A new poll revealed devastating news for President Joe Biden.
The poll, published by Rasmussen Reports, shows that half of Americans, including a sizable number of Democrats, support impeaching Biden.
What’s more, as we will see, is that they expect it to happen in the not too distant future.
The numbers on impeachment
“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?” the poll asked 1,000 likely U.S. voters.
Fifty percent said that they support impeaching Biden, and 33% said that they “strongly” support it. That’s opposed to 45% who are opposed to impeaching Biden, and 33% who are strongly opposed to it.
One important finding is that 34% of Democratic participants indicated they’re in favor of impeaching Biden. Additionally, another notable finding is that 50% of Black voters, a key voting demographic for Biden and the Democrats, also support the president’s impeachment.
Will it happen?
The survey also asked respondents: “If Republicans win a majority in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections, how likely is it that they will impeach President Biden?”
Here, 45% expressed their opinion that Biden is likely to be impeached should the Republicans take back Congress.
As stated, a number of Republicans have suggested that Biden’s impeachment is a possibility should the party take back Congress later this year. One of the first congressional Republicans to float the idea was Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
During an interview in early January, Cruz predicted, with Republicans retaking the House, “serious investigations of the Biden administration” that could provide the grounds for impeaching Biden. Cruz added that the immigration crisis at the southern border is likely the “strongest grounds right now.”
Compare and contrast
As Breitbart’s John Nolte pointed out, the poll puts Biden’s impeachment numbers on par with former President Donald Trump’s at the time of the Ukrainian phone call situation.
However, the important difference highlighted by Nolte is that whereas calls for Trump’s impeachment were based on unfounded claims, Biden’s are based on his long list of failures throughout his first year in the White House.
