A small majority of respondents – 51 percent – said they would oppose Trump’s impeachment conviction should the Senate find him guilty, his supporters’ efforts to storm the Capitol, and award Congressional certification to the election of the electoral college last month bother to have found guilty.

By comparison, 41 percent believe that Trump should be convicted on the charges, while another 8 percent are undecided on the matter.

The poll, conducted just days before Trump’s impeachment process began, suggests the former president continues to receive strong support from the same voters who backed his unsuccessful offer for a second term in the White House.

Trump carried Kentucky nearly 26 points in the November presidential election, marking one of its largest profit margins in any state.

Trump’s Senate impeachment trial – his second in just over a year – began this week. The House Democrats argued that not only did the former president cause an uproar in the US Capitol on January 6th, but he laid the foundations for months on his false claim that the 2020 election had been “stolen” from him.

Trump’s lawyers, meanwhile, have alleged that the former president’s rhetoric related to the election protects freedom of expression under the First Amendment.

Kentucky Republican voters overwhelmingly believe that Trump should be acquitted of the charges. 86 percent oppose his condemnation and only 11 percent support it. Independent voters are also leaning for Trump. 61 percent think he should be acquitted and 29 percent are in favor of the conviction, according to Mason-Dixon’s poll.

69 percent of Democratic voters want the former president to be convicted, while 11 percent don’t.

39 percent of respondents said they approve of his work in the White House, while nearly half of those polled – 49 percent – disapproved of the new president’s performance. Twelve percent are not sure.

Biden’s approval numbers suggest that his standing in the state has not improved much since November, when he moved about 36 percent of the vote to Trump’s 62 percent. Still, his lackluster support in the state should come as no surprise; No Democratic candidate for Kentucky has won since former President Clinton in 1996.

The Mason-Dixon poll is based on telephone interviews of 625 registered voters in Kentucky, conducted February 1-4. The sampling error rate is 4 percentage points.
