According to a new poll by Monmouth University Polling Institute, support to impeach Trump is higher than the anti-Nixon rhetoric at the beginning of the Watergate scandal. The poll indicates that fully 41 percent of Americans want to see Congress impeach Donald Trump and remove the unlikely POTUS from office. That number dwarfs the percentage of Americans calling for Nixon’s impeachment in July 1973.
Indeed, as the Watergate scandal began to unfold, only 24 percent of polled Americans were calling for the impeachment of Nixon, reports New York Daily News.
Despite the disturbingly high percentage of polled Americans who are now want to see lawmakers impeach Trump, Monday’s Monmouth University Polling Institute indicates that Trump’s approval rating is holding low but steady at just around 39 percent as he approaches the six month mark of his presidency.
“Even though Trump’s approval rating is similar to Nixon’s, more Americans support impeachment today than did in 1973.”
