According to a new poll, less than half of Americans surveyed support impeachment against President Donald Trump, but the percentage has risen slightly in the last month.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll says that 45 percent of Americans support impeachment, while 42 percent said that the president should not be impeached. Another 13 percent were undecided on the question.

This is a slight increase in the support for impeachment since April, when the same poll saw 40 percent support from Americans surveyed.

However, Americans did not think much of the conduct of members of Congress in relation to the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report, according to the same poll.

Only 32 percent of Americans, less than a third, said lawmakers in Congress treated the results of the report fairly.

Nearly half of Americans, 47 percent, said that they did not treat the results of the investigation fairly.

The poll said that his favorability rating was at 39 percent.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) saw a tide of backlash from Democrats when she appeared to be reticent to support impeachment after the Mueller report was released. She has since changed her tone to imply that she might support the divisive action.
