LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new poll released by Fox News found that a little more than half of American voters want President Trump to be impeached and removed from office.
According to the report from Fox News, the poll found that a new high of 51% want Trump impeached and removed from office, another 4% want him impeached but not removed, and 40% oppose impeachment altogether.
In July, 42% favored impeachment and removal, while 5% said impeach but don't remove him, and 45% opposed impeachment.
Since July, support for impeachment increased among voters of all stripes: up 11 points among Democrats, five points among Republicans and three percent among independents. Support also went up among some of Trump's key constituencies, including white evangelical Christians (+five points), white men without a college degree (+eight points) and rural whites (+10 points.)
But the news is not good for Congress either, according to the poll results. The poll found that, overall, voters remain dissatisfied with the job Congress is doing, with 21% of respondents approving and 63% disapproving. In May, it was 21-66%.
"Conducted October 6-8, 2019 under the joint direction of Beacon Research (D) and Shaw & Company (R), this Fox News Poll includes interviews with 1,003 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide who spoke with live interviewers on both landlines and cellphones," the Fox News report states.
