Read the Footnotes Posted January 10, 2021 Share Posted January 10, 2021 Majority of Americans want Trump removed immediately after U.S. Capitol violence - Reuters/Ipsos poll | Reuters https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-trump-poll/majority-of-americans-want-trump-removed-immediately-after-u-s-capitol-violence-reuters-ipsos-poll-idUSKBN29D2VG Here's a summary of the stats: 57% want Trump removed immediately 70% say they disapprove of his actions in the run-up to Wednesday's assault 30% said Trump should be removed using the 25th Amendment 14% said Congress should impeach 13% said Trump should resign On the other hand, polling indicates there is still a good bit of support for Trump among Republicans. There is also the QAnon portion of Trump supporters. This Reuters/Ipsos data, if representative, shows a couple of things. The numbers are bad and the trend may be worse, because as more information comes out about what happened on Wednesday it's not going to be pretty, and there will be lots of photos and videos eventually. These numbers may get worse. In the heat of battle, Republicans made a tactical error in not seeing how quickly the sands might be shifting and too few changed their votes and behavior. Also now they are in a real bind stuck between those who believe the disinformation and a rapidly growing majority of the country (including Republicans) who want nothing to do with Trump. It will be a difficult needle for the party to thread. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
