Public support for impeaching and removing President Donald Trump from office slipped 5 points and now stands at less than 50% in the latest CNN poll.
Key figures in the poll results released Monday evening:
- 45% of U.S. adults are in favor of having Trump impeached and removed, down from 50% in a November poll.
- 47% are against impeachment and removal, up from 43% last month.
- 77% of Democrats are for impeachment and removal, a 13-point drop from the November survey.
- 9% of those surveyed did not have an opinion on the matter, a jump of 3 points from the previous poll.
- 51% said Trump tried to use his office for political gain via his dealings with Ukraine, a decrease of 2% from last month.
- 43% approve of the job Trump is doing as president and 53% disapprove.
The House Judiciary Committee voted last week to advance two articles of impeachment to a full chamber vote, which is expected to occur this week. A Senate trial will follow, likely in January.
The CNN survey was conducted Dec. 12-15 and sampled 1,005 U.S. adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
