More than half of voters want President Donald Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

According to the poll, a new high of 51 percent want Trump impeached and removed from office, four percent want him impeached and not removed, and 40 percent do not want him impeached. Less than half of voters were in favor of impeachment and removal in July, clocking in at 42 percent.

Support for the impeachment of Trump went up among all political parties. Democrats saw the biggest increase, going up 11 points. Support among Republicans went up five points and among independents three points.

Notably, support for impeachment also went up among some of Trump’s key constituencies, including white evangelical Christians (+5 points), white men without a college degree (+8), and rural whites (+10).

Voters in swing counties — where Hillary Clinton and Trump were within 10 points in the 2016 presidential election — saw support for impeachment increase to 52 percent, up from 42 percent in July.
