Dem pollster says Trump's base will be galvanized if he's impeached on weak evidence

“I think if he’s impeached it will depend on the support case for his impeachment," Murphy, a partner at ALG Research, told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on Monday.

"If it’s premature prior to the Mueller report, and things like that that very clearly point to his own knowledge and clear wrongdoing, then I think you’re potentially right," she said. “People will feel that they are sort of inflated charges against him and that he’s being unfairly maligned."

House Democrats are talking more about potentially moving to impeach Trump. However, the majority of Americans do not appear convinced that he should be impeached.

CNN poll released last week found that 50 percent of respondents said Trump should not be impeached and removed from office, while 43 percent said he should.
