As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

A Majority Of Americans Now Support Trump's Impeachment And Removal From Office

  • A majority of Americans in a new poll by Politico and Morning Consult support President Donald Trump's impeachment and believe he should be removed from office.
  • The 52% of respondents who said they approved of Trump's impeachment marked a slight increase from before the House impeachment vote, according to Politico, which noted its previous polls had found slightly more support for Trump's impeachment than other polls.
A slight majority of Americans in a new poll by Politico and Morning Consult said President Donald Trump should be removed from office.

The share of Americans saying they approved of Trump's impeachment was also up slightly from the previous Politico/Morning Consult poll, which was taken before Wednesday's House impeachment vote.

Fifty-two percent of respondents in the new poll approved of Trump's impeachment. That was up slightly from 50% in the previous poll, though Politico noted that its polls had found a bit more support for impeachment than others had. Fifty-two percent of respondents in the latest poll also supported removing Trump from office.

Like the impeachment vote itself, respondents' views on Trump fell largely along party lines. Eighty-five percent of Democrats in the new poll agreed with the House's decision to impeach, compared with only 17% of Republicans.

Trump is the third president in US history to be impeached. The president now faces trial in the Senate, during which he is expected to be acquitted and maintain his post. The timing of the Senate trial is unclear, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has yet to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate. The articles charge the president with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The Virginia-based news outlet and the marketing researching firm interviewed 1,387 registered voters online Thursday and Friday.

The poll's margin of error was plus or minus 3 percentage points.

My take: In the Nixon years surrounding his impeachment there was talk of how difficult it would be for a president to govern with little support from the people. They were talking less impeachment support then (43%) compared to now (52%) so if the support for impeachment now is that much higher one should expect even some of his supporters in the Senate to admit that it's time for him to voluntarily step down. That's the honorable way and the way this should all play out.
