A majority of Americans oppose impeachment against Trump

A majority of Americans say they oppose calls for Congress to launch impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the president sought to interfere with the probe, Washington Post and ABC News reported.

37% of Americans favor starting the process that could lead to impeachment, a slight dip over the past month, while 56% say they oppose the idea, about the same as a month ago.

Roughly 6 in 10 Democrats say they support the initiation of such an investigation in the US House of Representatives, with 53% saying they hold that view strongly. Meanwhile, nearly 9 in 10 Republicans oppose impeachment, with 78% strongly opposed.
