Support for the House impeachment inquiry into President Trump is on the rise.

A slim majority of Americans now approve of the Democratic House-led impeachment inquiry into President Trump, a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds. Fifty-two percent say they approve of the inquiry, while 43% disapprove. That’s a slight increase in support from two weeks ago, when 49% approved and 46% disapproved. The numbers are in line with other polls that have been released this week also showing majority support or an increase in support for the inquiry.

The uptick in support in the NPR poll comes mostly from a swing among independents. In late September, more independents disapproved of the inquiry than approved, by a 50-44% margin. Now, in a reversal, more independents approve of the inquiry than disapprove, by a 54-41% margin, a net change of 19 points. Loading…

On the questions of whether Trump should be impeached or removed from office, Americans are split — 49-47% in favor of impeachment and 48-48% on whether the Senate should vote to remove him. While Americans’ support is growing for the impeachment inquiry and a slim majority (51%) thinks the inquiry is a very serious matter and not “just politics,” they are unconvinced impeachment is the right way to decide the future of Trump’s presidency. By a 58-37% margin, Americans think his future should be decided at the ballot box rather than by the impeachment process.

“There’s a danger point in this for the White House, but also some danger points for Democrats in Congress, because people are not convinced this is the way to go,” said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, which conducts the poll. The survey was conducted from Oct. 3 through Tuesday, Oct. 8. The previous poll from Marist dealing with impeachment was conducted Sept. 25, after the White House released its record of the phone call between Trump and President Volodymyr Zelenskiy of Ukraine, but before the whistleblower complaint was made public. Republicans firmly against, but Americans don’t approve of Trump’s behavior Republicans are dug in against the impeachment inquiry with nearly 9 in 10 disapproving of it. Two-thirds also say they would be less likely to vote for their representative from Congress if that lawmaker votes to impeach Trump. Despite the lack of enthusiasm for impeachment, Americans clearly don’t approve of Trump’s recent behavior, don’t think he shares Americans’ moral values and are pessimistic about the direction the country is headed.

For example, 68% say it’s not acceptable to ask a foreign country’s leader for help investigating a potential political opponent; that includes 40% of Republicans. And 61% say Trump does not share the moral values most Americans try to live by; and just 35% say the country is headed in the right direction. Loading…

The moral values question is similar to how Americans viewed former President Bill Clinton in the year he was impeached — 62% said Clinton did not share Americans’ moral values
