Voters Say Trump’s Impeachment, Removal from Office Bad for Economy

Democrats remain convinced that President Obama is largely responsible for the economic boom that followed Donald Trump’s election, but voters in general agree that Trump’s impeachment would be bad news for the U.S. economy.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of all Likely U.S. Voters think the improving economy is due more to President Trump. Forty-three percent (43%) say it’s primarily due to the policies Obama put in place before he left office. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
