“Congress lets justice slip through the cracks, learning nothing from Trump’s first impeachment.
A slim majority of Americans think the Senate should convict former President Trump in his upcoming impeachment trial and bar him from being able to hold federal office in the future, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll has found.
The new poll, which was conducted Friday and Saturday and has a nationally representative probability sample of 508 respondents, found that 56 percent of Americans backed the both actions.
That support was starkly partisan, however. More than 9 in 10 Democrats backed both conviction and a ban on holding public office in the future, while 8 in 10 Republicans opposed both.
