Axios-Ipsos poll: More than half of Americans want Trump removed

Data: Ipsos/Axios survey; Chart: Axios Visuals

A majority of Americans wants President Trump removed from office immediately, with just a week to go before President-elect Biden is inaugurated, according to a new Ipsos poll for Axios.

The big picture: The 56% who want him removed is up, from 51% in another Ipsos poll last week. But three in four Republicans disagree. It's mostly Democrats and a slight majority of independents who want him gone.


  • The poll was taken just before Trump was impeached for a second time Wednesday for encouraging the rioters who stormed the Capitol last week.

By the numbers:

  • 94% of Democrats say Trump should be removed immediately.
  • 54% of independents agree.
  • Just 17% of Republicans agree.
  • Among those who identify themselves as traditional Republicans, 24% say Trump should be removed. But just 1% of self-identified Trump supporters are open to that — and 94% say no to removal.

Reality check: It's not going to happen. The Senate would have to hold a trial and convict Trump to remove him from office, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made it clear Wednesday that "there is simply no chance that a fair or serious trial could conclude before President-elect Biden is sworn in next week."

  • Vice President Mike Pence has already ruled out the other vehicle for ousting Trump: removing him under the 25th Amendment.

Flashback: It wasn't until August 1974 that a majority of Americans — 57% — supported removing Richard Nixon from office, after the House Judiciary Committee voted for impeachment and the Supreme Court ordered him to release damaging tapes of his conversations about Watergate, per the Pew Research Center.

Methodology: This Axios/Ipsos Poll was conducted Jan. 11-13, 2021, by Ipsos’ KnowledgePanel®. This poll is based on a nationally representative probability sample of 1,019 general population adults age 18 or older.

  • The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 3.4 percentage points.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
