More independents oppose the impeachment proceedings against President Trump than support them, according to a recent poll conducted after the beginning of public testimony.
A Morning Consult- Politico poll released Tuesday said 47% of independents "oppose the current impeachment inquiry," while only 40% of independents support impeachment. The poll represents a 10% drop in support among independents for the impeachment.
Overall, opposition increased to 45%, while support for impeachment dropped from 50% to 48%. The decrease in support follows the start of the second week of testimony by impeachment witnesses.
