Poll: Impeach the president?
With the presidential impeachment inquiry revving in the House of Representatives and seemingly daily revelations about an alleged quid-pro-quo request for political favors from Ukraine, we asked readers the big question of the day, if not the year: Should President Trump be impeached?
Sixty-two percent of readers said, essentially – and quite literally in some comments – “dump Trump.” Meanwhile, 38 percent consider it, in the words of POTUS 45, a “witch hunt.”
At more than 60 percent, Sonomans are pretty solidly in the impeachment camp, but a quick look at the comments and it’s safe to say few people will be changing their minds about this anytime soon.
Here are a few of the more passionate responses:
Absolutely, Trump has to be impeached. In extorting help from foreign governments for his own re-election campaign he’s committed the most obvious and clear-cut impeachable acts we’ve ever seen. If his behavior is condoned, you can just tear up our Constitution.
Need to work on important issues ... i.e. guns, cannot live in one state and purchase in another state.
Absolutely not. The Democrats are just trying to interfere with the success of our president. That’s too bad. Think of how much more they can accomplish by working with the administration to help all of us.
Well the president is blatantly breaking his oath of office on live TV now, so... yea.
The Democrats need to grow up and work with the current administration to get things done for the people. President Trump has done nothing wrong unlike Hillary and Joe.
Serious allegations about colluding with another country in the attempt to “steer” an upcoming presidential election must be dealt with quickly and swiftly!
Spend more time fixing the real problems. Quit worrying about what the other guy is doing. Wasted money on impeachment, stupid.
Hell yes!! The level of corruption of this administration is mind boggling, and I remember Watergate.
No, we don’t support the House impeachment inquiry. It’s just another “witch-hunt” by the Democrats who can’t get over the fact Hillary lost the election!
The Democrats can’t beat him fair and square, so they seek to reverse the results of a legitimate and by-the-rules election. This is underhanded and completely bogus.
There is no basis for it... just Democrats accusing Trump for what they themselves actually have done. Their obsession is costing millions of taxpayers dollars, while putting the real concerns of the people on hold. All to disenfranchise the voters who duly elected OUR president, rather than Hillary.
We have a strong president who is making America great again! I agree with his strong stance against ILLEGAL immigrants, am happy with our booming economy and our strong military. The members of Congress who are seeking his impeachment, need to stop dividing the country and concentrate on making us strong again.
No one is above the law, including the person currently occupying the White House.
The media is ignoring the Biden family, specifically son Hunter’s involvement with Ukraine last year and his profiting from a company which provides services he knows nothing about. His dad is on tape talking about it. Saw it. Heard it. The Dems are just throwing something every week on the media wall to see what sticks. I want my wasted tax dollars back.
There is no impeachment, it was never brought to the floor for a vote. Just red meat for ignorant liberals.
