There is a growing desire for impeachment proceedings to begin against President Trump, but Americans are still split overall on what to do after the release of the Mueller report, an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll finds.

A slim majority of Americans (52%) want one of the following: to begin impeachment proceedings (22%), to continue investigations into potential political wrongdoing of Trump (25%) or to publicly reprimand him — that is, censure (5%).

Thirty-nine percent say no further action should be taken and that the current investigations should end. That is largely reflective of Trump's base, as Trump maintains a 41% approval rating in the poll. (Trump's approval rating in Marist's polling has never been lower than 35%, which it hit right after the racist violence in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017; or higher than 43%, which it reached in February 2019 as the unemployment rate dipped below 4%.)

Whatever happens to Trump I think it should wait until he’s out of office.

Agreed, wait until after office. Impeachment is a big trap.

Democrats should take heed...America is telling them to "s**t, or get off the pot".

Trump's 39% base want no further action.

52% of Americans support the rule of law.

I'm for it. It actually isn't 'impeachment' - that's up to the Senate. It would be the beginning of an 'impeachment investigation'.

I think that the knowledge that, no matter what, the craven Repubicans wouldn't vote to impeach is dampening the spirit of many.

The Democrats want to impeach Trump because he won the election against their candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Spin away, lefties. People understand what you want to do and why you want to do it.

This. And also to direct public attention away from the investigation of the investigators that is about to get underway and will potentially destroy whatever shred of credibility the Dems still possess.

more TDS.

The Dems themselves are split:

36% - "impeach the mother *****" aka Tlaib
37% - that's right, a higher % - "continue investigating, MAYBE we'll find something we can impeach/censure over"

simple math tells you, that among Dems, 27% believe in less than that...most likely "shut the hell up and start trying to govern".

Oh, and the margin of error is 7.6%. So it could be 29% impeach, 37% try to find something, 35% move on.

Among a grand total of 783 voters.

And, as one who believes in media bias, I loved this paragraph:

Quote:
Remember, 54% of Americans did not vote for Trump in 2016. Trump won almost 63 million votes, just shy of 46% of the vote. Democrat Hillary Clinton won almost 3 million more votes, or 48% of the vote.
"Hey, don't forget that 54% didn't vote for him. And disregard that a MAJORITY didn't vote for Hillary either!"

Give it up, it's getting tired. Hillary was not our candidate. In the 2016 election there was no one to vote for so if we didn't want Trump we had to vote for her. People who keep harping on her are wasting their energy.

Personally, I do not want to impeach Trump. Investigate, yes. The one good thing he is doing is cracking down on illegals. Other than that, he's a lying con man.
