  • Will Trump Resign?

    I don't think so, but it sure would be nice-and it would be good for the country.

    The Donald Trump presidency will end with his resignation, and it will come "suddenly," with little warning, according to political commentator Keith Olbermann. Speaking on the latest edition of his GQ series "The Resistance" on Tuesday, Olbermann, a former MSNBC host, said he believed that Trump would call it quits when special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into his campaign's links to Russia grow too close for comfort.

    Will President Donald Trump jump before he can be pushed? That was the view put forward by Trump's former ghostwriter last week, after one of the president's worst weeks on the job. Those looking to make some money off the White House turbulence increasingly agree. The odds of Trump resigning from presidency are shorter than ever.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    Americans are about evenly split over impeaching President Donald Trump and removing him from office, as support for that move has risen among independents and Republicans, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS after the announcement of a formal impeachment inquiry by House Democrats last week.

    About half, 47%, support impeaching the President and removing him from office, up from 41% who felt that way in a CNN poll in May. The current level matches the high point for impeaching Trump in previous CNN polling -- 47% said they felt that way in September 2018.


    The share who favor impeachment and removal from office now narrowly outpaces the share who say they don't feel that way -- a first in CNN polling -- although the two figures are within the poll's margin of sampling error. Opposition stands at 45% in the new poll, down from 54% who said so in May and the lowest point in CNN polling on this topic.
    The change since May has largely come among independents and Republicans. About three-quarters of Democrats favor impeaching Trump and removing him from office, roughly the same as in May, while among independents, support for impeachment and removal has risen 11 points to 46% among independents and 8 points to 14% among Republicans.
    The shift has also come notably among younger Americans. Sixty percent of those under age 35 now say they support impeaching Trump and removing him from office, up from 43% who felt that way in May, while support for the move among older Americans has held about even (42% now vs. 40% in May). Previous CNN polling on impeachment has not found such a stark gap by age.

    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts

      No.

      Something like this coming from Keith Olbermann is meaningless. He's about as objective as

            I seriously doubt it. First, Trump really hasn't done anything worth impeaching him for. Sure, he's a troll and a provocateur, but he really hasn't done any "high crimes or misdemeanors." Mostly what he's done is pi$$ the Left off. That's enough for them to impeach him, but it's also enough to ensure they get slammed in election after election for a decade afterwards at least-- something they won't grasp as it happens.

            The second issue is, impeaching Trump over a triviality opens the door to the Republicans returning the favor in the future. That is an absolute certainty. Of course, again, the Left isn't looking past the next election so they'll wonder how and why it happened if and when it does.

              They impeached Clinton for a wet spot on a woman's dress, pretty much bog standard for modern US politics as I far can see

                  He was acquitted.

                  And at the root of the matter still for something other countries might consider poor taste, but little more.

                      Well he was accused of lying to the Grand Jury about the peculiarities of the wet spot on the woman's dress, as I recall everything revolved about the contextual meaning of the word "is"

                      The point is, US politics is rarely about profound matters….

                          What are the correct figures then?

                          And they most certainly are relevant? What do you think caused Nixon to resign in 1974? It was public support for impeachment and the Republicans in Congress turning on him when it became obvious that he broke the law and with it his presidential oath.
