A Fox News poll released Sunday indicates that 49% of Americans think President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office.

According to Fox News, “Forty-nine percent want Trump impeached and removed from office, 4 percent say he should be impeached but not removed, and 41 percent oppose impeaching Trump.”

This number is just slightly down from last month’s Fox News poll that showed 51% of Americans wanting Trump impeached and removed. (RELATED: Trump Escalates Attacks Against Fox News)

The president slammed that poll, tweeting that Fox News’ pollsters “suck.”

Another poll also released by Fox News on Sunday shows that in hypothetical general election face offs, both former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders beat him.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has a 5-point lead over Trump, but Fox News notes that is within the margin of error for the poll.

Recent polling indicates that Trump faces a skeptical public as the impeachment fight heats up in Washington.
