Gallup poll: More Democrats want Trump out now than did Nixon during Watergate in 1974
Nov. 5 (UPI) — More American Democrats want President Donald Trump impeached than did those who wanted the same for President Richard Nixon at the height of the Watergate scandal nearly 50 years ago, a survey showed Tuesday.
The Gallup poll said 87 percent of Democratic respondents said they want Trump impeached and removed from office. In 1974, just days before Nixon resigned, just 71 percent of U.S. Democrats said they wanted him out.
Ninety-two percent of Republican respondents said they don’t want Trump impeached. In 1974, for Nixon, that figure was 59 percent.
Gallup polled more than 1,500 adults in the United States for the survey, which has a margin of error of 3 points.
