Poll: Majority Of Voters Believe Trump Is Abusing His Power As President

Source: Talking Points Memo


By ESME CRIBB Published MAY 24, 2017 3:45 PM

A majority of voters believe that President Donald Trump is abusing the powers of his office, according to a poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University.

Fifty-four percent of voters think Trump is abusing his power as President, according to the survey, while 43 percent think he is not.



In addition, a majority of those surveyed — 54 percent — disapproved of Trump’s decision to abruptly fire James Comey as director of the FBI, while only 36 percent approved. And a slim majority of 49 percent of respondents thought Trump’s termination of Comey reflected an abuse of power, while 47 percent of voters surveyed disagreed.




The Quinnipiac poll was conducted by landline and cell phone from May 17–23 among a national sample of 1,404 voters, and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

1. It takes phenomenal malfeasance to have disapproval numbers like those

Nixon was ok until after he fired the special prosecutor, about Oct 1973 as I recall.

Uncle Trump has done it in record time, and it now means that the majority has figured
it out, and it's not going away. The lamp is lit.

3. "Abuse of power" is an impeachable offense.

 

It was one of the charges against Nixon.
