Trump’s upward trajectory is likely, at least in part, because of the economy. While most people have generally thought the economy is good, a booming 76% said it was good in the CNN poll out this week. That was the highest percentage since 2001.
Meanwhile, the impeachment of Trump doesn’t seem to be making much of an impact on the polls. That could be because fewer voters say it’s an extremely or very important issue to their vote than any other issue tested by CNN in November. Additionally, it could be because opposition to impeaching and removing Trump is higher than Trump’s popularity ratings. This means more talk of impeachment may actually move Trump’s approval rating up.
