The survey, which was released on Thursday, found that 54 percent of Americans support the impeachment inquiry, while 44 percent oppose it. The figure represents a four-point increase in support from a similar survey in September.

Majority of Americans Back Trump Impeachment Probe, WSJ/NBC Poll Says

  Majority of Americans Back Trump Impeachment Probe, WSJ/NBC Poll Says A majority of Americans say President Trump’s actions regarding Ukraine are a serious matter and merit an impeachment inquiry by Congress, but a plurality says that, based on what they know now, the president shouldn’t be removed from office, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds. The survey suggests that the public is closely following House Democrats’ investigation but isn’t convinced that Mr. Trump should lose his job over accusations that he misused his office by pressuring Ukraine to investigate a political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. Mr. Trump says he has done nothing wrong.

That inquiry could lead to impeachment in the House of Representatives. In a survey conducted as part of YouGov’s Daily Agenda poll, 55 percent of Americans said they would support impeachment if it’s confirmed that Trump did suspend aid in order to convince Ukrainian officials to investigate.

Nine percent of respondents who voiced opposition to the inquiry last month now approve the House's impeachment inquiry, according to Pew. Democrats make up a significant chunk of the respondents that shifted their opinion in favor of an impeachment inquiry.

Thirty-five percent of those respondents identified as Democrats, while 26 percent identified as lean Democratic. Twenty-percent classified themselves as Republican-leaning, with 10 percent identifying as Republicans.

Just four percent of respondents who favored an impeachment inquiry last month now oppose it. Meanwhile, 85 percent respondents' opinions on the impeachment inquiry have remained the same since September.

The findings come as the Trump administration faces mounting scrutiny over the president's interactions with Ukraine, which are now at the heart of a formal impeachment inquiry. The inquiry largely stems from a whistleblower complaint filed within the intelligence community that accuses the White House of a broad effort to pressure a foreign nation into investigating 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Well, if you’re a Democrat and among a majority in your party who wanted to see impeachment, you’re excited about the prospect, and perhaps relieved that the process seems to be headed toward an actual vote in the House. But for the more progressive wing of the Democratic Party, a mere inquiry doesn't go far enough.

Public opinion appears to be split as to whether Republicans and Democrats will be fair during the inquiry. The Pew survey found that just 43 percent of Americans believe the GOP will be somewhat or very fair and reasonable during the inquiry. Just 47 percent of respondents said the same of Democrats.
