A new poll from High Point University finds North Carolinians are split over the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The poll finds that 44 percent of respondents said President Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 43 percent said he should not.

A small number of those polled said he should be impeached but not removed from office.

The survey took place in the first week of November before the public hearings began.

The poll found the president’s approval rating at 40 percent, a two-point drop from September’s poll. More than half of respondents disapprove of the president’s performance.

Gov. Roy Cooper also had a 40 percent approval rating, but fewer people disapproved of the job he’s doing.
