A new poll from ABC News shows how many Americans believe that President Donald Trump should be impeached, and the numbers should be a warning for Democrats.

Only 37 percent of Americans polled said that they thought the president should be impeached.

That is the lowest number saying Trump should be impeached in this poll's history.

That percentage has fallen from before the Mueller report was released, when 41 percent said he should be impeached. And it's much lower than the 49 percent who said he should be impeached in August 2018.

More than half of Americans polled, 56 percent, said impeachment proceedings should not begin against the president.

Surprisingly, when asked if they believed Trump obstructed justice, many more said he did than those that said he should be impeached. Nearly half of Americans, 47 percent, said he had obstructed justice, while 41 percent said he didn't obstruct justice.

Only 31 percent agreed with the president that the Mueller report exonerated him, while 53 percent said the report did not clear him of all charges.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) initially said that it was not worth the trouble to impeach the president, but after pressure from the progressive wing of the party, she relented and said the facts may force Democrats to impeach.

Here's the report from ABC News on their poll:
