WASHINGTON, D.C. -- As Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives work through an impeachment inquiry regarding alleged abuses of office by President Donald Trump, approval of Congress is now at 25%. That is up from 18% in September, prior to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing the impeachment inquiry following news of possible wrongdoing by the president in communications with Ukraine.
The increase in approval of Congress over the past month is the result of a 15-percentage-point jump among Democrats (from 19% to 34%) as well as a smaller increase among independents (from 19% to 25%). Republicans' rating of Congress is stable, at 17%.
This update, from an Oct. 1-13 Gallup poll, also finds that Trump's approval rating remains flat, at 39%, compared with 40% in the late September update. It is on the low end of the 37% to 46% range recorded in 2019 so far, with the 37% readings coming in January during the government shutdown. Currently, 87% of Republicans, 34% of independents and 5% of Democrats approve of the job Trump is doing.
Public opinion on whether Trump should be impeached remains mixed, but Americans now lean slightly more in favor of impeachment and removal from office compared with where they stood in June.
Currently, 52% say Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 46% say he should not be. This is roughly the opposite of what Gallup found in June when asked in the context of special counselor Robert Mueller's investigation.

In other news, dewey beat truman in ‘48! i read it in the news... lol
Its all about creating the illusion through fake polls, media nonsense non-stop, Congress and therefore trying to create the reality of it
Should have asked... ..Boxers or Briefs?
Worthless poll of adults that was conducted the 1st thru the 13th.
‘Currently, 52% say Trump should be impeached and removed from office’
I do not believe that statement....
“Mondale or Hart beat Reagan.” USA Today, 1984.
The Ministry of Propaganda is turning on the steam because the Democrat candidates are so clearly inferior.
I’m sure this will have FR’s Nervous Nellie’s, deeply concerned!
If my “fellow Americans” want to remove the President then they are my mortal enemies. And they will reap the whirlwind.
... and since when does a poll cover a 13 day stretch.
It’s just designed to contain outdated sentiment.
You seem deeply concerned.
Yep, the OP is often concerned.
If you factor in huge dem majority in California and NY, a poll of “Americans” might find this result. Election is another story.
