There has been a lot of talk among some Republicans about impeaching President Joe Biden, if given the chance with a congressional majority, and Biden himself has on numerous occasions acted in ways that only fuel such impeachment talk.
Now a new poll has shown that more than half of American voters agree that President Biden should face impeachment, the Conservative Brief reported.
However, fewer than half believe that Republicans will actually follow through on their repeated vows to impeach the Democratic president.
Majority support impeachment proceedings
Rasmussen Reports surveyed 1,000 likely voters between Aug. 31-Sept. 1 and found that 52 percent supported a Biden impeachment while 42 percent were opposed to the idea of impeaching and removing the current president.
Those figures include 38 percent of voters who “strongly” support impeachment compared to 30 percent who “strongly” opposed such congressional action against Biden.
Interestingly enough, it isn’t just conservative Republicans who want to see President Biden ousted from office, nor are all Democrats wholly opposed to impeachment proceedings.
According to the Washington Examiner, the demographic breakdown of that Rasmussen poll revealed that of the 52 percent who support impeachment, 77 percent were Republicans, 50 percent were independents, and 32 percent were Democrats.
Will Republicans actually follow through?
Yet, just because a lot of Republicans have floated the idea of impeaching Biden doesn’t mean they will actually do so, and despite more than half of voters expressing support for them doing so, only around 47 percent believe they will actually go through with an effort to impeach and remove him from office.
Conversely, 43 percent believe that the impeachment talk is just that — simply talk — and that a GOP-controlled House will fail to fulfill their vows to impeach Biden, a number that includes roughly one-third of Republican voters.
That said, according to The Hill, there are some House Republicans who are completely serious about impeaching President Biden as soon as the opportunity presents itself, and they are said to be hard at work making preparations for when such a moment potentially arises in the next congressional term.
Numerous reasons to impeach Biden … if GOP leadership allows it
The reasons to impeach Biden are many and varied, and include such transgressions and derelictions of duty as the fatally chaotic withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan, the apparent refusal to fully enforce border security and immigration laws, certain unconstitutional pandemic-related policies, and his alleged links to son Hunter Biden’s likely corrupt foreign business dealings.
As for the belief by many Americans that House Republicans won’t follow through on the impeachment talk, The Hill’s report would seem to suggest that the problem in that regard could prove to be the GOP leadership team that may be hesitant to pull the trigger on impeachment and might prevent their members from going through with it.
