A majority of Americans now believe President Donald Trump should be removed from office before his term ends on Jan. 20, when President-elect Joe Biden will be sworn in.
A new poll published Sunday by ABC News/Ipsos found that 56% of those surveyed want Trump to be removed before Inauguration Day. A higher figure – 67% – blame the commander-in-chief for the riots in Washington this week that left 5 people dead after a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol building, overpowering police and ransacking the complex.
The chaotic incident followed Trump’s “Save America Rally” in Washington, during which he told his supporters to “stop the steal” of the election he lost to Biden. Trump urged them to head to the Capitol to demonstrate against Congress certifying Biden’s victory.
