The attempt to impeach Trump did not affect his support among voters

Most American voters believe that President Donald Trump abused his power and prevented a congressional scandal, but the public remains divided — mostly along party lines — over whether these actions justify his removal from office. These are the results of a new national poll by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal.

The survey also shows that Trump lags behind the main presidential candidates from the Democratic Party in hypothetical general election matches, and shows how stable the president's position has been throughout the impeachment period.

According to the results of the poll, 49% of respondents gave a negative answer to the question of whether the Senate should vote for Trump's removal from office. 46% of respondents were in favor of impeaching Trump. At the same time, 5% said they were undecided on this issue.

52% of respondents believe that the US President has abused his authority. 41% hold the opposite view, while 7% were unable to give a definite answer.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the approval rating of the U.S. President in January has hardly changed, amounting to 46%. And the number of those who strongly support Trump has reached the highest level since 2017 — 36%.

In addition, almost 60% of respondents expressed confidence that the Democrats, trying to declare Republican Trump impeachment, pursue their political goals. On the contrary, 37% of the study participants believe that the opposition party is principled.

“We've been through House impeachment investigations, Senate litigation, and America's attitude toward Donald Trump has hardly changed,” said Democrat surveyor Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research Associates, who conducted the survey with Republicans.

Recall that the U.S. Senate scheduled for Wednesday, February 5, to vote on two articles of the charges against President Donald Trump as part of the impeachment.
