    Voters approve of Romney's impeachment vote to convict Trump 50%-39%, poll finds

    It's interesting to see popular opinion moving in Romney's favor on this. He's becoming a bit of a martyr here in Utah and it seems to be moving his way nationally outside of Trump's base.

    By a more than 10-point margin, registered voters approve of Republican Sen. Mitt Romney's decision to break with his party and vote to convict President Donald Trump on one of the articles of impeachment against him, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll conducted after last week's vote.

    The Utah senator's vote marked the first time in U.S. history that a senator voted to convict a president from his own party in an impeachment trial.

    Half of the voters surveyed said they approved of Romney's vote to find Trump guilty of abuse of power, while 39% said they disapproved and 10% said they didn't know or didn't have an opinion.

    It appears that 48% of the sample were registered Democrat; 40% registered Republican; the rest Other.

    Gee, I am not surprised that 50% approved.

    I wonder how that will translate when Mitt is up for re-election...as a Republican. :
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Those aren't the registered voters samples. Those are generic congressional ballot numbers.

    The party ID numbers were 34.2% D, 25.2% R, and 40.6% I.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    Same results as the Utah poll of mostly republicans,

    The poll also found that 49 percent of all registered voters viewed Romney’s vote positively, while 40 percent viewed it negatively; 11 percent said they were not sure.

    Romney said God ordained he will become president. He should QUICK jump into the Democratic Party's primary. He should be able to win the Democratic primary by a landslide!

    Run, Mitt, Run. Run for president as a Democrat. They love you!
    How do you like being under government ordered house arrest for the crime of existing?
