A poll released on Monday revealed 50% of likely voters think President Joe Biden should be impeached, according to Rasmussen Reports.
The question of 1,000 likely voters conducted January 26-27, 2022, asked, “Some Republicans in Congress have endorsed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden, citing his immigration policy and his failure in Afghanistan, among other reasons. Do you support or oppose impeaching President Biden?”
Those supporting Biden’s impeachment included 74% of Republicans, 34% of Democrats, and 42 percent of Independents.
Among those who supported the president’s impeachment included 33% who strongly support Biden’s removal.
Among ethnic groups, the results included 50% of Black voters supporting impeachment. A total of 58% of other non-white voters also supported impeachment.
The poll is not the first by the organization to address whether Biden should be impeached. A September 2021 poll found 60% of voters agreed Biden “deserved” to be impeached following America’s military departure from Afghanistan.
“After the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan in August, 60% of voters agreed with South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham that Biden deserved to be impeached. If the GOP wins a majority in the House of Representatives in the November midterms, 45% of voters believe it is likely Republicans will impeach Biden, including 22% who think impeachment is Very Likely. Forty-two percent (42%) don’t think Republicans are likely to impeach Biden, including 10% who say it’s Not At All Likely, while another 12% are not sure,” the firm noted.
In addition to half of those surveyed supporting Biden’s impeachment, the Rasmussen Reports’ daily poll showed just 41% approved of Biden’s leadership as president.
