(WTXL) — Most Florida voters are against attempts to impeach and remove President Donald Trump from office, according to a new poll released Wednesday.

The poll was conducted by Siena College Research Institute and the New York Times Upshot and surveyed voters in six battleground states: Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Results revealed that 53 percent of Floridians oppose impeaching President Trump and removing him from office, compared to 42 percent who said they'd support the move.

However, 49 percent, of Florida’s voters supported the impeachment inquiry conducted by the House of Representatives compared to the 44 percent who opposed the inquiry.

“Across the six states, 41 percent of all voters support both the inquiry, and impeaching and removing Trump from office, while 42 percent oppose both the House probe and impeaching and removing the President,” said Siena College poll director, Don Levy. “The remaining 17 percent, including about 8 percent of all battleground voters that support the inquiry while currently opposing impeachment and removal, may ultimately decide the next election.”

This New York Times Upshot/Siena College Battleground Polls interviewed 3,766 voters across the six battleground states from October 13-26 with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
