A Fox News poll released Wednesday found 51 percent of voters in favor of both impeaching President Trump and removing him from office, versus 40 percent opposed to impeachment. Support for impeachment was up 9 percentage points since a Fox News poll in July, including an 11 point rise among Democrats, a 5 point bump among Republicans, and a 3 point gain among independents. The poll was the latest to show rising support for impeaching Trump after the House opened an impeachment inquiry. When asked to characterize the House's impeachment inquiry, 48 percent of voters said Trump is "getting what he deserves" while 37 percent said it's "people out to get him." The poll, conducted Oct. 6-8 among 1,003 registered voters nationwide, has a margin of sampling error of ±3 percentage points.
