A new Axios/Survey Monkey poll released Tuesday reveals 44 percent of respondents want Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
Those surveyed stance on impeachment falls sharply along party lines, with 79 percent of Democrats favoring the move, compared to 49 percent of independents and eight percent of Republicans saying the same.
The poll was conducted following Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleading guilty to charges of bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance law violations.
Cohen’s campaign finance law violations stem from hush money payments the lawyer arranged during the campaign to women who allegedly had affairs with Trump. Cohen said he made the payments at the direction of “a federal candidate for office,” seemingly implicating the president.
A majority, 64 percent, of Americans believe that Trump ordered Cohen to make the payments.
I have to say that I am surprised that the number looking for impeachment has not yet broken 50%.
I mean seriously, what more needs to happen?
