Daily Beast: A majority of Americans would like to see President Donald Trump removed from office before Jan. 20, when President-elect Joe Biden will be sworn in, according to a new poll by ABC News/IPSOS.
The survey also found that two-thirds of Americans hold him directly responsible for the deadly insurrection on Capitol Hill last Wednesday.
The poll found that 56 percent of Americans want him gone, while just 43 percent say he should stay in place. Of those who do not see the need for his removal, 45 percent did say his actions last week were wrong.
As expected, the poll reflects the sharp party divisions with 94 percent of Democrats and 13 percent of Republicans expressing a desire for his removal. A majority—58 percent—of independents also want him gone, according to the poll.
And from the Guardian:
A majority of Americans believes Donald Trump should be removed from power before Joe Biden is sworn in to replace him, according to a poll released on Sunday.
In the survey by ABC News and Ipsos, 56% of respondents said Trump should be removed before inauguration day, 20 January.
A higher number, 67%, held Trump responsible for the violence at the US Capitol this week which left five people dead.
67% believe President Trump deserves a great deal/good amount of blame for the rioting in DC.

At the Ellipse near the White House on Wednesday, the president told supporters to “fight like hell” to overturn an election defeat he claims without evidence was caused by voter fraud.
