In 18 Hours, Polls Shift on Impeachment
Preliminary polling shows Democrats may be winning the narrative (so far) on whether or not President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses.

New polls show nearly half the country supports the House's impeachment inquiry (Washington Examiner).

A recent NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist poll, for example, saw a 10-point jump in support for impeachment from April, ticking up to 49% of respondents approving with 46% disapproving. Meanwhile, a Politico -Morning Consult survey registered 36% support for impeachment, a 7-point surge in the weeks since details about Trump's July phone call with the Ukrainian president were revealed.

The latest Hill-Harris X survey observed a 12-point rise in favor of impeachment, ticking up to 47% who back impeachment versus 42% who don't. Additionally, a Harvard CAPS-Harris survey released this week found the American public split 50-50 on the issue.

“The poll shows that the public has serious concern over the Trump actions,” Mark Penn, the co-director of the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll, said. “These are generally higher numbers than during the Mueller investigation and most consider his actions inappropriate, even if not impeachable."

However, some polling among independents and suburban voters shows less support for impeachment, as the NPR survey found that only 44% of independents are in favor while suburban voters are evenly divided.
