Trump Imeachment Policy - Political Parties and Stances

Impeachment refers to the process by which a legislature’s lower house brings charges against a civil federal officer, the vice president, or the president for misconduct alleged to have been committed. President Trump was impeached by the House for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. On this issue, the views of the Democrats and Republicans are extremely polarized with 89% of Democrats hoping that Trump would be found guilty and therefore impeached, whereas 88% of Republican respondents hoped that President Trump would not be impeached. This polarization carried into the legislative branch, where representatives of each party echoed the statements of those in the electorate. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for Trump’s impeachment, saying that “The process of healing requires accountability. Because without accountability, this will happen again.” On the other hand is Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) who voted for Trump’s acquittal, saying that “The charge against former President Trump for inciting violence was contrary to the evidence.  And using the standard of incitement the House Managers proposed, many politicians could find themselves on the wrong side of impeachments in the future.”
