New Rasmussen Poll Shows Majority of Voters Think Failed Impeachment Only Made President Stronger


Everyone knew impeaching the President was going to be a colossoal failure from the beginning.

Now we have hard evidence that not only did the Democrats fail, but Trump is now in a better position in the eyes of a majority of voters.

Check out what’s trending:

As reported by Rasmussen Reports:

Impeachment is over and done with as far as most voters are concerned. The House Democrats’ failed effort to remove President Trump has just made him stronger politically, voters say.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 32% of Likely U.S. Voters think House Democrats should continue their efforts to remove Trump from office. Sixty-two percent (62%) say Democrats in Congress should now focus on other issues. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

For Democratic voters, it’s a close call: 48% say their representatives in the House should continue their efforts to remove Trump from the White House, but 43% say they should focus on other issues. Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Republicans and 70% of voters not affiliated with either major party say House Democrats should zero in on other issues.

Fifty-five percent (55%) of all voters think the unsuccessful attempt to remove Trump from office has made him stronger politically. Just 16% say it has made him weaker, while 23% believe the failed impeachment effort has had no impact.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted February 6 and 9, 2020 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Most voters think Trump’s impeachment won’t hurt him at the polls in November and don’t share House Democrats’ concern that the upcoming election may be unfair if Trump is one of the candidates.

Seventy-three percent (73%) of Republicans and 56% of unaffiliated voters believe the unsuccessful effort to force Trump from office has made him stronger politically. Among Democrats, 40% agree; 22% say the failed impeachment attempt has made him weaker, while 32% think it has had no impact.

The majority of voters in most demographic categories want House Democrats to focus on issues other than impeachment.

Not only do voters think Trump is in a better position, but most of them want the Democrats to get over it and move on!

Despite President Trump's acquittal on two articles of impeachment in the Senate last week, democrat impeachment managers seem determined to keep their pursuit of the issue alive. 

But according to a new survey from Rasmussen Reports, the vast majority of American voters want Democrats to move on. Further, they think impeachment made President Trump stronger. When nearly half of Democrats say it's time to move's long past time to move on.

All this and Jerry Nadler still seems stuck in his own little world:
