A steady plurality of Americans support impeaching Trump, and a steady majority support the impeachment inquiry

On a weekly basis since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the launch of a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump last month, Insider has polled Americans to gauge where the nation stands on proceedings to remove the president from office.

Each poll has asked a sample of more than 1,000 American adults, “Impeachment is the first step in the process of removing a president from office. Do you think the House of Representatives should impeach President Trump?

  • Week 1: 45.2% of those polled said they “support” or “strongly support” impeachment, and  opposition, and 29.8% said they “oppose” or “strongly oppose” impeachment.
  • Week 2: 47.1% of those polled said they “support” or “strongly support” impeachment, and 29.2% said they “oppose” or “strongly oppose” impeachment.
