For the first time, the public scales have tipped against Donald Trump on the question of impeachment, with 51 percent saying they want him impeached and removed from office, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.
That represents a significant increase from the same poll in July:
Since July, support for impeachment increased among voters of all stripes: up 11 points among Democrats, 5 points among Republicans and 3 among independents. Support also went up among some of Trump’s key constituencies, including white evangelical Christians (+5 points), white men without a college degree (+8), and rural whites (+10).
His approval rate has also dipped to 43 percent, and while we’ve seen significant and sometimes dramatic political events in the past few months, this is also an indication that at least so far, House Democrats have succeeded in moving the tide of political opinion against the president by initiating impeachment proceedings.
