Poll: Voters show growing appetite for Trump impeachment

In the new poll, 43 percent of registered voters said Congress should begin impeachment proceedings to remove Trump from office, compared with 45 percent who said it shouldn’t. Support for beginning impeachment proceedings was up 5 points from the previous poll, when fewer than 2 in 5 (38 percent) said Congress should get the ball rolling.

Support for removing Trump from office was up among all partisan leanings, though the biggest swing came from independents: 38 percent backed impeachment in the new poll, compared with 33 percent in the previous survey. Democrats (from 68 percent to 71 percent) and Republicans (from 12 percent to 15 percent) were also slightly more likely to back impeachment proceedings, which are highly unlikely as long as Republicans maintain their control of both chambers of Congress.
