Governor Palin has called for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. In numerous interviews and op-eds, she has expanded her call and laid out the case. The object of her efforts is to get the American people talking, and boy has she succeeded!
While the losers in the Republican Party “leadership” do what they do best, cower in fear, Republican voters, and the American people, are starting to warm to the idea of impeaching President Barack Obama.
There are a couple of polls out today, including one from Rasmussen, that we’ll discuss in the next post. For now let’s talk about this surprising poll conducted by the extremist left wing Huffington Post:
Sarah Palin raised eyebrows last week when she called on Congress to impeach President Barack Obama, but a new HuffPost/YouGov poll shows that the former Alaska governor is not alone. A third of Americans, and two-thirds of Republicans, think Obama should be impeached.
Among all Americans, those saying Congress would not be justified in beginning impeachment proceedings against Obama outnumber those who think it would be justified, 44 percent to 35 percent, while 21 percent said they weren’t sure.
The question drew a huge partisan divide. Sixty-eight percent of Republicans said beginning the impeachment process would be justified, while only 8 percent of Democrats said the same. Independents were divided, 37 percent to 37 percent, while 26 percent said they weren’t sure.
Impeachment was described in the poll as “the first step in the constitutional process for removing a president from office, in which possible crimes are investigated and charges are made.” A HuffPost/YouGov poll experiment conducted last year found that support for Obama’s impeachment varied depending on question wording, but that at least half of Republicans said they would support his impeachment no matter how the question was worded.
NOT surprising is the fact that HuffPo readers were dead set against impeaching President Obama, while Americans in general were far more open to the idea. For the purposes of their article, results were combined.

If only the Republican “leadership” cared as much about America, and the Rule of Law, as the American people do!
