NEW YORK, Nov 15 (Reuters) - The televised impeachment hearings that began this week in the U.S. House of Representatives do not appear to have changed many minds about President Donald Trump, with public support for his impeachment about the same before and after the first U.S. diplomats testified, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

The national online poll, which ran from Thursday to Friday morning, showed that 44% of U.S. adults said that Trump should be impeached, while 40% said he should not be impeached. A similar poll that ran earlier in the week found 45% supported impeachment and 42% opposed it. (Reporting by Chris Kahn; Editing by Tom Brown)
