61% of Americans said they think the allegations of sexual misconduct against President Trump are "mostly true," according to a CNN poll released Friday. And 63% of respondents said they think the accusations warrant a congressional investigation.

Why it matters: In the wake of the #MeToo movement, three of the 16 women who have publicly accused Trump of sexual misconduct called on Congress earlier this month to investigate the allegations. Several Democrats have also called for the president's resignation. Meanwhile, the White House has maintained that all of the president's accusers are lying.
