It's been six months since President Trump took office, and America is already considering impeachment prospects. From a USA Today and iMediaEthics survey of 1,330 Americans over three days last week:

  • 42% of Americans wants Congress to impeach Donald Trump, while 42% do not.
  • There are as many Americans who would be upset if Trump is impeached as those who would be upset if he was not impeached (34%).
  • Only 27% of those surveyed thought that Trump would serve a full term.

Why it matters: While President Trump is certainly not the first president to face a growing population of Americans who want him impeached, it's uncommon to be this unpopular this early in a presidency.
