Independent voters are shifting in favor of the impeachment inquiry of President Trump, according to an NPR/PBSNewsHour/Marist poll released Thursday.

The survey found that independents now approve of the inquiry by a margin of 54% to 41%. That’s a 19-point swing from late September, when 50% of independents were opposed to an impeachment inquiry and 44% approved.

Overall, 52% in the poll approved of the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, while 43% disapproved. That was a slight increase from two weeks ago, when 49% approved and 46% disapproved.

The telephone survey of 1,123 adults was conducted from Oct. 3 through Tuesday, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
