About 20% of Republicans now "strongly" or "somewhat" approve of the Senate taking action to convict President Donald Trump in an impeachment trial, according to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll.

The number marks an increase from the 14% who had said in an earlier poll this month that they would approve of a Senate conviction.

Here are highlights from the new poll:

  • 86% of Democrats say they "strongly" or "somewhat" approve of a potential Senate conviction.
  • 50% of independents say they "strongly" or "somewhat" approve of a Senate conviction.
  • 55% of all those polled said they either "strongly" or "somewhat" approve of the Senate convicting Trump. 37% said they "strongly or "somewhat" disapprove of a conviction, while 7% said they had no opinion.

The poll, conducted Jan. 15-17, surveyed 1,993 registered voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
