POLL: Majority of Truckers Oppose Impeaching President Trump
Washington D.C. – A strong majority of truckers do not want President Donald Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a brand new poll.
Results of an online poll commissioned this week by the Small Business in Transportation Coalition (SBTC) reveal that nearly 80% of truckers are against the impeachment and removal of the president, while only about 17% are in favor.
About 3% would like to see President Trump censured by the U.S. House of Representatives, but still not removed from office.
While not scientific, the poll is notable since it collected a respectable polling sample size of well more than 400 respondents.
The issue is much more evenly divided among voters in the general populace though.
According to polling aggregator Real Clear Politics, its latest “poll of polls” on the issue shows the country divided 46.5 to 46.5%.
However, recent polling among likely voters in key battleground states such as Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are beginning to move decisively in favor of President Trump amid the Democrats’ impeachment push.
Most political experts agree that the Democratic nominee in 2020 must win back at least two of these key states that President Trump won in 2016 (Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin) if they are to have a realistic chance to retake the White House next year.
On Friday, December 13, Congressional Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee advanced two articles of impeachment (Abuse of Power & Obstruction of Congress) on a 23-17 party line vote.
A full vote in the House is scheduled for next Wednesday, December 18.
Most political experts expect the Democratically-controlled legislative body to pass both articles which would send the matter to the U.S. Senate for trial early next year.
A minimum of 67 U.S. Senators would have to vote against President Trump in order for him to be removed from office.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has already signaled the articles of impeachment against President Trump are likely to be “dead on arrival” in the Senate.
