The poll question: Do you support or oppose the Senate voting to remove President Trump from office?
The poll results according to Microsoft News:
As the Senate begins its second day of the trial of President Donald Trump, a Microsoft News poll finds that 57 percent of likely voters support removing him from office.
The poll found that 57 percent support a Senate vote for removal, and just 37 percent oppose. Pro-and-con views were much closer before the House voted on Dec. 18 to send articles of impeachment to the Senate -- today the two views are 20 percentage points apart, and before the vote they were just 10 points apart.
Not surprisingly, there are huge differences on the vote by party. Ninety-three percent of Democrats support removing Trump from office, along with 67 percent of independents and 15 percent of Republicans. Hispanics and African Americans strongly support removal from office, at 78 percent of Hispanics and 77 percent of African Americans. Among whites, just 52 percent back removal.
