Voters Sound Off on Impeachment Witnesses

(NewsReady.com) – A new SurveyUSA poll shows that the majority of registered voters believe that witnesses with firsthand knowledge of events directly related to President Trump’s impeachment should be allowed in the Senate.

According to the 4,096 registered voters who responded to this poll, the data showed overwhelming support across the political spectrum:

  • Republican: 71% yes — 15% no — 14% unsure
  • Independent: 81% yes — 7% no — 12% unsure
  • Democrat: 93% yes — 4% no — 3% unsure

The survey also asked what the Senate ought to do if Trump’s legal defense team attempted to keep witnesses out of the trial. Republicans were more evenly split with just 32% saying the Senate should yield to the president’s team. Of those registered as Democrats, 63% were adamant that witnesses testify. Just 44% of Independents insisted on witness testimony.

Many voters want Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to bring on witnesses, but his current plan doesn’t promise to have them present during the trial. He justified this decision by saying “What was good enough for President Clinton is good enough for President Trump,” earlier this month.

  1. This county is a republic and we as Americans being separated due to political parties is horrible. Have we not remember the past during the Civil War? We must stand together or our nation being divided will crumble. We as a people should desire to seek the truth.

  2. I take these polls with a grain of salt. As we all know the majority of people hang up as soon as they say ‘ I’m taking a poll ‘ – HELLO, HELLO !! ? OR the real people ARE WORKING FOR A LIVING and NOT drawing a welfare check sitting on their asses at home. Most of these polls – if not ALL, don’t represent the majority of the people
