Gallup found Trump enjoys support against removal from 93% of Republicans.

Per Gallup Forty-six percent of Americans say they would like their senators to vote to convict Trump and remove him from office, while 51% want their senators to vote against conviction so Trump will remain as president.

Gallup also found Trump hitting approval numbers near the best of his Presidency, finding “Trump’s recent job approval ratings — though below the historical average 53% for post-World War II presidents — are among the highest of his presidency. His personal best is 46%, while he has averaged 40% job approval for his entire term.”
