A new national poll reveals a stronger appetite among Americans for impeaching and removing president Donald Trump despite a split along party lines.

That stronger appetite was revealed in a poll from Reuters/Ipsos. Conducted Monday and Tuesday, this new poll found 47% of adults in the United States say Trump “should be impeached.” On the other hand, 40% said he shouldn't. Combined with Reuters/Ipsos polling over the past several weeks, this latest survey confirms the number of Americans that want to impeach Trump increasingly outnumbers those that don't.

The poll was conducted after the public impeachment testimonies, which began November 13, ended on November 21. Blistering testimonies by witnesses from the State Department and the U.S. military pointed to Trump pressuring Ukraine into digging-up dirt on former vice president Joe Biden and his son in exchange for Trump releasing $391 million in military aid for that coutry.

As in previous polls, this latest one showed an unwavering, partisan sentiment among Democrats and Republicans. Eight in 10 Democrats want Trump impeached while eight in 10 Republicans oppose impeachment. It also reveals seven in 10 Republicans believe the House inquiry wasn't conducted fairly.

Oddly, four in 10 Republicans agreed a president that uses his powers for financial gain should face an impeachment inquiry. Three in 10 said impechment is justified for a president that obstructs justice or harms U.S. interests abroad.

Only two in 10, however, said an inquiry is justified for a president that uses his powers for unfair political advantage over an opponent. This is what Trump is accused of doing in the Ukraine scandal.

Just before the hearings began, another Reuters/Ipsos poll found “net support” for impeachment stood at three percentage points. This number increased to 4 points after the first week of hearings, and to five points at the start of the second week of hearings. The latest poll shows that net support for impeachment is now at seven points. Net support is the difference between the number that support impeachment and the number that oppose it.

Democrats accuse Trump of abusing his power by withholding the military aid to put pressure on Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 U.S. presidential election by investigating Trump's political opponents.

Trump continues to deny any wrongdoing. He's labeled the impeachment inquiry a hoax or effort by Democrats to overturn the result of the 2016 election.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online throughout the U.S. It involved 1,118 adults, consisting of 528 Democrats, 394 Republicans and 111 independents. It has a credibility interval (which is a measure of precision) of three percentage points.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted from Oct. 18 to 22 revealed support for impeaching Trump surged among political independents and increased by three percentage points overall since last week. Overall, 46% of Americans say they support impeachment and 40% say they oppose it.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll shows support for impeachment remained steady among Republicans and Democrats but jumped among independent. It shows 45% of independents saying they support impeachment. On the other hand, 32% said they oppose it, which is the strongest level of support in more than a year.
