That’s not research, that’s an opinion. Populism is inherently wrong — the reason we have elections and representatives is because people can’t be experts in all political matters, because most of them have better things to be doing. Also, leaving an issue such as impeachment to the people, who don’t have nearly enough time to know enough about it, is incredibly dangerous and runs counter to the constitution. It’s a solemn duty, not one to be farmed out to the people in order to look democratic and try to keep yourself in power. The Trump administration is also one of the most pernicious and dangerous in quite some time — wanting to work in it is contemptible.
