New poll finds that 51% of Americans think Trump should be impeached and removed from office


A majority of Americans think that the Senate should vote to convict President Donald Trump and remove him from office, a poll by CNN found on the eve of impeachment proceedings beginning in the Senate. 

The poll, conducted by SSRS for CNN, asked a random national sample of 1,156 adults reached on landlines or cellphones by a live interviewer.  

The poll found that a majority of Americans (51%) wanted the Senate to convict President Trump and remove him from office. That's compared to the 45% who said the Senate should vote against conviction and removal. 

People generally seemed to agree (69%) that the trial should feature new witnesses who did not testify in the House impeachment inquiry. This number was lower among Republicans, with only 48% agreeing, will 44% did not want new witnesses to testify.
