What are residents in the 6 battleground states saying about impeachment?
November 5, 2019
- The majority of people in battleground states DON’T support removing the President, but they DO support the process of an impeachment inquiry
Impeachment is the talk of the town, and it’s no surprise that pollsters and politicos are out in full force trying to understand what folks on the ground are thinking.
In a new poll from the New York Times Upshot/Siena College survey, it looks like the majority of Americans in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin are unconvinced that the president should be removed from office.
But on the flip side, most residents do support the inquiry, highlighting that there’s a desire to let the process play out… yet not a convincing argument for impeachment in the eyes of most people.
Voters in the six battleground states that were important for Trump’s victory in 2016, and will likely be just as important in the 2020 election, are sending a clear message about the Impeachment inquiry.
52 percent of people in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin oppose impeaching the President and removing him from office, while only 44 percent approve. When it comes to the impeachment inquiry itself, the majority do support the process and want to see where it leads.
The takeaway: let the process play out, see what comes from the inquiry, but there’s no strong case for impeachment right now in most voter’s eyes.
Does this poll reflect what you’re hearing on the ground? The story is constantly evolving and we will see many more of these polls as public impeachment hearings begin in the next month.
