Poll: 45% of Americans say Trump should be impeached

Forty-five percent of Americans say Trump should be impeached, while 53 percent say he should not be, according to a new Gallup poll released Wednesday.

The results are divided along partisan lines, with 7 percent of Republicans, 46 percent of independents and 81 percent of Democrats saying Trump should be impeached.

Despite overall opposition to impeachment, Gallup notes that support for Trump’s ouster exceeds that for former President Clinton’s throughout the Monica Lewinsky scandal and for former President Nixon’s at the beginning of the Watergate controversy.

Trump’s overall favorability rating sits at 41 percent in the poll, staying within the low-to-mid-40s range it has been in for most of his presidency.
