Poll: 48 percent of Americans want President Trump impeached

A new poll reveals a significant percentage of voters express apathy for keeping President Donald Trump in office after a slew of new controversies.

According to a new poll out of the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling, 48 percent of Americans say they support impeaching President Trump, while 41 percent oppose the idea. Public Policy Polling notes this is the first time more voters supported impeaching Trump than not.

Additionally, only 43 percent of voters think the president is going to finish his full term -- while 45 percent think he will not, and 12 percent are unsure.

Democratic Rep. Al Green joined the likes of Congressman Maxine Waters on Monday in calling for President Trump's impeachment, saying "no one is above the law."

The Texas congressman issued a statement announcing his support of impeachment on Monday, in which he claims America's 45th president has obstructed a lawful investigation of Trump's campaign ties to Russian influence in the 2016 election.

"President Trump is not above the law," Green says. "He has committed an impeachable act and must be charged. To do otherwise would cause some Americans to lose respect for, and obedience to, our societal norms."

PPP also surveyed voters on their thoughts on Trump in comparison to his White House predecessor, President Barack Obama, and Democratic presidential election opponent, Hillary Clinton.

"By an 8 point margin, 49/41, they say they wish Hillary Clinton was President instead of Trump," the poll findings state. "And by a 16 point margin, 55/39, they say they wish Barack Obama was still in office instead of Trump."

Trump's approval rating continues to dip, and recent NBC/WSJ poll shows just 29 percent of Americans approve of the president's firing of James Comey, with 39 percent disapproving. Another 32 percent of respondents say they don't have enough to say on the incident.
