A new poll released by Edgewater Research on Tuesday found that most Louisiana Democrat and minority voters support the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.

The statewide survey, which was conducted on November 11, 2019, polled 661 likely voters across Louisiana. A likely voter was defined as a person who had voted in at least three of the last five statewide elections. The survey was conducted via phone.


While, as a whole, Louisiana residents did not support impeachment (54.6 percent not in support of impeachment), that’s not a surprising result for an overwhelmingly red state. Forty-one percent of survey respondents were in support of impeachment. There was little gender disparity across the survey, with 41 percent of female-identifying voters and 42 percent of male-identifying voters in support of impeachment.

As might be expected, Louisiana democrats overwhelmingly support impeachment, with 75 percent of Democratic voters saying they support the impeachment, while only 10 percent of Republican voters in support. The Edgewater poll also found that 35 percent of Independent voters support impeachment.

The other large disparity shown by the poll exists between minority and Caucasian voters.  Minority voters overwhelmingly support impeachment, with 64 percent of Black voters and 55 percent of those identifying as “other” than Black or Caucasian in support of the impeachment proceedings. However, only 29 percent of Louisiana Caucasian voters say that they support impeaching President Trump.
