Over half of Americans believe Trump should be removed as president: poll

After protests at the US Capitol, a majority of Americans believe President Donald Trump should be removed from office before his term ends on January 20, according to a new poll.

The poll, published on Sunday by ABC News/Ipsos, found that 56 per cent of respondents support his removal before Inauguration Day and 67 per cent blame Trump for the attack on January 6, which forced lawmakers to flee their chambers and left five dead.

...

But in the poll, support for removal was nearly split on party lines – 94 per cent of Democrats and 58 per cent of independents said they wanted it. Just 13 per cent of Republicans said the same.

Sixty-one per cent of Republicans said they believe Trump did nothing wrong. Another third just do not think his removal is worth the effort, given that his term is about to end.

It also found that more Americans trust Biden to “safeguard democracy” than Trump, at 53 per cent and 30 per cent, respectively.

The poll of 570 adults was conducted from January 8-9 with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.

1. At this point...

the entire republican party should be treated as a domestic terrorist organization.

2. Republicans just can't face the fact that they have been so wrong for so long.

Repent! The end is near!
