Much as some Democrats want to do this, the public is not very enthusiastic. In fact, they flat out don't want to do it.
In the latest Monmouth poll (rated A+ by 538), just 35 percent want to impeach Trump and remove him from office, compared to 59 percent who are opposed. And this is not a particularly pro-Trump poll. His approval rating in the poll is just 40 percent and his re-elect number is only 39 percent.
But voters just aren't behind the impeachment idea. Consider the crosstabs from the poll. Noncollege whites are opposed by 67-27--but so are white college graduates, 67-26. Independents are opposed 64-20, residents of swing counties by 65-26 and moderates by 55-36. Even nonwhites are only narrowly in favor, 51-44.
So, face the facts: impeachment is just not popular. Thank heavens for Nancy Pelosi who is holding the line on this issue.
