Poll: Americans worried Impeachment is distracting Congress from important issues

A new poll indicates that a majority of Americans, in a warning sign to Democrats, by a 50-46 percent margin say the impeachment proceedings are distracting Congress from more important issues.

The survey conducted by Washington Post-Schar School, shows also that just under half of people questioned say the House should vote to impeach the president.

Support for impeachment is up by double digits from Washington Post polls conducted earlier this year – well before Trump came under fire over his July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which he urged Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter over their dealings in the eastern European country that’s been battling Russia. Fueled by whistleblower complaints and a transcript of the call released by the White House, Democrats argue the president was asking a foreign country to potentially interfere in a U.S. election.
