A new study reveals impeachment is the top priority for Republican voters and the second choice for Democrats, according to The New York Times.

The information comes from a UCLA/Democracy Fund project started in July. The project, called Nationscape, has surveyed more than 6,000 people every week.

Those who take the survey see randomly selected collections of up to four policy positions. People are then asked to select which collection of policy outcomes they prefer. Those taking the survey are asked to do this 10 times.

Republicans are about 45 percentage points more likely to choose a basket of policies when it includes their position on impeachment, the Times reported. Eighty-eight percent of Republicans with a position on impeachment do not favor it, the newspaper noted.

The issue tops every other one for Republicans.

Democrats are more focused on family separation at the southern border. The Times noted that 92% of this group with an opinion on the issue are opposed to it.

Coming in second for Democrats is the issue of impeachment. Eighty-six percent of Democrats with an opinion on the issue support it.
