TRUMP’S DIRE STRAITS: TRUMP-RUSSIA TIMELINE UPDATE THROUGH SEPT. 30, 2019

Trump is approaching Nixon territory. According to a Quinnipiac poll released on Sept. 30, 47% of Americans support his impeachment AND removal from office. On the day Nixon resigned, that percentage was 57%.

In less than a week, Trump closed–in a bad way–a 20 point gap.
