Pew Research Center is out with a poll showing 54% approve of the US House impeachment proceedings while 44% disapprove. In early September when less was known about Trump’s dealings, the public split about 50/50 on the question in the same poll.
But about one-in-ten adults (9%) who had opposed the House opening impeachment proceedings last month now approve of the decision to conduct an impeachment inquiry, based on an analysis that tracks change in opinion among the same survey respondents over time.
Among Democrats, 93% said that Trump has definitely or probably committed impeachable acts, (70% say he definitely has). There seems to be some weakening among Republicans supporting Trump, and this may escalate we hear more.
– a smaller majority of Republicans (80%) say he has not. Fewer than half of Republicans (46%) say Trump has definitely not done things that are grounds for impeachment.
The Pew Poll was taken 1-13 of October and surveyed 3,487 adults.
