  • Impeachment Hearings Haven’t Swayed Voters; Many Ask, ‘Where’s Biden?’

    The House impeachment hearings haven’t moved voters so far, with a plurality still expecting President Trump to be reelected next November.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 18% of Likely U.S. Voters think Trump will be impeached before serving his full term in office. Seventeen percent (17%) felt that way in September, down from a high of 29% when Rasmussen Reports first asked this question in late December 2017.

    Forty-five percent (45%) still believe the president will be reelected in 2020, basically unchanged in surveys over the past year. Twenty-six percent (26%) say he will be defeated by the Democratic nominee, but this finding has been trending down from 33% in late July to 28% two months ago. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
