Democrats say Americans want Trump impeached - here's what new poll says

Donald Trump Tweets Apparent Endorsement of New Poll — But Here's What It Really Says About Him

Trump touts a poll that's terrible for him

The new poll by Quinnipiac University found that 79 percent of respondents supported citizenship for the immigrant youths, while 11 percent said the youths should be deported.

By contrast, 49 percent of voters believe former President Barack Obama was more responsible than Trump for America's current economic conditions; only 40 percent said Trump deserved more credit.

Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer has already spent millions to try to persuade Americans that Trump should be impeached, and he's vowed to spend more in what many see as a primer for his own presidential aspirations.

Moreover, 39 percent of voters graded Trump's first year in office as a failing "F", compared to only 16 percent who gave him an "A". Close to 6 in 10 voters, 59 percent, disapproved of his performance in office, up from 44 percent a year ago.

Sixty-six percent is the highest positive rating for the economy since Quinnipiac University began asking the question in 2001.

Gruden returns as Raiders' head coach
On the field, Gruden will take over for Jack Del Rio after the latter was sacked following a 6-10 season. Davis also said he wouldn't have fired Del Rio if he didn't believe Gruden would sign on as coach.

The poll says that 51 percent of Americans answered that Democrats should not impeach the president if they regain the House in the midterm elections in 2018.

Asked to describe Trump's first year in one word, 69 people said "disaster" and 62 "chaotic".

In a series of tweets a day after the book was released, Trump lashed out, saying "throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart" and later adding that he's a "very stable genius".

The survey of 1,106 registered voters was conducted January 5-9 with a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points.
