It wasn’t that long ago when Democrats used impeachment as a tool to attack their political enemies. Namely, Donald Trump.
Republicans warned that abusing impeachment would blow back on them. And now, it looks like it has.
From Rasmussen Report:
Republicans voters overwhelmingly believe President Joe Biden should be impeached, and half of independents agree.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 52% of Likely U.S. voters support the impeachment of Biden, including 38% who Strongly Support it.
Uh-oh, Joe! I guess what goes around comes around.
Fifty-two percent of those asked support impeaching Joe Biden–who has the worst approval numbers of a modern president.
Of those, Republicans and half of independent voters want Joe impeached.
Some might scoff at the notion of impeaching Joe. But there is growing sentiment that he has met the threshold of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Even if we don’t look at his troubling connections with his son, Hunter, we see a laundry list of (possible) impeachable offenses.
The biggest, for many Republicans in D.C., is his treatment of the Southern border. Many conservatives believe Biden is willfully leaving the border open.
Because Biden refuses to enforce immigration laws, millions of outsiders have entered the country.
There could be more than a few Republicans willing to say that is a “high crime” against our national security.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Some Republicans believe Biden’s various policies meet the threshold, including his attack on American civil liberties (with his mandates) and his handling of Afghanistan.
We can’t predict if Joe will be impeached. But these numbers will give Republican lawmakers ample reason to pursue it.
