A new survey has found that an alarming number of voters support impeaching President Joe Biden.
According to a newly released Rasmussen/The National Pulse poll, fully half — 50 percent — of respondents support a Biden impeachment, with around 33 percent saying they “strongly” support it.
The question of 1,000 likely voters conducted January 26-27, 2022, asked, “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?”
Those supporting Biden’s impeachment included 74% of Republicans, 34% of Democrats, and 42 percent of Independents.
Among those who supported the president’s impeachment included 33% who strongly support Biden’s removal.

The poll is not the first by the organization to address whether Biden should be impeached. A September 2021 poll found 60% of voters agreed Biden “deserved” to be impeached following America’s military departure from Afghanistan.
“After the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan in August, 60% of voters agreed with South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham that Biden deserved to be impeached. If the GOP wins a majority in the House of Representatives in the November midterms, 45% of voters believe it is likely Republicans will impeach Biden, including 22% who think impeachment is Very Likely,” Rasmussen found then.
“Forty-two percent (42%) don’t think Republicans are likely to impeach Biden, including 10% who say it’s Not At All Likely, while another 12% are not sure,” the firm noted.
Several Republicans called on Biden to be impeached after the botched, deadly withdrawal, including Rep. Brian Mast of Florida.
“No member of the Cabinet is going to push for the 25th Amendment so I would say that one is out,” Mast told Fox News, referring a the constitutional amendment that allows for the removal of a president deemed unfit to serve by a majority of his Cabinet.
“Impeachment is absolutely something that should be considered,” he said.
“We absolutely need to look at what is the truth about the phone call with [Afghanistan[ President [Ashraf] Ghani,” Mast added.
“I think we all know prior to any changes in the majorities of House and Senate you would not see anything move on impeachment,” he said.
“They would not allow such a thing to come to committee to have any of those questions. That’s the reality of what’s going on on the ground,” Mast, a former U.S. Army explosives ordnance technician who lost both of his legs in Afghanistan in 2010.
“[Biden is] hollow, his decisions are empty and void of wisdom and across the board, we see aggressors that he’s dealing with, maybe there’s an element of dementia that we might hear for years to come,” Mast continued.
“But at a minimum, the man appears schizophrenic with the statements in one camera and directly changing in front of the camera on different day or day after that or what members of the Cabinet are saying, there definitely has to be schizophrenia there,” he charged.
