Fifty-three percent of voters in six battleground states oppose impeaching President Donald Trump and removing him from office, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll.
Forty-three percent in the swing states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Arizona support impeachment and removal.
The survey results for those key states were released Monday. Here is how they break down:
- 92% of Republicans oppose impeachment and removal, compared to 5% who support it.
- 14% of Democrats oppose impeachment and removal, while 84% support it.
- 55% of independents are against impeachment and removal, compared to 39% who back it.
- 50% of all those surveyed support the impeachment inquiry of Trump, while 45% oppose it.
The poll, conducted Oct. 13-20, surveyed 1,934 registered voters in the battleground states. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.8%.
Trump touted the poll results in a Tuesday morning tweet in which he quoted Brian Kilmeade of "Fox & Friends." He wrote: "'I thought a very revealing poll was done by The New York Times. By about a 10 point margin, those in battleground states polled are against impeaching the President, and if Nancy Pelosi doesn't take note of that, maybe she is a third rate politician.' @kilmeade @foxandfriends"
