More than three times as many U.S. voters say the failed attempt to oust President Donald Trump actually made him stronger politically than think it weakened him, a new Rasmussen Poll reveals.

Only 16% say the impeachment ordeal made Trump weaker, while more than half (55%) say it strengthened him politically.

“Has the unsuccessful attempt to remove President Trump from office made him weaker or stronger politically?”

  • Weaker: 16%
  • Stronger: 55%
  • No Impact: 23%
  • Not Sure: 5%

Even a plurality of self-described liberals (48%-44%) say impeachment made Trump stronger rather than weaker, as did Conservatives (71%-27%), Moderates (60%-29%), those Not Sure (41%-40%) of their political stance.

What’s more – by a nearly two-to-one margin – voters want Democrats to stop trying to remove Trump from office and turn their attention to other issues.

“Should House Democrats continue their efforts to remove President Trump from office, or should they focus on other issues?”

  • House Democrats Should Continue: 32%
  • House Democrats Should Focus on Other Issues: 62%
  • Not Sure: 6%

Results of the national survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters, conducted February 6 and 9, 2020, have a Margin of Sampling Error of +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
