Poll: Trump’s reelection prospects hold steady amid impeachment inquiry

President Trump’s reelection prospects remain unchanged amid the launch of a House impeachment inquiry, according to a new Monmouth University survey. 

The poll, which was conducted last week, found that 57 percent of voters polled said it was time for a new president, while 39 percent said Trump should be reelected in 2020. 

The results reflected no change from the last Monmouth University Poll survey, which was conducted in August. 

{mosads}The poll comes after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced last week that the House would launch a formal impeachment inquiry amid allegations from a whistleblower that Trump sought to persuade Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Trump has since stepped up his attacks against Biden, zeroing in on the former vice president’s efforts to pressure Ukraine to dismiss a senior prosecutor who at one point had investigated an energy company where Biden’s son had served as a board member.

The same poll found Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) with the highest favorability ratings among voters. 

Biden has a 46 percent favorable rating and 45 percent unfavorable rating with voters, while Warren has a 42 percent favorable rating and 40 percent unfavorable rating. 

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) came in with the highest unfavorable ratings at 49 percent, compared to a 42 percent favorable rating. 

Warren has outpaced Sanders and front-runner Biden in some polls.

The survey from Monmouth University Poll was conducted Sept. 23-29 among 1,161 adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
