35% Say Impeachment Justified (35% Must Be Racists)

From The Hill:

Poll: 35 percent say impeachment justified

By Justin Sink | July 14, 2014

More than a third of all Americans and two-thirds of Republicans believe Congress would be justified in bringing impeachment proceedings against President Obama, according to a poll from YouGov and the Huffington Post released Monday.

Who knew there were so many racists in America? (Besides Eric Holder, that is.)

Thirty-five percent of all respondents, including 68 percent of Republicans, say there’s reason for Congress to try to remove Obama from office. By contrast, just 8 percent of Democrats say impeachment proceedings are justified.

The results mirror how Americans felt at a similar point during the George W. Bush administration. A 2007 poll from Gallup found that 36 percent of Americans believed Congress had reason to begin impeachment proceedings, including 54 percent of Democrats and 9 percent of Republicans…

It’s funny, but the way the news media talked about the possibly of impeaching Bush seems different from the way they talk about the possibility of Obama being impeached. Why is that?

Overall, a slight plurality — 39 percent — of survey respondents say Obama has not abused his powers as president. By contrast, 32 percent say Obama has abused his powers and should be removed from office, while 17 percent say Obama abused his powers but not seriously enough to justify impeachment proceedings.

Some 12 percent say that while Obama’s abuses of power rise to the level of impeachable offenses, Obama should remain in office…

Which is a pretty troubling stat, if you think about it.

  1. Obama’s abuses of power rise to the level of impeachable offenses? Forget impeachable, the man should be in prison for impersonating the president.
