A recent Monmouth University poll found that 57 percent of Americans want Donald Trump to be barred from holding office.

According to Newsweek, a recent poll from Monmouth University revealed that nearly 60 percent of Americans want to see former President Donald Trump barred from ever holding public office again.

The House impeached Trump in January for his alleged role in inciting a deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol building. The article of impeachment is expected to be delivered to the Senate on Monday evening. Trump is the only U.S. president that has been impeached twice. If he is convicted in the Senate impeachment trial, which is expected to take place in February, Trump would be prohibited from holding federal office in the future.

In the Monmouth University poll, 57 percent of participants were in favor of blocking Trump from holding office again, while 41 percent of those polled opposed keeping Trump out of office. Two percent of respondents were undecided about the issue.

Only 19 percent of Republicans polled said they were in favor of barring Trump from taking federal office again, while 90 percent of Democrats said they supported the idea. Republicans opposed the concept by 78 percent.
