More than three-quarters of college students support House Democrats in their impeachment inquiry into President Trump, according to a poll released Tuesday.

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.

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.

House Democrats have launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump following revelations that he pushed Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Trump has since publicly asked Ukraine and China to investigate the Bidens.

The president has denied any wrongdoing in the requests and has blasted the inquiry as a “witch hunt.”

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