Most Americans are in favor of convicting Trump



 The impeachment trial of former US President Donald Trump is set to begin on Tuesday. In the run-up to the trial, a majority of U.S. citizens voted in favor of convicting Trump.

 Although most citizens of the country voted against Trump's first impeachment trial. 

A joint survey by US media ABC News and Ipsos published last Sunday revealed such information.

For the first time in U.S. history, Trump is facing impeachment as a former president. Trump has been accused of "inciting rebellion" by storming the US Capitol on January 6. 

However, the outcome of that trial is very much certain. A 100-member Senate requires two-thirds support to convict Trump. 

But Trump could be acquitted for the second time without the necessary support. 

Democrats, however, claim that Trump's failure to hold him accountable and neglect his responsibilities will send a message to future presidents that crime can be avoided.

Because, most members of Trump's Republican Party have voted against Trump's impeachment trial.

As most Republican senators claim, Trump is no longer in charge. So it is unreasonable to remove him from office.

 They also called Trump's impeachment trial unconstitutional. 

Democrats, however, claim that Trump's failure to hold him accountable and neglect his responsibilities will send a message to future presidents that crime can be avoided.


 So even if Trump leaves power, it is vital to judge him. This will make future presidents aware of their work. Democrats also want to ensure that Trump does not return to power through that trial.

According to a poll by ABC News and Ipsos, 56 percent of Americans say Trump should be convicted and prevented from returning to power.

However, 43 percent are against convicting Trump. The trial in the Senate began in January last year after Trump was first indicted in the lower house of Congress.



 At the time, 47 percent of Americans voted in favor of convicting Trump, according to a poll by ABC News and the Washington Post. 

And 49 percent of Americans say Trump should not be convicted.

Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6, accusing him of rigging the presidential election. Trump was indicted for the second time on January 13, a week before he stepped down.

Despite disagreements between Democrats and Republican senators over Trump's impeachment trial, public support for Trump's own party, the Republican Party, has grown. 


 The first president in US history to be indicted twice. Earlier, Trump was impeached in the House of Representatives in 2019 on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

 However, he was acquitted in the then-majority Republican Senate.

Despite disagreements between Democrats and Republican senators over Trump's impeachment trial, public support for Trump's own party, the Republican Party, has grown. 

According to a poll last year by ABC News and the Washington Post, only 9 percent of Republicans voted to remove Trump. But in the new survey, that number has risen to 15 percent.

 And 92 percent of the Democratic Party is in favor of convicting Trump. 54% of neutral voters are in favor of convicting Trump and 45% are against it.

Democrat leaders last Thursday asked Trump to attend Tuesday's impeachment hearing. But it was immediately dismissed by members of Trump's legal team.

 As a result, it will not be possible for Democrats to present Trump at the hearing. However, it is unclear how long the trial will last, but it is expected to end soon. 

As there is no clear mention in the constitution about the impeachment trial of the former president, there is still ambiguity about how the trial will proceed. So the leaders are struggling to start the trial. 

Several leaders from both parties, including Senate Majority Democrat Chuck Schumer and minority Republican leader Mitch McConnell, have long discussed the first phase of the trial. 

The discussion is being continued. The Senate will pass the action plan before the trial begins.

 It is expected that both parties will reach a certain standard for the start of the trial.

However, the duration of the second trial is expected to be shorter than the first impeachment of Trump. 

The first impeachment trial took three weeks to complete. Justin Goodman, a spokesman for the count, said the Senate would end the trial quickly.
