A majority of Americans want the Senate to convict and remove President Donald Trump from office, according to a new poll conducted by CNN.
According to the cable news network, fifty-one percent of respondents to the poll want the Senate to convict Trump on the impeachment charges brought by the House, which would lead to his immediate expulsion from office. Meanwhile, 45 percent of respondents said they don’t want to see the president removed.
The poll was conducted from Jan. 16-19 and released Monday, on the eve of the Senate impeachment trial, which gets underway Tuesday, though senators were sworn in last week.
CNN’s study was conducted by phone among a sample of 1,156 respondents. The margin of error is +/- 3.4 percentage points.
