Poll: Plurality of Texans believe Trump impeachment investigations are justified

A plurality of Texas registered voters believe impeachment investigations into President Donald Trump are justified, according to a new poll.

A University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll released Friday found 46 percent are OK with the congressional impeachment investigation, while 42 percent are not in favor.

Not surprisingly, there is a massive partisan split on the subject. 84 percent of Democrats support the investigation while only 13 percent of Republicans do. Independents generally support the investigation – with 46 percent in favor and 32 percent not.

“The rank and file is still mostly solid behind the president,” Joshua Blank, research director for the Texas Politics Project, told the Texas Tribune.

Voters are split on whether Trump should be removed from office, with 44 percent against and 43 percent in favor of his removal.

Trump’s approval rating in Texas is also split – 48 percent disapprove of his job performance and 47 percent approve.

The University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll of 1,200 registered voters was conducted from Oct. 18-27 and had a margin of error of +/- 2.83 percentage points.
