Most independent and GOP voters want Biden impeached?
Ok, the big book (not the bible, stupid) says, "the President, as well as the Vice-President and all civil officers, may be impeached for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors." Being senile and not knowing what day of the week it is a crime? Don't think so.
The Hunter Biden stuff. Hmm...that dog might hunt. When the Repubs control the House, this November, we'll have a good old-fashioned witch hunt and see if Joe's going to get pitchforked.
Impeach Biden? Most GOP, Independent Voters Say ‘Yes’
Thursday, September 08, 2022
Republicans voters overwhelmingly believe President Joe Biden should be impeached, and half of independents agree.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 52% of Likely U.S. voters support the impeachment of Biden, including 38% who Strongly Support it. Forty-two percent (42%) are opposed to impeaching Biden, including 30% who Strongly Oppose it. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
A year ago, Republicans led by Ohio Rep. Bob Gibbs filed articles of impeachment against Biden, citing his immigration policy and his failure in Afghanistan, among other reasons. Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene reacted to Biden’s speech last week by declaring that he “is a danger to us all” and “must be impeached.” Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Republican voters, 32% of Democrats and 50% of voters not affiliated with either major party at least somewhat support Biden’s impeachment.
Support for impeaching Biden has increased slightly since January, but voters aren’t confident that Republicans will follow through. If the GOP wins a majority in the House of Representatives in the November midterms, 47% of voters believe it is likely Republicans will impeach Biden, including 21% who think impeachment is Very Likely. Forty-three percent (43%) don’t think Republicans are likely to impeach Biden, including 17% who say it’s Not At All Likely, while another 10% are not sure.
The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on August 31-September 1, 2022 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
In January, unaffiliated voters opposed Biden’s impeachment by a seven-point margin, 49%-42%, but now support his impeachment by a nine-point margin.
While 61% of GOP voters believe it is at least somewhat likely Republicans will impeach Biden if they win in November, only 37% of Democrats and 44% of unaffiliated voters think it’s likely.
Fifty-four percent (54%) of whites, 38% of black voters and 60% of other minorities at least somewhat support impeaching Biden.
Support for impeaching Biden is highest among voters 40-64, who are also most likely to think that if Republicans win in the midterms, they actually will impeach the president. Retirees are least supportive of impeaching Biden.
More men (57%) than women voters (49%) support impeaching Biden.
Among voters who Strongly Support impeaching Biden, 72% believe it is at least somewhat likely Republicans will do it if they win in November.
A majority of voters with annual incomes below $100,000, but only 34% of those earning more than $200,000 a year, at least somewhat support Biden’s impeachment.
By a six-point margin, voters view the upcoming midterm elections as being more about President Joe Biden than individual candidates and issues, and half say a Republican win means Biden should change course.
The abandoned laptop that revealed Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealing remains an important story, according to voters, many of whom think it could have changed the 2020 election.
