A new poll shows that a surprising percentage of Americans believe the Mueller report has evidence of obstruction of justice, despite the denials from President Donald Trump.

A narrow majority of 53 percent of Americans who knew about the release of the report believe there is evidence of obstruction of justice by Trump, the poll from Harris X/The Hill shows.

Another 47 percent said they didn't believe special counsel Mueller reported evidence of obstruction of justice.

The report has been at the center of a fiery debate since it was released in a redacted form. The president and his allies say it exonerates him completely, while the Democrats and other critics of the president say it leaves the issue of impeachment up to the Congress.

However, when the question is asked of all respondents, not just those who had heard of the release of the Mueller report, they are evenly divided.

Half of all respondents believe there is evidence of obstruction while another half believe there is not evidence of obstruction.

While a few Democrats have called for the president to be impeached, the Democratic establishment and leadership have cautioned against acting too rashly.

Here's the latest on charges of obstruction:
