Detox, the advocacy group behind the recent poll, interviewed 1,013 men and women who identify as active alcohol consumers.
The group revealed that 73.3 percent of Democrats would never drink again if Trump were impeached “tomorrow,” while perhaps a surprisingly high 17 percent of Republicans would give up the bottle.
On Wednesday, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-California) became the first legislator to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump. He is accusing the president of obstructing justice during an investigation into accusations that Russia interfered in the 2016 US presidential election. Sherman cites Trump’s abrupt firing of former FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the Department of Justice investigation.
Many in the political arena see Sherman´s action as more symbolic due to the lack of secured votes, rather than an actual attempt to throw the president out of the Oval Office. Sherman is also facing resistance from some Democrats in his own party, such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California.
The report highlighted that there were more Democrats who participated in the poll than there were Republicans. Forty-three percent identified themselves as Democrats, while only 21 percent said they were Republicans. The other 36 percent identified as other.
