Gallup poll shows 52 percent of Americans support removal of Donald Trump after impeachment

A shock Gallup poll has shown 52% of Americans support the removal of Donald Trump as president after impeachment.

It is the first time that the respected pollsters have registered a majority of Americans supporting the removal of a president since August 1974, when 58% supported the removal of Richard Nixon.

Nixon stepped down as president four days later when it became clear he would be impeached by the House of Representatives. 

In contrast, the Gallup data shows support for the removal of Bill Clinton as president peaked at just 35% in September 1998 in the months leading up to his impeachment trial.

Gallup found that 52% of national adults support the impeachment and removal of Trump as president in the poll this month – up from 45% in June.

On the other side, 46% are opposed to his impeachment and removal – down from 53% in June. 

But support for impeaching and removing Trump remains split along party lines.

While 89% of Democrats, and 55% of independents support his removal, just 6% of Republicans agree.

The news came just a week after Fox News published a poll finding that 51% of Americans agreed that Trump should be impeached and removed from office, a nine-point jump from the most recent survey on July 19. 

 The president was furious at the Fox poll, tweeting: ‘From the day I announced I was running for President, I have NEVER had a good @FoxNews Poll. Whoever their Pollster is, they suck. But @FoxNews is also much different than it used to be in the good old days.’
