Poll: One third of Americans want Obama impeached

1

A new poll shows more than one third of people in the United States think President Barack Obama should be impeached by Congress.

According to a CNN/ORC International poll released on Friday, 65 percent of Americans are against the impeachment, but 35 percent think Obama should be impeached and removed from the White House.

Support for impeachment cuts down party lines, with 57 percent of Republicans saying they support impeaching Obama but just 35% of independent voters and 13% of Democrats backing the idea.

“Anti-impeachment sentiment is roughly where it was for past presidents,” said CNN polling director Keating Holland. “Sixty-seven percent opposed Bill Clinton’s impeachment in September 1998 and 69 percent opposed impeaching George W. Bush when a few Democrats began talking about it in 2006.”

Holland said US nationals, by and large, consider impeachment a serious issue.

“Only about one in five say that impeachment is a valid response if Congress is dissatisfied with a president’s policies or the way he is handling his job,” he said. “Nearly eight in 10 say impeachment should be reserved for high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Meanwhile, Dan Pfeiffer, one of Obama’s longest-serving advisers, said on Friday Republicans might try to impeach the president over his immigration strategy.

“The president acting on immigration reform will certainly up the likelihood that they would contemplate impeachment,” Pfeiffer said.

The top White House adviser said it would be “foolish to discount the possibility” that Republicans will at least consider it.
