them.

Pete Buttigieg & Beto O'Rourke: I just don't get it

I'm sorry to say that I've seen several interviews with both these candidates and I just don't get their appeal. That is not to say that both would be a vast improvement over the current President. They would.

But I just don't see how they rise above any of the several excellent candidates already running. I've watched interviews with Harris. Warren, Booker, Sanders, Klobuchar and others. They all seem so much more substantive on issues and policy. I'm not seeing this with Buttigieg & O'Rourke. Maybe I've seen some bad interviews for both. But their main argument seems to be 'vote for me because I'm a good guy'.

Thus, it is a mystery to me why they have generated so much excitement. There seems to be a whiff of cult of personality around them rather than genuine support based on their positions on important issues. What I've seen is a lot of style from both but little substance.

President Obama had a lot of style but there was substance behind that. I'm just not seeing that with either Buttigieg or O'Rourke. Again, maybe I have just seen bad interviews with them. If there are better ones, I'd love to see them. But at this point, I think we have far better candidates with much more substance than either of these two. This is not to put them down, both would make a much better President than Trump. And I would gladly vote for either if they were the nominee of the Democratic party.
