Skip to comments.One-third of Americans support impeaching Obama. One-fifth don’t understand “impeachment.”

For the casual observer (or enthusiastic partisan), a new poll from CNN / ORC International reveals a staggering point of data: one-third of the country, 33 percent, supports impeaching President Obama. That's 100 million people (if we extrapolate those attitudes to children and so on)! Can he survive?
Yes, he can. As CNN itself points out, that figure is in line with public support for impeachment of Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton during their time in office. In August 2006, a CNN poll found that 30 percent of Americans supported impeaching Bush. And in September 1998, 29 percent supported impeaching Clinton. A Post poll from that December had the figure even higher, at 39 percent.
There's a good footnote to that data which we will get to in a second.
You will not be surprised to learn that attitudes on impeachment break down along party lines.

If the one-fifth think that means hogtied and horsewhipped and they’re still in favor of it....what’s the problem?
No impeachment. No martyr. Just take him away to a hospital for mental examination.
After the GOP takes over the Senate, you have slim chance of conviction. Without that, no way. You’d turn him into a living MLK. Just tighten the screws through the checkbook and House committees investigating the many scandals.
“you’d turn him into a living MLK”
That is the sad truth.
Talk about a brilliant political move. The Dems win! No one will try to take down The Won. Sad but true.
And much like the southern border invasion that he engineered...the poor little children need help. /s
I’m not afraid of Blacks being pissed off over impeachment. Let them riot.
Not afraid of riots. But that instead of staying home they will come out and vote the dems in out of revenge.
They should start impeachment hearings now. why wait?
I for one do not want an incumbent President Biden able to serve two full terms running for election in 2016.
40% of the Democrat voters think Obama might be a city in Nebraska.
Just Impeach the white-half :) s/
Anyone that believes a POLL (any poll) is a moron..
He’s black, in case you haven’t noticed. That means if 33% want him impeached, the number is probably more like 50%. 17% won’t even admit it in a poll.
There were 65,918,507 that voted for him in 2012 and possibly less if you ignore his imaginary friends.
Clinton, Bush II and Obama should have been, or need to be impeached for various reasons.
They should wait until after the election, but I think they should at least start talking about it. Start beating the drum for it. It’s not a sure thing that republicans will take the senate either, so, it may not come to anything either way. All I know, is, is that Obama is not fit to be POTUS. He’s a loon. A hate-filled, vindictive loon. He should only have a rubber pen and a rubber phone.
If we get Øbama impeached AND convicted before January 2015. Biden can serve only 1 term anything after he can serve 2 terms.
Impeached at this late time?? No. Let the dems loser the senate, defund everything
Appoint a special prosecutor, indict him and all his minions AFTER the next presidential election and put the whole bunch behind bars for a LOOONG time.
It’s very sad and discouraging that the country refuses to utilize a process that the Founders of the Constitution provided for us to deal with presidents like 0bama.
47% think “impeachment” has something to do with fruit.
The republicans won’t have a majority in the senate until January of 2015 at the earliest. There is no chance of removing Obama before a republican senate majority is seated. Impeach Obama and you could be getting the longest democrat administration since FDR.
