Support For Trump’s Impeachment Jumps 21 Percent Among Republicans In New Poll

Support for the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump has risen among all political groups spectrum since a July poll, with Democrat support rising 25 points from July, Republican support rising 21 points and independent support rising 20 points, according to a newly released Washington Post-Schar School survey.

The poll found that a majority of Americans support the impeachment inquiry into President Trump while almost half back his removal from office.

The poll, released early Tuesday, found that 58 percent say the House was correct to launch the inquiry, compared to 38 percent who disagreed.

Forty-nine percent said lawmakers in the lower chamber should impeach Trump and call for his removal from office. Just 6 percent support the inquiry, but not Trump’s removal from office, according to the survey.

Pollsters found a partisan divide on the issue, with more than 8 in 10 Democrats endorsing the inquiry and about 7 in 10 Republicans saying they do not support the inquiry.

Nearly 8 in 10 Democrats favor a vote to recommend that Trump be removed from office, while almost one-fifth of Republicans agreed.

More than half of independent voters – 57 percent – said they support the impeachment inquiry and 49 percent said the House should vote to remove Trump from office.

The poll also found that support for the impeachment inquiry and Trump’s removal from office has risen among all three partisan groups since a July poll, with Democrat support rising 25 points from July, Republican support rising 21 points and independent support rising 20 points.

The House launched an impeachment inquiry after a whistleblower filed a complaint alleging Trump solicited foreign interference in the 2020 election.

The majority of Americans in the new poll, 62 percent, said the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which Trump asked the foreign leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, was inappropriate, compared to 32 percent who felt it was not.

Trump has denied any wrongdoing.

The survey of 1,007 adults was conducted between Oct. 1-6. It has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
