Voters Say Impeachment Unlikely, Trump Reelection Instead

Despite former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s much-ballyhooed testimony before Congress last week and congressional Democrats’ big investigative push against the president, voters don’t see impeachment in the cards. But they give Democrats a better chance of winning the White House in 2020.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is likely that investigations by congressional Democrats will produce evidence that leads to the impeachment of President Trump, but 53% consider that unlikely. This includes 24% who say the Democrats are Very Likely to find evidence that leads to impeachment and 29% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
