A new CBS News poll finds that a majority of Americans back the impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump — 55% to 45% — over his Ukrainian shakedown attempt to get dirt on Joe Biden.

CBS News: “More than half of Americans — and an overwhelming number of Democrats — say they approve of the fact that Congress has opened an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. But as the inquiry begins, there is no national consensus on how to assess the president’s actions.”

“Partisans have immediately and predictably split: most Democrats call the president’s handling of matters with Ukraine illegal, and deserving of impeachment.”

The poll finds that 42% believe Trump should be impeached, compared to 36% who say he does not deserve to be impeached.
