While a lot of Democrats might like the idea of a celebratory drink should the New York tycoon be ousted, a new survey suggests a little more than 73 per cent of them would be prepared to give up booze for life to see it happen.
The poll was released by detox.net, a group seeking to promote awareness and drug and alcohol detoxification.
It found that only 17 per cent of Republicans would give up alcohol in exchange for the impeachment of Mr Trump. However, it also found that around 31 per cent of Republicans would forego drinking if the media were to stop saying negative things about the President.
This week, congressman Brad Sherman of California formally introduced an article of impeachment against Mr Trump, accusing the president of obstructing justice during the investigation of Russia’s alleged 2016 election interference. It was the first time an elected official had offered an impeachment article against Mr Trump.
However, the chances of Mr Trump being impeached still seem very slight. At the moment, the Republicans control both houses of Congress and there is little evidence that for all the controversy Mr Trump creates, many Republicans are ready to give up on him.
