A new poll taken by CNN shows support for Trump being impeached and removed from office staying steady at 50%.
This poll contradicts other polling from Emerson showing decreasing support in impeachment.
CNN found 50% support removal of Trump, vs. 43% who do not.
This number is the same as October, and according to the CNN poll has grown since March.
After five days of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, public opinion over whether the President ought to be impeached and removed from office remains exactly the same as it was in October, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS.
Half of Americans say Trump should be impeached and removed from office, 43% say he should not. Neither figure has changed since October, with support for impeachment remaining at its highest level thus far in CNN polling. The partisan divide over the President persists as well, with roughly 80 points between Democratic support for Trump’s removal and Republican support for it.
Independents are closely divided on the question, 47% in favor, 45% opposed. Opinions on both sides are deeply held, with about 9 in 10 on either side saying they feel strongly in favor or against it.
