Former President Donald Trump-Poll- Trump Still Popular Among Supporters After 2nd Impeachment Trial-ss-Featured

Former President Donald Trump remains popular among his supporters, a new poll finds. This comes in the wake of his acquittal in his second impeachment a few weeks earlier.

According to a poll conducted by Suffolk University and USA Today, 46% of his supporters would leave the GOP to join a new party Trump would form if he decided to do so. Meanwhile, 27% of the former president’s supporters say they would stay in the Republican Party.

In the same survey, about half of the respondents said that the GOP needs to be “more loyal” to the former president even if they have to lose support from other established GOP personalities. Meanwhile, 19% said the party should do the opposite and align themselves more with the established Republicans.

This survey involved 1,000 Trump supporters and was conducted through landline and cellphone calls last week. It has a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percentage points.

Earlier in February, Trump was acquitted in his second impeachment trial by the senate. He is the only U.S. president who had to face impeachment twice. He is also the only U.S. president who needed to face an impeachment trial even though he’s already out of office.

Only 57 senators voted for his conviction, which is not enough as a two-thirds majority is needed for this to push through. On the other hand. 43 decided to vote against his conviction.

This impeachment came in the wake of the U.S. Capitol siege, which happened last Jan. 6. Many critics slammed Trump, claiming that he had a hand in inciting the violence.
