Polls shifting in favor of impeaching Trump

Public opinion on impeaching President Trump is shifting in House Democrats’ favor as new polls show nearly half of the country supports their impeachment inquiry.

A recent NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist poll, for example, saw a 10-point jump in support for impeachment from April, ticking up to 49% of respondents approving with 46% disapproving. Meanwhile, a Politico -Morning Consult survey registered 36% support for impeachment, a 7-point surge in the weeks since details about Trump’s July phone call with the Ukrainian president were revealed.

The latest Hill-Harris X survey observed a 12-point rise in favor of impeachment, ticking up to 47% who back impeachment versus 42% who don’t. Additionally, a Harvard CAPS-Harris survey released this week found the American public split 50-50 on the issue.

“The poll shows that the public has serious concern over the Trump actions,” Mark Penn, the co-director of the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll, said. “These are generally higher numbers than during the Mueller investigation and most consider his actions inappropriate, even if not impeachable.
