WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Hill’s Alexander Bolton published an exclusive report on new Club for Growth PAC polling that shows West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin “could face strong political blowback if he votes to convict Trump on one or two articles of impeachment passed by the Democratic-controlled House,” and should switch parties to become a Republican.
“The poll generally shows overwhelming opposition to removing Trump from office. Nearly seven in ten — 69 percent — West Virginia voters said they oppose doing so while only 27 percent voiced support. Overall, 67 percent of West Virginia voters approve of the job Trump is doing while 31 percent don’t approve and 2 percent had no opinion.”
“The poll also found a plurality of voters would view Manchin more favorably if he changed his party affiliation to Republican. Forty-three percent of voters said they would view Manchin more favorably if he were a Republican while 27 percent said they would see him less favorably and 30 percent said it wouldn’t make a difference.”
