The Monmouth poll also found that 16 percent of Republicans think Trump should not serve more than one term, versus 92 percent of Democrats and 58 percent of Independent voters who say the same thing about this subject. Of those surveyed, 36 percent said they believe Trump should be impeached, compared to 41 percent who were in favor of this in July 2017.

The survey also asked participants to state how they would like Congress to act as a check on Trump.

In total, 54 percent of GOP voters stated Congress should work towards keeping the president in line.
