35% of Americans Favor Impeachment for Obama

More than a third of Americans think President Obama should be impeached by Congress.

A new YouGov/Huffington Post poll shows 35% of Americans, and 68% of Republicans say Congress would be justified in attempting to remove Obama from office. Just 8% of Democrats agree.

From The Hill:

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.

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.
