Eighty-five percent of Republicans and 51 percent of independents were confident in Trump's reelection effort, compared to 35 percent of Democrats.

"President Trump never said to the Ukrainian President 'do this and you'll get your aid.' It is simply not here", Conway told CNN's Dana Bash, referencing Trump's demand that Ukraine investigate Joe Biden and his son for alleged corruption.

That kind of promotional tweet would be a violation of ethics policies if it experienced arrive from any federal staff other than the president, reported Liz Hempowicz, the director of public plan at the Venture on Authorities Oversight, a nonpartisan govt watchdog group.

Televised public hearings featuring US officials testifying in Congress about alleged wrongdoing by Trump could crowd out other issues like the economy and immigration as voters turn their minds to the November 2020 election.


The tweet also highlights a well-practiced tactic of Trump hoping to change a weak point into an assault on his opponents.

In this case, Trump has zeroed in on Biden's son Hunter, going as far as to ask foreign governments, including Ukraine and China, to investigate the Biden family's business dealings.

Bash then pressed Conway about the nature of Trump's now-infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which sparked House Democrats' impeachment inquiry.

More American Democrats want President Donald Trump impeached than did those who wanted the same for President Richard Nixon at the height of the Watergate scandal almost 50 years ago, a survey showed Tuesday.


"The Biden relatives was Compensated OFF, pure and uncomplicated!" Trump insisted in a tweet last month, despite no evidence suggesting that the former vice president received any payments or that Hunter Biden did anything illegal.

During a campaign rally Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump reads a statement made by Michelle Fields, a former reporter for Breitbart News Service who alleges that Trump's campaign manager Corey Lewandowski assaulted her at a recent press conference, on March 29, 2016 in Janesville, Wisconsin. He helps make repeated excursions to his for-profit golfing clubs, carries on to obtain dues at his customers-only homes, and hosts fundraisers and overseas delegations at inns that bear his family's identify.

As House Democrats begin to release transcripts of closed-door testimony and prepare for public hearings as part of their impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, public support for impeaching the president has fallen.

Trump Jr. has become the prime warmup act for his father, headlining events, appearing in interviews and drawing speculation about his own potential future in politics.


Biden's campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
