Support for Impeachment Has Nearly Doubled Among Independents

 

Posted on 09 Jun 2019 

A small majority of Americans are now in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump, censuring him, or continuing investigations into his actions, according to a new poll. And among key group, political independents, support for impeachment has nearly doubled in the past month.

In April, when asked what Congress should do with the findings of the Mueller report, only 14 percent of independents believed that legislators should begin the impeachment process. But the latest Marist/NPR/PBS News Hour poll shows that 23 percent of independent voters support impeaching the president.

The shift in opinion came after Robert Mueller made a rare public statement about his findings in the inquiry into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election. Since the investigation began and even after the Mueller report was finally released, Trump has been claiming exoneration. But in his statement to the press, Mueller reiterated that if he had been confident the president did not commit a crime, the report would have made that explicit.  

“Case is closed!” Trump tweeted after Mueller’s press conference last month. But to the 52 percent of Americans who now support impeachment, censure, or continued investigations, the case is anything but.

In the near future a power outage happens across the United States that darkens three quarters of US cities and the majority of rural America. Authorities scramble to find the reason for the black out while rumors and theories are spread from coast the coast.

Contemporary thought would suggest that Black America simply cannot adapt to the rapid industrial logistics of 21st century advancement because of genetic slow-wittedness or simple lethargy, and that 13th generation Black descendants of Africans are a intellectually dulled liability to humanity, ripe for extinction. Keyword in the above statement is why.

Making money at any expense has become the common norm, and cuts across every socioeconomic class, race, and age group. It is an addiction for some and a life-long necessity for others. Earning money by corporate or self-employment is by nature a contribution to the advancement of society so people are taught from their youth the necessity of working and earning a living. But the work/life balance over the past 50 years has been tilted toward the work end, ultimately neglecting the life end of the scale.
