Majority of Americans says they oppose a congressional call to start impeachment measures against President Donald Trump following the investigation of private lawyer Robert Mueller over Russian intervention in the 2016 election, a Washington Post poll with ABC News found.

The poll showed that 37% of Americans prefer to start the process that can lead to accountability, while 56% say they oppose the idea.

Democrats in the House are debating how to proceed in the light of Muller’s findings, which he published in a report detailing several examples of possible obstruction of justice.

The new poll highlights the dilemma faced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other leaders.

While party leaders sought to belittle accountability, fearing that engagement in the process would backfire in the 2020 elections, their political base is supported.

Nearly 6 out of 10 Democrats say they support the start of such an investigation in the House of Representatives, with 53% saying they strongly support this view.

While 9 out of 10 Republicans oppose accountability, with 78% strongly opposed, which could end the president’s isolation.

Six out of every 10 independents oppose it now, but the survey found independents on Saturday more opposed to Trump’s isolation than in the January poll – a sign of the potential political risk for Democrats in their quest to regain key centrist voters in their bid to beat the president next year.
