Poll: Trump’s numbers hold in Badger State

MADISON — A plurality of Wisconsinites don’t support removing President Trump from office, according to a new Marquette Law School Poll.

The poll found 49 percent of registered voters surveyed say the Senate should acquit Trump on two Democrat-led House’s articles of impeachment related to his call last summer with Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky. Fourty-four percent say the Senate should convict Trump and remove him from office, while 6 percent say they don’t know.

Meanwhile, 47 percent approved of the House’s vote to impeach the president, with 49 percent opposed to the action and 3 percent who hadn’t made up their minds. 

In December, prior to the impeachment vote, 40 percent of respondents said Trump should be impeached and removed, 52 percent said he should not be, and 6 percent said they did not know.

“Opinions among WI voters on issues related to Trump impeachment have changed little in recent months, as impeachment proceedings have progressed,” tweeted Marquette pollster Charles Franklin. 

Trump’s approval ratings checked in at 48 percent, with 49 percent of respondents disapproving. Franklin said it was the first time Trump’s disapproval rate has fallen below 50 percent in the poll since March 2017, when 47 percent of registered voters disapproved of the job the president was doing. 

A majority of Wisconsinites remain confident in Trump’s handling of the economy, with 55 percent polled approving and 42 percent disapproving. Last month, 53 percent approved and 45 percent did not. 

On the campaign front, the Marquette poll finds Trump within the margin of error against the major Dem candidates. Former Vice President Joe Biden leads Trump 49 percent to 45 percent; U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has a 47 percent to 46 percent edge; the president leads Sen. Elizabeth Warren, 48 percent to 45 percent; and Trump outpaces Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg 46 percent to 44 percent. 

The poll found a strong majority of respondents, 61 percent, believe Iran and the United States will likely avoid a major military conflict following the U.S. drone attack that killed a top Iranian military leader and terrorist and a counter missile strike by Iran. Thirty percent say a military conflict is likely, while 8 percent don’t know. 

Forty-three percent agree with the statement, “It’s about time that the U.S. struck back against Iran,” while 51 percent disagree and 5 percent say they don’t know.
