MANCHESTER, N.H. - Voters in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire are accustomed to taking the lead on important political decisions. With a critical 2020 presidential election looming, these voters are increasingly occupied with the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry. And their opinions are as divided as those in the rest of the nation.
Outside a recent rally for former Vice President Joe Biden — the focus of President Donald Trump's alleged attempt to invite foreign interference into the 2020 election — a group of Trump's supporters protested, saying the impeachment inquiry was proof of the country's toxic partisan atmosphere.
"People in New Hampshire are vehemently opposed to the impeachment," said Lou Gargiulo, vice chair of Trump for New Hampshire. "They view it as something that does nothing to help the country, only to further divide. It's a divisive process that serves no positive purpose."
Trump's July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, in which Trump pressured Zelenskiy for help digging up dirt on Biden and his son, Hunter, is being viewed very differently by Americans through the prism of political ideologies and partisanship.
A composite average of public opinion surveys by the polling website Five Thirty-Eight shows the country is split, with 49.5% of voters supporting impeachment and 44.2% opposed. Broken out, many surveys by respected firms such as Pew Research and Gallup show a majority of voters in favor of the impeachment of Trump. According to the Gallup Poll on Oct. 16, 52% were in favor of impeachment while 46% were opposed.
