Multiple new polls that have been released in recent days show that public support for impeachment has fallen to a record low and opposition to impeachment has surged to a record high which comes as President Donald Trump’s approval rating tied a record high in a separate poll.
Tom Bevan, Co-Founder and President of Real Clear Politics, noted on Monday that the new Real Clear Politics average shows that public support for impeachment is going in the wrong direction for Democrats as support for impeachment is now underwater nationwide with 47.3% opposing impeachment while 46.7% support it.

In the Quinnipiac poll, whose polls are usually anti-Trump leaning, his support has reached an all-time high of 43 percent.
A new poll from USA Today, whose editorial board recently endorsed impeachment, found that “in the wake of combative impeachment hearings, those surveyed oppose by 51%-45% a Senate vote to convict Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.”
USA Today’s poll also showed “Trump defeating former vice president Joe Biden by three percentage points, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by five points, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren by eight points. In hypothetical head-to-head contests, Trump also led South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg by 10 points and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg by nine.”
