NBC News conducted a poll asking voters how they felt about impeachment. To NBC’s surprise, the question did not get the responses they were planning on.
According to The Daily Wire:
VOTERS ON IMPEACHMENT:
“Waste of Time”
“Nothing Concerning” with Ukraine Call

NBC News approached voters in early voting states — Minnesota, New Hampshire, and South Carolina — and asked them about Democrats’ attempt to impeach President Donald Trump with less than a year before the 2020 election.
“People out there don’t talk about impeachment a lot at any events,” National Review Editor Rich Lowry told host Chuck Todd. “It doesn’t come up.”
A recent Emerson poll found that voters in Iowa, perhaps the most critical state for Democrats in the presidential primary, care very little about impeachment.
“The most important issue for voters in Iowa in deciding for whom to vote for president is the economy at 33%, followed by healthcare at 19%, and social issues at 10%,” the poll found. “Impeachment ranked seven out of nine at 6%, ahead of education at 5% and foreign policy at 3%.”
Another poll highlighted only showed around 36% of people wanting the House to vote to impeach President Trump.
