The nationwide survey found that 46 percent of registered voters said Trump’s actions make him guilty “when judged by the constitutional standard of impeachment.” Thirty-four percent said his dealings with Ukraine don't rise to the level of impeachment.

Twenty percent said they were not sure.

Most of the divisions were along party lines.

Seventy-seven percent of Democratic voters said Trump was guilty of an impeachable offense, compared with just 15 percent of GOP voters who said the same.

Four in 10 independents — 41 percent — said the president's actions were an impeachable offense.

The survey comes a day after the House Intelligence Committee released a 300-page report making the case for Trump's impeachment. In late September, the House launched a probe into Trump's alleged efforts to leverage a White House visit and $400 million in military aid to get Kyiv to launch politically motivated investigations that would benefit him politically in 2020.

Much of the information in the report had already been revealed publicly through congressional testimony, but some previously unreleased phone records offered new insights into the extent of communications between key players in the probe.

The White House criticized the Intelligence Committee report, likening it to "the ramblings of a basement blogger.”

The Hill-HarrisX poll surveyed 1,001 registered voters between Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
