(RepublicanWire.org) – With barely a year under his belt as President of the United States of America, Joe Biden finds himself in hazardous waters with American voters.

A just-released poll finds that half of all voters believe President Joe Biden should be impeached. And, almost as many voters believe that congressional Republicans will impeach Biden if the GOP wins a congressional majority in the midterm elections – something that seems highly likely at this point.

Specifically, voters seem especially angry with Biden over his immigration policy and what they perceive as his failure in Afghanistan.

According to Rasmussen Reports:

“Half of voters believe President Joe Biden should be impeached, and nearly as many think Republicans will do it if they win a congressional majority in the midterm elections.

“A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports and The National Pulse finds that 50% of Likely U.S. voters support the impeachment of Biden, including 33% who Strongly Support it. Forty-five percent (45%) are opposed to impeaching Biden, including 33% who Strongly Oppose it.

Here are the relevant questions Rasmussen asked during its polling process:

  • Some Republicans in Congress have endorsed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden, citing his immigration policy and his failure in Afghanistan, among other reasons. Do you support or oppose impeaching President Biden?
  • If Republicans win a majority in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections, how likely is it that they will impeach President Biden?

Clearly, if the Republicans take back the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate in the midterm elections, the country could see the third impeachment in just the last six years.

(RepublicanWire.org) – A new poll paints the US as a fractured country – split along the political divide, pessimistic about the economy and fearful our system of government itself is under threat.

Last week, NBC News ran a major poll of 1,000 American adults to find out what they think about where we are and where we’re heading – the results make grim reading. The top answers when asked to describe the state of the nation, were “downhill,” “divisive,” “negative,” “struggling,” “lost” and “bad.” And, as well as thinking things are bad right now, a majority don’t see them getting any better.

NBC found 72% of respondents think the US is headed in the wrong direction, while 61% say their real income is falling as the cost of living soars. Meanwhile, 70% believe political polarization has become so bad the country can no longer solve the major issues it faces. The last time this question was asked, in 2010, 50% believed the country would always come together in a crisis; now the figure is just 27%. Maybe worst of all, no less than 76% believe democracy and the majority rule are in danger.

NBC says this is only the sixth time ever Americans have been so pessimistic in back-to-back polls. Three of those times – 1992, 2008 and 2016 – fell in election years; at each of those elections, it ended badly for the governing party. With less than 10 months to go until the midterms, it’s not looking good for the Democrats.
