The latest survey from the Pew Research Center indicates that a majority of American adults support the House’s decision to begin an impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump, with support even more pronounced among younger age groups.
The data, released Thursday, showed that 54 percent of American adults approve of the House’s decision to launch an investigation into the president. Forty-four percent disapproved of the move.
The figure represents a 4-point increase in support from a similar survey in September.
An even higher number—58 percent—said the president had definitely or probably done things that are “grounds for impeachment.”
The study surveyed 3,487 adults between October 1 and 13.
Young Americans were more likely to support the impeachment investigation. Sixty-three percent of those aged 18 to 29 supported the probe, 60 percent of those aged 30 to 49, and 50 percent of those aged 50 to 64. Only the oldest age group—65 years old or more—expressed majority opposition to the impeachment investigation, with just 43 percent in favor.
