Delegates to the NAACP's annual convention voted unanimously Tuesday to support the impeachment of President Donald Trump, with the group's president saying Trump is "unfit to serve this country."

The announcement came from the organization's president, Derrick Johnson.  

"Trump's misconduct is unmistakable and has proven time and time again, that he is unfit to serve as the president of this country," Johnson tweeted.

While the vote is unlikely to have any legislative consequences, it represents a total rebuff of the president from the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization, Politico reported.

The organization's convention, held in Detroit, is a chance for its nearly half a million members to set their advocacy agenda for the next year. Top leaders within the NAACP, including Johnson, have long been vocal detractors of the president, the political news outlet reported.

A July 18 Economist/YouGov poll found 36% supported impeachment overall, while 45% opposed it.
