Fifty-seven percent of respondents said it is time to have a new president, according to a Monmouth University poll released Thursday. However, only 35 percent said they think Trump should be impeached.

Democrats overwhelmingly backed impeachment, at 72 percent. Only 39 percent of independents and 8 percent of Republicans agree, based on the poll.

Overall support for impeachment has ranged between 35 and 42 percent since Monmouth started polling that question in July 2017.
While some 2020 Democrats and House leaders are eager to open impeachment hearings against President Trump, the public has lost interest.

According to the latest Monmouth University Poll, which has been tracking the issue, 59% disagree with the Democrats, and just 35% agree.

“Support for the president’s removal via impeachment has ranged between 35% and 42% since Monmouth started asking this question in July 2017, with the current results at the low end of that range,” said the analysis.

What’s more, only 1 in 5 think impeachment will lead to a Senate conviction and removal from office.

“Donald Trump is not a popular president by most measures, but the appetite for impeachment remains low,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.

Added polling expert Ron Faucheux, author of a daily statistical newsletter, “Impeachment is a loser issue for Democrats.”
That's why we need leadership.
