Support for impeachment jumps in new poll — but it's still far below a majority

There is just as much support as there is opposition now

A new poll released Thursday shows an increase in the support of impeachment among Americans, but it's well short of a majority.

The Morning Consult poll found that just as many Americans support impeachment as those oppose it, at 43 percent.

However, the support of impeachment jumped by 7 points from 36 percent, while the opposition to impeachment fell 6 points from 49 percent.

The survey was conducted between September 24 and 26, during the time when Democrats decided to begin an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

Other polling has showed little support for the historic and controversial action against the president. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had resisted calls from the progressive wing of her party to impeach, but she relented after a report of allegedly improper demands made to the Ukrainian president.

Some moderate and establishment Democrats have warned that impeachment is not popular among voters, and cautioned that the action would threaten to overtake their efforts to hold on to seats in swing districts.

The president has claimed that impeachment threats have only made him more popular.
