Only about a quarter of Americans believe that President Trump will “definitely" complete his first term as president, according to a new poll released Monday.

The poll, done by USA Today and iMediaEthics, found that 27 percent of adults think Trump “definitely will complete” his four-year term, while 30 percent think he “probably will.”

The results found that 23 percent of Americans think Trump “probably won’t” finish his term, while 13 percent believe he “definitely won’t” complete it. Seven percent said they were unsure. 

The group that thinks Trump will not serve a full four years includes 1 in 10 Republicans.

More than half, 51 percent, of those polled ares dissatisfied with the way Trump is doing his job, compared with 44 percent who approve.

The poll also found that Americans are split on whether they believe Trump should be impeached, with respondents for and against impeachment both at 42 percent.

Nearly 70 percent of Democrats say Trump should be impeached, as do 36 percent of independents and 15 percent of Republicans.

Two weeks ago, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) formally introduced an article to impeach Trump over the objections of Democratic leaders, but Sherman admitted that there is little chance the bill will pass through a Republican-controlled Congress.

Several other Democrats have also called for Trump’s impeachment in the six months since he became president, but the party's congressional leaders have called such talk premature.

The survey was done online and included 1,330 adults who responded between July 17 and 19. There was a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points.
