A majority of Americans want to see former President Trump convicted in his second impeachment trial, according to a new poll published Tuesday ahead of the opening arguments.
A CBS News/YouGov poll showed 56% of people think the Senate should convict Mr. Trump, and the same number believe he incited violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
Forty-four percent said the Senate should not convict the former president.
Republicans, though, still widely support Mr. Trump, according to the survey results.
Seventy-one percent of the Republicans said any GOP senator that votes to convict him are “disloyal” while 29% said a vote to convict would be “principled.”
The poll was conducted between Feb. 5-8 with 2,508 U.S. residents. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.3%.
