A recent survey from Rasmussen Reports revealed something detrimental to President Joe Biden.
The poll showed that most Americans agree it is time to file the Articles of Impeachment.
Republicans and Independents overwhelmingly agree that Biden should be impeached, and surprisingly, a third of Democrats agree with that.
52 percent of likely U.S. voters say they would support the impeachment of Biden. 38 percent said they would strongly support it.
77 percent of Republicans, 50 percent of Independents, and 32 percent of Democrats would like Biden out of office.
A statement from Rasmussen about the poll stated, “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.”
Democrats currently control the House, which has prevented impeachment. However, it is highly likely that if Republicans win back the House after the midterms in November, they will go forward with impeachment.
There have been eight attempts to impeach Biden that has been offered since he became President.
Three of the impeachment resolutions were a response to his handling–or mishandling–of the crisis at the southern border. Three other resolutions were in response to his handling of the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan and one other was in connection to his son’s corrupt overseas business dealings.
Representative Bob Good said, “I have consistently said President Biden should be impeached for intentionally opening our border and making Americans less safe. Congress has a duty to hold the President accountable for this and any other failures of his Constitutional responsibilities, so a new Republican majority must be prepared to aggressively conduct oversight on day one.”
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is the lead sponsor for four of the impeachment resolutions.
“She believes Joe Biden should have been impeached as soon as he was sworn in, so of course she wants it to happen as soon as possible,” Nick Dyer, a Greene spokesman, said Monday in an email.
The Hill reported:
A noisy impeachment push from the GOP’s right flank could create headaches for Rep. Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), the Republican leader in line to be Speaker, and other party brass just as the 2024 presidential cycle heats up.
On the one hand, impeaching Biden could alienate moderate voters and hurt the GOP at the polls, as was the case in 1998 following the impeachment of President Clinton. Already, GOP leaders like Sen. Mitch McConnell (Ky.) are throwing cold water on the impeachment talk, suggesting it could damage Republicans politically in the midterms.
The challenge facing Republican leaders in a GOP-controlled House will be to demonstrate an aggressive posture toward the administration, to appease conservatives, without alienating moderate voters in the process.
