TopStory - Most US voters oppose Trump's impeachment

GOP Tax Plan  Cropped

The new numbers from the eight polls mark the president's lowest approval rating in six months.

The Quinnipiac University national poll showed that 56 percent of voters - including 61 percent of independents - said they are not on board with the impeachment from liberal Democrats.

As Newsweek reports, when asked if they believed the 45th president is intelligent, just 51 percent answered that they do, while 42 percent answered that they did not.

But the survey showed that voters - 72 to 18 percent - disapprove of the job Congress is doing, and by a 58 to 27 percent margin believe the legislative body should be more of a check on the president. Approval for the Russian investigation lead by Special Counsel Robert Mueller hit an all-time high, with 63% of Americans supporting Mueller's probe, according to the poll taken end of August.

Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll, said in a statement that the salacious details of the in-house rumbling in the Oval Office make for good reads, but Americans don't like the notion that an anonymous person is going behind the president's back.

Each book describes a White House in chaos and Trump aides shielding the president from information in efforts to curb potentially unsafe policies or actions. The poll finds that 50 percent of voters would cast their ballot for a Democrat, while only 38 percent would vote for a GOP candidate in their district. Watergate reporter Bob Woodward published a book recently that depicted the current chaos in the White House as well.

The president's party often gets clobbered in midterm election years. Republicans have Trump to thank for that; his approval rating is at a meager 39 percent amongst participants.

Trump's overall popularity breaks down along lines of partisanship, ethnicity and gender, according to the poll.
