The poll was conducted by Ipsos and ABC News
"In an ABC News/Washington Post poll published in late January 2020, when the first trial was ongoing but before senators had voted, 47% of Americans said the Senate should vote to remove Trump from office and 49% said he should not be removed."
"But in this latest poll, 56% of Americans say Trump should be convicted and barred from holding office again, and 43% say he should not be."

Americans are not so happy with their former's president's involvement in the 6 January events
Apart from his impeachment trial, Americans also want Trump to face a criminal investigation into his role in the 6 January events.
Liz Cheney, one of the most senior Republicans - Trump's party, let's not forget - in the House of Representatives, raised her suspicions towards a tweet that the President sent in which he called his own Vice President Mike Pence a 'coward'.
Liz Cheney pointed out the 'massive criminal investigation' that is ongoing after the events on January 6.
She made that clear that 'every aspect'
of what went on that day should be looked at and 'everyone who was involved'
should be investigated.
Cheney's vote for Trump's impeachment almost got her removed from her position within the house
Liz Cheney further said;
"People will want to know what the president was doing,"
"They will want to know whether the tweet that he sent out calling Vice President Mike Pence a coward while the attack was underway was a premeditated attempt to provoke violence."
Keep in mind that Cheney herself voted for Trump's impeachment, which almost got her removed from her position within the house.
She fended herself saying;
"The oath I took to the constitution compelled me to vote for impeachment - it does not bend to partisanship or political pressure, and I will stand by that."
