When asked which statement best reflected their view of the president’s conduct after the first round of open testimony, 70% said “Trump’s actions were wrong.” Fifty-one percent said his acts were wrong and deserved impeachment in the House and convicted in the Senate. Thirteen percent said what he did was wrong but not impeachable. And 6% thought his actions were wrong and that he should be impeached but not removed from office by the Senate.
Twenty-one percent of those surveyed said they formed their opinion on Trump’s behavior after last week’s hearings, and 27% said they decided how they felt between the time news of the Ukraine allegations broke and the hearings began. Another 19% said they decided when news of the story was first reported.
Nearly a third said they had made up their mind about Trump and impeachment even before the first news reports about Ukraine in September.
