Hot off the press from pbs.org comes this new polling data about President Trump:
Forty-seven percent of Americans say they wouldn’t vote for a congressional candidate who supports impeaching President Donald Trump, while 42 percent said they would, a new PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll shows.
Another 10 percent said they were unsure how they would vote if a candidate supported an effort to impeach Trump, the poll found. The survey was released Wednesday, as Trump faced mounting legal challenges from both Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and a separate probe by federal prosecutors into his longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
Rather than impeaching Mr. Trump, I advocate evaluating his policy actions. He is correct on tax reform and correct on judicial nominations. He is wrong on trade; protectionism creates more losers than winners, and he is wrong on failing to rein in spending, particularly entitlements that are busting the federal budget.
