Morning Joe: Record High Number Says Trump Committed Impeachable Offense

Half of Americans say they back impeachment, up three points since over two weeks ago.

Mika Brzezinski presented some new polling in light of the impeachment news.

"In just a week's time, the political ground beneath the president is rapidly shifting. A new poll that shows a 13-point swing in favor of impeachment, coming just days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal inquiry.

"The new Politico Morning Consult online poll shows a 7-point jump over the weekend, while opposition dropped six points, leaving voters 43 to 43. They said President Trump committed an impeachable offense -- a record high.

"In a HuffPost/YouGov poll, half of Americans say they back impeachment, up three points since over two weeks ago. And an NPR/PBS News hour poll conducted on Wednesday also showed support for voters of the House impeachment inquiry, 49 to 48 percent."

Shortly after the election, a pollster told me the magic number was 35 -- as in, when Trump's support drops to 35% and stays there, he becomes radioactive and Republicans will absolutely have to dump him.

I love a good challenge. Considering his numbers are so bad before the hearings even get going, I think we can get there. How about it?
