44% Favor Impeachment, Removal From Office

Forty-four percent (44%) of voters nationwide believe that President Trump should be impeached and removed from office. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey finds that 41% disagree and oppose impeachment while 15% are not sure (see question wording and topline results).

Seventy-six percent (76%) of Democrats want the president removed from office along with 11% of Republicans and 40% of unaffiliated voters (see crosstabs).

The survey found that 45% believe there was collusion during the 2016 campaign and that 35% believe the president has committed treason in his relations with Russia. Still, half the nation’s voters, 49%, believe the president is as ethical as most politicians.

The national survey of 1,000 Registered Voters was conducted August 13-14, 2018 for ScottRasmussen.com by HarrisX, a leading research company specializing in online surveys (see Methodology and sample Demographics). It has a 3.1 percentage point Margin of Error  with a 95% level of confidence.

Just 23% are following news of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation very closely and only 20% expect that the president is likely to be impeached. Data released earlier showed that 33% of voters believe Clinton would have won without Russian interference.

The president’s Job Approval rating was at 46% for the last week of August
