AP-NORC Poll: Trump approval steady as impeachment rages

October 31, 2019 - 8:00 am

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's approval rating is holding steady as the House presses forward with an impeachment probe that could imperil his presidency.

That's according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

But there are warning signs in the survey for Trump.

Though Trump remains overwhelmingly popular within his own party, some Republicans have a critical view of the president's honesty, his discipline and his respect for America's democratic norms.

Overall, 61% of Americans say Trump has little or no respect for the country's democratic institutions and traditions. That's a matter that strikes at the heart of the impeachment inquiry focused in part on whether Trump sought a foreign government's help for personal political gain.
