Just 36 percent of registered voters support impeaching President Donald Trump, a 7-point percent decrease from December stemming from a drop in Democrats who have changed their mind, a CNN poll finds.

In December, 80 percent of Democrats said they were in favor of impeachment, but that number now stands at 68 percent. The poll follows a statement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., that impeachment would be "so divisive to the country."

Additionally, the poll found:

  • 50 percent of college graduates backed impeachment in December compared to 35 percent now.

  • Support for impeachment fell drastically since last June, when 47 percent of voters said they backed such an effort.

  • About 40 percent say Democrats are overreaching in investigating Trump, while 34 percent say they are doing the right amount, and 22 percent say they are doing too little.

  • 53 percent say most Americans think Trump is not doing enough to cooperate with investigations by Democrats, while 32 percent say it is the right amount.

  • 67 percent say Trump should release his tax returns publicly.

  • 48 percent approve of the job special counsel Robert Mueller is doing compared to 37 percent who say they disapprove.

The CNN poll was conducted by SSRS March 14-17 among a random national sample of 1,003 adults.
