A bare majority of voters in six key states are opposed to the impeachment and removal of President Donald Trump, according to a survey released Wednesday.
By a 52 percent to 44 percent margin, voters across the six states said they are opposed to the impeachment and removal of Trump, although an equal majority also support the House of Representatives’ inquiry into the president’s possible criminal behavior.
The voters surveyed lived in Arizona, North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Florida. The political science blog FiveThirtyEight lists all of these states as electoral battlegrounds.
A little more than 40 percent of respondents in the New York Times Upshot/Siena College poll said they support both the House inquiry and impeaching, and ultimately removing, Trump from office. That is lower than the national average of 48 percent.
