60% of Americans say Biden should be impeached due to his handling of Afghanistan, finds new poll
52% of Americans say Biden should resign before he could be impeached
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. President Joe Biden is adamantly defending his handling of the pullout from Afghanistan.
But Americans are turning against him.
Fully 52% of Americans believe Biden should resign for leaving Americans behind enemy lines in Afghanistan, finds a new poll by Rasmussen.
If he refuses to resign, then even more Americans – fully 60% – believe that Biden should be impeached.
Only 37% said they do not think that Biden should be impeached.
On August 31, I reported on the mounting fury against Biden on Capitol Hill, including the growing calls for impeachment.
However, the poll also found that Americans have deep concerns about whether Vice President Kamala Harris is qualified to take over.
Regardless, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell sees no prospect for an impeachment given the current makeup of the House and Senate.
“The president is not going to be removed from office,” McConnell said Wednesday. “It’s a Democratic house, a narrowly Democratic Senate, that’s not going to happen.”
