A national survey of likely US voters has found that 50 percent support impeaching Joe Biden after just one year in office.
The Rasmussen Report sponsored by The National Pulse was conducted in January, and asked a collective of likely US voters whether they would side with Republicans in Congress who have endorsed articles of impeachment against the current U.S. President. Fifty percent of respondents stated they somewhat or strongly support impeaching Biden, with the remainder of respondents either stating they were unsure or that they oppose impeaching the current president.
When broken down by demographic, men and women were equal in their response to support an impeachment of Biden. Those aged 40-65+ had a slightly stronger support than those aged 18-39.
All racial demographics were united in their response. Almost 50 percent of White respondents agreed with impeaching Biden, 50 percent of Black respondents, and more than 50 percent of other racial minorities are in favor of impeachment.
Republicans led the charge, with 74 percent supporting Biden’s impeachment, with Democrats and liberal respondents also feeling split 50-50 over impeachment.
When broken down by employment, more than half of respondents working for the government supported impeaching Biden. Similarly, entrepreneurs, those working for private companies, retired, and individuals in all other employment types agreed that Biden should be impeached in the Republicans win a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2022 midterm elections.
Following this, respondents were asked how likely they felt impeachment would be should Republicans win back the House. Over 50 percent of both Republicans and Democrats felt it was very likely that Biden would be impeached.
The main reasons for favoring impeachment of Biden came from his failed immigration policy and his failed exit from Afghanistan.
The poll also asked whether the two impeachments of President Donald Trump were a good thing, a bad thing, or that they did not make much difference. Only 36 percent of respondents said the impeachment was a “good” thing, with 47 percent arguing that it was a bad move.
Sixteen percent stated they did not think the impeachment made much of a difference. However, Trump’s approval ratings rose 18 percentage points after the partisan impeachment of his presidency.
