still has a lot of support. only 10 republicans sided with the vote. and they are far away from kicking him out with less than a week remaining from my understanding. kicking out iirc require 2/3rd of the vote?

For the 25th Amendment to be invoked, Pence and the majority of Trump’s Cabinet would need to declare that Trump is unable to perform the duties of the presidency and remove him. Pence would take over, in that scenario.

Trump could subsequently declare that he is capable of resuming the job. If Pence and the majority of the Cabinet do not contest Trump’s determination, Trump regains power. If they dispute Trump’s declaration, the issue would then be decided by Congress, but Pence would continue to act as president until then.

A two-thirds majority of both Chambers would be needed to keep Trump sidelined. But the Democratic-controlled House could simply delay voting on the substantive dispute until Trump’s term ends, said Paul Campos, a professor of constitutional law at the University of Colorado.

The senate would take up his impeachment process after he leaves the office.
But yeah, he still has support of his fellow R's. They sought of support his tirade on Capitol hill. How things pan out when senate resumes is a matter to be seen.

One thing also needs to be seen... The reaction of people when he's finally impeached.. Govt needs to pull up its socks to ensure there is no violence.

Also, I heard some talk show mention that 45% of Republicans in a survey support the move to storm the Capitol - Even if round it down to 33% or 1/3rd as an average .. Thats a quarter of a million people who voted for him, want this.

When a fake info, repeated again and again and again to turn an abstract thing into a reality ... a hope on a leader who could rid them of all the ills, and when the leader starts to speak the minds of those insecure people, you practically start believing and doing what that leader asks you to do.
Trump reasoned use of violence to get back to power and his supporters believed it.
