A new poll says only 22 percent of people in Minnesota want Sen. Al Franken to stay in the Senate after several women have said he groped them.
The poll, from KSTP and SurveyUSA, says 33 percent of those asked think he should resign, and another 36 percent think he should wait for the results of a Senate Ethics Committee investigation before deciding what to do.
"To me, the striking findings in this poll are first, that only 22 percent are behind Al Franken staying in office," said Carleton College political scientist Steven Schier.
He noted that there is no demographic group in the survey that shows a majority in favor of Franken keeping his seat.
Franken's approval rating was 53 percent a year ago, but as of this week, it was 36 percent, just a bit higher than President Trump's 31 percent approval rating.
Two more women on Wednesday accused Franken of groping them. Franken is spending Thanksgiving weekend in Washington, D.C.
