Trump Beating Warren, Biden In Iowa as Just 7% Call Impeachment an 'Important' Issue
President holding his own in the state in election matchup
President Donald Trump seems to be holding steady ground in Iowa, where he is beating top Democrats Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden in an election matchup, with voters dismissing impeachment calls.
According to the Emerson Polling survey, just 7% consider impeachment the “most important” issue.
In order of importance, they listed the economy at 33%, healthcare at 19%, and social issues at 10%.
But even among Democrats, impeachment does not have much weight, with the top issue being healthcare at 25%, the economy at 17%, and the environment at 14%.
Spencer Kimball, director of Emerson Polling, said:
“The Democrats have some work to do in Iowa convincing voters that impeachment is a top priority of Congress; 67% of Democrats in Iowa support impeaching the president, but only 10% identify it as the most important issue in deciding their vote for president."
The survey showed that Biden has held strong at 23% among Democrat voters.
He is now even with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has risen with the support of those who backed Bernie Sanders, currently fourth in the race at 13%.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg is third at 16%, said Emerson.

On Wednesday, Trump predicted that Republicans would take back the House and win the presidency in 2020 due to the Democrats' "impeachment fraud."
"95% Approval Rating in the Republican Party. Thank you! Just won two Congressional Seats in North Carolina, & a Governors runoff in Louisiana, which Republicans should now win! Because of Impeachment Fraud, we will easily take back the House, add in the Senate, & again win Pres!"
On Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House will not vote on beginning formal impeachment proceedings against Trump, for now.
