60% of Americans surveyed say President Trump doesn't deserve to be re-elected, a CNN poll published on Tuesday afternoon finds.

Between the lines: CNN notes that the poll, conducted by SSRS, indicates that deep partisan polarization and negative perceptions of Trump and his administration have remained largely unchanged, with previous polls regularly returning approval ratings this year of around 40%. But Trump's predecessors faced similar dire approval ratings in their first terms.

By the numbers: 55% of respondents to a 2011 Gallup poll said Democratic President Obama didn't deserve re-election.

This is the first poll to show a majority in support of an impeachment inquiry, and it's also the first to poll Americans in the days after the release of the whistleblower complaint about Trump and Ukraine.

Public opinion on impeaching and removing President Trump from office is continuing to shift in Democrats' favor, according to new Quinnipiac and CNN/SSRS polls released Monday.

The big picture: The polls continue the trend of increased favorability for impeachment in the days since Speaker Nancy Pelosi launched a formal impeachment inquiry into allegations that Trump pushed Ukrainian officials to investigate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, over unsubstantiated corruption allegations.
