On Wednesday, the U.S. House will debate whether to make Donald Trump the first President to be impeached twice. Still, a new NBCLX poll found voters are more interested in uniting the country than handing POTUS another dis-commendation on his way out the door.
First reported by Noah Pransky, the survey revealed that 50% of American voters want Congressional Democrats to prioritize issues that will bring Americans together compared to 31% who want Congress to throw the book at Trump.
The poll was conducted on Jan. 12, six days after a mob of Trump’s most ardent supporters ransacked the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to overthrow the election.
That doesn’t mean that voters don’t want Trump to be impeached — 53% said they do, and another 7% said they’re fans of the idea, but it’s not worth the time.
Additionally, 52% of voters said they want President-elect Joe Biden to shelve some of the issues he campaigned on to focus on bridging the political chasm between Republicans and Democrats. In late-November, just 42% of voters held that stance.
