More amazingly, more want Trump barred from holding national office ever again than had even an unfavorable rating of any president after one term in office.
Every single poll over the last month that I could find that meets CNN standards for reporting has shown that at least 56% of Americans want him to be barred from holding or seeking (depending on the question) federal office again.
This means that there are likely millions of Americans who voted for Trump last year who now want him barred from holding federal office.
When it comes to conviction specifically, there seems to a slightly smaller majority in favor of such an action. An average of 51% of Americans in live interview polls taken since January 20 are in favor. A minority of 43% oppose this. This 8-point difference has basically stayed the same over the last month.
Of course, Trump’s not likely to be convicted (or barred from running for federal office) because his support from Republicans, though down, is still north of 80% when it comes to the Senate acquitting him. Republicans have 50 seats in the Senate and 67 votes are needed for conviction.
But Trump’s likely acquittal should not be mistaken for support among the larger electorate.
The bottom line is Trump remains quite unpopular and a lot of Americans want no part of him.
