Forty percent of registered voters support impeaching Donald Trump, according to a poll released Thursday from Public Policy Polling (PPP).
Nearly half of voters, 48%, are opposed to impeaching Trump while 12% remain unsure, according to the poll.
Pollsters also found that a majority of voters, 52%, would prefer former President Barack Obama in his old role rather than Trump, while 43% prefer Trump and 5 percent are uncertain.
PPP’s president Dean Debnam said in a statement:
“Usually a newly elected president is at the peak of their popularity and enjoying their honeymoon after taking office right now. But Donald Trump’s making history once again with a sizable share of voters already wanting to impeach him, and a majority of voters wishing they could have Barack Obama back.”
PPP polling found that 49% of voters disapprove of Trump’s performance since his inauguration Jan. 20, while 47% approve.
Overall impressions of Trump remain negative, according to the poll, with 52% viewing him unfavorably to 45% viewing him favorably.
