Poll: Impeachment still unpopular in Wisconsin

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 13,  2019

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON — Wisconsin voters aren’t buying what House Democrats are selling on impeachment.

A new Marquette University Law School Poll finds 52 percent do not believe President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 40 percent support the Republican’s removal. Six percent of respondents were undecided.

The numbers opposed to impeachment are up from October despite wall-to-wall coverage of the Democrat-led effort to get rid of Trump on allegations he solicited foreign interference in the 2020 election and compromised national security.

In October, before the impeachment inquiry hearings began, 44 percent of registered voters surveyed supported impeachment and removal, with 51 percent opposed.

Last month’s poll found 40 percent favored impeachment and removal, 53 percent did not, and 6 percent were unsure.

Democrats support for impeachment and removal remained high, at 80 percent, as did opposition by Republicans, 94 percent. Support for impeachment among independent voters continued to decline, down 2 percentage points from November, at 34 percent. 

The poll of 800 Wisconsin registered voters was conducted Dec. 3-8. It has a margin of error of 4.2 percent. 

After months of coverage on the president’s call with his Ukraine counterpart, less than half of respondents — 44 percent — believe Trump withheld military aid to pressure the Ukraine, while 36 percent say he did not. Another 19 percent of respondents say they don’t know.

Less than one-third of registered voters say they are following the impeachment probe coverage closely.

Trump’s job approval ratings in Wisconsin, while still under water, match his best rating ratio since taking office, Marquette pollster Charles Franklin said. The poll found 47 percent approve of the job he’s doing, with 50 percent disapproving. His better showing has much to do with the solid state of the economy. Fifty-three percent of respondents approve of Trump’s handling of the economy, while 45 percent disapprove. The number was slightly higher in November, at 55 percent approval rate.

Trump leads most top Democrats or is within the margin of error in head-to-head polling. Only former Vice President Joe Biden holds a slight lead, 47 percent to 46 percent.
