The Axios/College Reaction Poll found that 76 percent of college students surveyed say they support the inquiry, a more than 20-point jump from 52 percent who said the same in late May.


The results were divided heavily along party lines, as 97 percent of students who identified as Democrats said they supported the investigation while only 22 percent who identified as Republicans said the same. Among students identifying as independent, 76 percent said they support the probe.

Researchers surveyed 850 students between Oct. 8-10. The results have a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.

Other polling in recent weeks also has a majority or plurality of Americans supporting the inquiry.
