Fifty-two percent of Americans said they supported the House impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump — and 49% said he should be impeached, according to new poll results released Thursday.

In addition, 48% of those responding in the new poll from PBS NewsHour, NPR and Marist College said that President Trump should be removed from office if he is impeached by the House.

The poll sampled 1,123 adults between last Thursday and Tuesday.

Here are other results:

It is acceptable or unacceptable for a president to ask a foreign leader to investigate political opponents?

  • Unacceptable: 68%.
  • Acceptable: 26%.

Should the identity of the whistleblower in the Ukrainian case be protected?

  • Yes: 59%.
  • No: 38%.

Has Trump's behavior with Ukraine strengthened or weakened national security?

  • Weakened: 47%.
  • Strengthened: 43%.

The new poll is similar to others released this week.

A Washington Post-Schar School poll released Monday found that 58% of Americans agreed with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision to launch the inquiry.

On Wednesday, a Fox News survey found 51% of registered voters said Trump should be impeached and removed from office.

The PBS NewsHour-NPR-Marist poll has a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.
