A formal impeachment inquiry has failed to dent President Trump’s re-election bid — with a new survey showing he would likely defeat the Democratic front-runners in head-to-head battles.
The poll of 1,000 registered voters taken this weekend as the House of Representatives prepared a formal impeachment vote found Trump defeating former Vice President Joe Biden by 3 percentage points and Sen. Bernie Sanders by 5 points.
Trump also held an 8-point lead over Sen. Elizabeth Warren and a 10-point lead over South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Peter Buttigieg, according to the USA Today/Suffolk University Poll published Monday.
A poll released Sunday also found Trump’s job performance rating ticked up in the weeks of the impeachment hearings.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday knocked the request for witnesses at the impeachment trial and called the impeachment articles drafted by House Democrats a “slapdash work product” that was “dumped on us in the Senate.”
