PITTSBURGH (KDKA Radio) - Registered voters in Pennsylvania are as split over the impeachment inquiry as members of the U.S. House of Representatives.

 A new Franklin and Marshall College poll shows 57 percent say they support the inquiry.

But the numbers are sharply divided by political party.

85 percent of Democrats are in favor while 21 percent of Republicans are.

No Republicans supported the impeachment inquiry in Thursday's U.S. House vote.

Pollster Terry Madonna says the difference is independent voters.

"One of the reasons the support for the inquiry is so high is that you've got a substantial majority (61 percent) of independents who say, 'let's do the inquiry'."

When asked whom they favor for the Democratic Party presidential nomination Joe Biden holds a solid lead in Pennsylvania at 30%. Senator Elizabeth Warren is a distant second at 18 percent Senator Bernie Sanders is at 12 percent. Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 8 percent.

Legalization of recreational marijuana is favored by 58 percent of voters. But 40 percent are much less likely to support legalization if marijuana were to be sold in state liquor stores.

Interviews with 482 registered Pennsylvania voters were conducted from October 21 to 27, 2019. The sample error is +/- 6.1 percentage points.
