lol: Washington Post/ABC Poll Is Bad News For Democrats, Impeachment, and Bill Kristol's Billionaire Dark Money Donors

Cry.

President Trump's approval rating has climbed to match the highest of his presidency, boosted by majority approval of his economic stewardship even as Americans remain deeply divided on whether the Senate should remove him from office, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.

The Post-ABC poll finds 44 percent of Americans approve of Trump's overall job performance and 51 percent disapprove. While views of Trump remain negative, Trump's approval rating is significantly improved from his 38 percent mark in late October.

A 56 percent majority approves of Trump’s handling of the economy, up 10 percentage points from September and his strongest rating on his marquee issue since entering office. By contrast, 39 percent approve of Trump’s handling of his impeachment, while 50 percent disapprove.

...

The nationwide survey, which overlapped with the start of arguments in Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate this week, finds 47 percent of the public saying senators should remove Trump from office and 49 percent saying they should not. Those views are similar to a Post-ABC poll in December, in which 49 percent supported Trump's removal while 46 percent were opposed.

The numbers are "similar," yes, but now reversed.

A friend underscores that this is a poll of adults, not likely voters and not even registered voters. Which is traditionally the very best sample for Democrats, and overcounts Democrats.
