About half of registered voters say that President Donald Trump should be removed from office and that if he survives the impeachment effort, he’ll have a tough time beating the Democratic candidate in the 2020 election, according to a FOX News poll released Sunday

The poll was conducted Dec. 8-11, a week before the House is to vote on articles of impeachment against Trump.  

The poll found that 50% of registered voters say Trump should be impeached in the House, convicted in the Senate and removed from office. Forty-one percent say the House should vote against impeaching the president and 4% say he should be impeached but not removed from office. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. 

Despite months of testimony from witnesses and congressional debate, those numbers are almost identical to the ones Fox News’ pollsters found when the allegations against Trump surfaced. A poll conducted in early October found 51% said Trump should be removed, 40% said he should not be impeached and 4% said he should be impeached but not removed. A poll later that month found the numbers to be 49%, 41% and 4%, respectively.
