Trump approvals still upside-down, Monmouth poll says

Nation still divided on impeachment

By David Wildstein, February 10 2020 12:30 pm

A national Monmouth University poll shows President Donald Trump’s approvals at an upside-down 44%-50% with a national almost evenly split over impeachment.

By a 49%-46%, voter approve of the Senate’s vote to acquit Trump.

“We went into the impeachment process with a sharply divided public and we come out of it with a sharply divided public,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.

More than half of the country (52%) think the House should end all investigations into Trump, while 44% say they should continue.  Nearly half (48%) believe the impeachment process has decreased their faith in the American system of government.

Americans view Congress more critically than they do Trump, with an upside-down approval rating of 20%-69%.  Half of the country (52%) says the House impeachment inquiry was conducted unfairly, while 43% say it was fair.

The Monmouth Poll was conducted from February 6-9.  The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.3%.
