The public's view of impeachment remains statistically unchanged following all the hours of congressional testimony on the subject, with 48% opposing it and 47% supporting it, according to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll published Monday.

In November, when the question was last asked, 47% backed impeachment and 46% were against it.

"It's like the hearings have never happened," Marist Institute for Public Opinion director Lee Miringoff said. "The arguments have only served to reinforce existing views, and everyone is rooting for their side."

Miringoff added, "There's not a lot of persuasion going on. This is definitely lining up to be all about the base. You can do all the message-testing and convincing and persuasion [efforts], but it's going to be about targeting your group and making sure they show."

Other results from the survey included:

  • Among independents, 46% support impeachment, while 49% oppose it.
  • President Donald Trump's approval rating was essentially unchanged at 42%.
  • 51% said the ideas being offered by Trump would generally move the United States in the wrong direction.
  • 45% said the ideas Democrats are offering would move the country in the wrong direction, and 44% said they would move it in the right one.

The survey of 1,744 adults was conducted between Dec. 9-11 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
