Poll: Majority of voters want Trump impeached or censured

Nearly 6 in 10 American voters believe President Trump should either be impeached and removed from office or formally censured according to a poll, reports The Hill.

In the wake of ongoing investigations surrounding Trump, a new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll asked nearly 1,500 registered voters what actions if any should be taken against the commander in chief.

While a majority says some action should be taken against the president, there is a divide on how far that action should go. Thirty-nine percent of those polled said Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 20 percent believe that the president should be formally censured by Congress.

Regarding the information provided by Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen alleging that Trump directed hush money be paid to two women to hide affairs, respondents were split on whether or not that was grounds for impeachment.

Fifty-one percent were against impeaching President Trump on these allegations. With the Russia investigation by Robert Mueller winding down, 59 percent said that the probe is hurting the country.

However, 32 percent polled said the investigation should continue indefinitely, while 31 percent believe it should end immediately.
