74% of Democrats Believe President Trump Should Be Impeached and Removed From Office

Seventy-four percent (74%) of Democratic voters believe President Trump should be impeached and removed from office. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that just 14% of Democrats disagree.

Not surprisingly, Republicans have an entirely different view. Just 9% believe the president should be impeached while 81% reject the idea.

Among Independents, 39% want the president impeached and removed from office while 41% do not.

Put it all together and 43% of voters favor impeachment, 43% are opposed, and 14% are not sure (see question wording and crosstab results). The figures are essentially unchanged since August.

The national survey of 1,000 Registered Voters was conducted October 18-19, 2018 by ScottRasmussen.com and 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.

The survey found the 44% believe candidate Trump colluded with the Russians during the campaign. Thirty-six percent (36%) believe he is guilty of treason. Other recent data show that 34% believe Hillary Clinton would have won the 2016 election without Russian interference.

Twenty-one percent (21%) of voters consider themselves part of the resistance to President Trump.
