A new study is painting a picture of where Americans stand on one of the most discussed issues of 2017: President Trump’s presidency.
According to a study by the Public Religion Research Institute, 40 percent of Americans believe that President Trump should be impeached, while 56 percent think he should remain in office. When it comes to job performance, the PRRI study states that 41 percent approve of the job he’s doing, though 56 percent do not.
When the study breaks down the ethnic demographics of those who want Trump impeached, both Latinos and Black Americans are in favor at a rate of 52 percent and 72 percent, respectively. White Americans overwhelmingly approve of Trump staying in the White House, with only 31 percent calling on his impeachment.
The numbers change a little when participants in the study were asked if they think Trump is governing with their best interest in mind. Fifty-three percent of those polled do not believe Trump is looking out for them while 46 percent believe he is doing so at least somewhat. Once again, a majority of white Americans, 54 percent, believe he is looking out for their best interest, while 40 percent of Latinos and 11 percent of Black Americans believe this to be true.
One thing that most were able to agree on, regardless of race, class, gender or education level, was that Trump is really looking out for America’s wealthiest citizens. Eighty-four percent of Latinos, 85 percent of Black Americans and 91 percent of White Americans agreed that Trump is more concerned with the needs of the wealthy.
