CBS News poll: Americans remain divided on impeachment

Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus, Kabir Khanna and Anthony Salvanto

Hours of public hearings have done little to sway public opinion on impeachment. The public remains similarly divided on the matter, as it was a month ago, but more say the president deserves to be impeached than say he doesn't over his handling of matters regarding Ukraine. However, congressional Democrats have yet to convince those beyond their own base of their arguments for impeaching President Trump.

If the president is impeached and the matter heads to the Senate, the public splits on what it thinks should happen: 42% think he should be convicted and removed, while the same percentage say the Senate should not convict him or not hold a trial at all.

Is Congress' legislative business in jeopardy amid impeachment probe?
