This is known as the fallacy of the complex question.

The quintessential example of it is this: Have you stopped beating your wife yet?

In both cases, there are really two questions rolled into one.

(I notice that you do not even consider another alternative in your poll: i.e. that he will neither (1) be impeached (and convicted); nor (2) forced to resign.)

A serious poll--not a purely tendentious one--should consider all possibilities.

Some of us find it impossible to vote--even if the poll were not now closed--as no alternative is given for which we could vote.

I think that you have stumbled onto a truth here.

Well, sorta-kinda, anyway.

Democrats have believed--from "the get-go"--that Donald Trump is unworthy of the presidency; in fact, eighty-plus (I forget the exact number) even refused to attend the inauguration.

Ever since, they have chosen not merely to pick their fights--but to create a "Resistance" movement; which is petty, and is certainly not in the best interest of our country.

Actually, President Trump recently said that he did no such thing.

But you evidently believe otherwise.

I suppose that "believe" is the operative word here...

In many instances that may be true , but this poll does assume he will leave office. If You think he will not leave office calmly or under impeachment, then of course you do not want to participate in the poll unless you could drum up a hypothetical. which it sounds like you may not be able or perhaps willing to do. I hope you are prepared for a shock if your view turns out to be wrong just as I am preparing myself for shock if he stays in four years.
I will say this for what it's worth: If Trump does manage somehow to get past all this I would not place bets on him not getting reelected

Resistance is a meme originally created for bernie-crats
as usual mainstream media and dnc fuggers co opted it

two people
two resumes
two personal bios
I can judge who I think lies and who doesn't.
if you choose otherwise we disagree.
if you leave yourself open to the possibility it's probably because you require bolstering to trust your own judgement. I can respect that. In some matters I'm like that too. Just not in others.

The poll was closed too soon. I'm thinking he won't last the first four years. He'll quit if he doesn't get his way enough times.
