New Poll: 40% of Americans Want Trump Impeached and Removed from Office
Support for impeaching Donald Trump has increased significantly in the last six months, according to a survey released by the Public Religion Research Institute, PRRI.
Four in ten Americans (40%) now believe the president should be impeached and removed from office, a ten percent jump from the number of Americans who expressed the same sentiment in February.
53% of respondents s say the president should not be impeached but that is a significant drop compared to the 65% who expressed the same sentiment in February.
The shift in attitude is mostly coming from Democrats. 72% of Democrats say they now favor impeaching Trump compared to 53% who felt this way in February.
For Republicans, their feelings have remained largely the same. Only seven percent believe Trump should be impeached and removed from office. That is a jump of three percentage points compared to the 4% who said so in February. Majority of Republicans say they are against impeachment.
47% of women believe the president should be impeached while 45% feel otherwise.

On whether they think Trump has violated the U.S. constitution, nearly half agree that he has while a near identical number disagrees.
According to PRRI, more than eight in ten (85%) Republicans reject the notion that Trump violated the Constitution, while nearly eight in ten (78%) Democrats say he has.
Young adults are far more likely than seniors to believe Trump violated the Constitution. Nearly six in ten (59%) young adults, compared to about four in ten (41%) seniors, believe Trump’s actions violated the Constitution.
