Two in Five Americans Favor Trump Impeachment Hearings

Two in Five Americans Favor Trump Impeachment Hearings

It's still too early to make a definitive projection on how Democratic candidates will fare in 2018 House and Senate elections, but it's certainly looking good for them at the moment.

The November 21 national poll found 60% of USA women say they've been sexually harassed; Trump job approval still stuck below 40%.

The survey, conducted among 1,001 adults nationwide via home and cell phones from December 14 to 17, is also in line with other polls that have been released recently and suggest a fracturing of Trump's support base with 76 percent of Republicans and Republican party supporters now approving of the president's job performance, down from 84 percent in February, Sputnik reported.

Cook Political Report, a top nonpartisan election handicapper, recently predicted a "wave" of Democratic wins in 2018, and a Fox News Poll conducted in October showed Democrats leading Republicans by 15 points on a generic ballot.

The tax plan that Republicans are soon expected to pass has grown more unpopular in the last two months, with almost two-thirds of Americans believing it's designed mostly to help corporations and the wealthy, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Among independent respondents to the CNN poll, Democrats scored a 16-point lead.

56 percent of those who responded said they were most likely to vote Democrat. It has a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points.

Echoing this sentiment, 45% of respondents said they think the country is worse off since Trump became president, 30% think the country is better off, and 24% think the country is in the same spot.

And on the fate of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program - which allows young adults who were brought to the USA illegally by their parents to stay in this country legally - 62 percent say Congress should continue it, while 19 percent believe Congress should take no action so the program ends.

The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll was conducted among 736 registered voters between December 13-15.
