Most voters say there is little to no chance they will change their minds about the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s conduct, even as public hearings are set to kick off on Wednesday, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

A majority of voters, 62 percent, say there is no chance they could change their minds about impeachment, the poll shows. Another 19 percent say there’s only a small chance they change their minds.

Comparatively, only 2 percent say there is a strong chance they could change their mind, and another 8 percent say there is “some” chance they’ll change their mind.

As the hearings begin Wednesday morning in the House Intelligence Committee, the poll shows voters’ opinions about the impeachment investigation have changed little since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the opening of a formal inquiry back in September.

The new poll shows 50 percent of voters support the impeachment inquiry, compared with 41 percent who oppose it. In early October, 50 percent of voters supported the inquiry, while 44 percent opposed it.

As in previous POLITICO/Morning Consult polls, support for actually impeaching and removing Trump tracks closely with support for the inquiry. The new survey shows that 49 percent of voters support the House impeaching Trump, and 48 percent support the Senate removing him.

Democrats hope the public hearings make the details of the Ukraine scandal more digestible for voters at home. Asked in the POLITICO/Morning Consult poll whether they believe the Trump administration “withheld military aid from Ukraine in order to pressure the country’s government to investigate” Trump’s political rivals, more than two in 10 voters, 22 percent, say they have no opinion.

A plurality, 48 percent, say they definitely or probably believe the administration withheld military aid from Ukraine in order to pressure that country’s government, while 30 percent say they definitely or probably don’t believe that. Similarly, 49 percent say Trump “abused his power to influence the 2020 election,” while 34 percent say he “was acting within his power as president.”

Asked about watching the upcoming public hearings, just 27 percent say it’s “very likely” they will watch, while another 31 percent say it’s “somewhat likely.” But 33 percent say it’s not likely they’ll watch the impeachment hearings.

While Wednesday is dripping with drama on Capitol Hill, voters at home think it’s unlikely the proceedings will result in Trump’s impeachment and removal. Only 8 percent say it’s “very likely” the Senate will remove the president, and just 14 percent say it’s even “somewhat likely.” A combined 62 percent say it’s either “not too likely” or not likely at all that Trump will be removed from office.

But the poll also shows voters believe the Democratic-controlled House will impeach Trump, even if it doesn’t result in his removal.

“Our polling suggests voters are pessimistic that a House impeachment of President Trump will result in a Senate conviction,” said Tyler Sinclair, Morning Consult’s vice president. “Notably, 51 percent of voters — including 61 percent of Democrats, 48 percent of independents, and 42 percent of Republicans — believe the House of Representatives will impeach Trump but the Senate won’t remove him from office.”

The POLITICO/Morning Consult poll was conducted Nov. 8-10, surveying 1,993 registered voters. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.

Morning Consult is a nonpartisan media and technology company that provides data-driven research and insights on politics, policy and business strategy.
