The same poll finds 45 percent of registered voters believing that Trump has committed a crime since launching his bid for president in 2015, and an additional 61 percent who say Trump should be impeached if the special counsel investigation headed by Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerMueller report fades from political conversation Trump calls for probe of Obama book deal Democrats express private disappointment with Mueller testimony MORE turns up evidence of criminal activity by the president.

PPP's poll surveyed 761 registered voters between Jan. 19-21 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
