WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – A new survey has found that 32 percent of likely US voters think that President Barack Obama should be impeached and removed from office.
Rasmussen Reports conducted a national telephone survey on July 11 and July 12 surveying 1,000 likely voters across the country.
To compare, 39 percent of Americans favored impeaching President George W. Bush in July 2007.
The survey found that 26 percent of voters agreed that it would be good for the country if some in Congress did try to impeach Obama, while 13 percent said it would have no impact.
Rasmussen Reports also found that roughly 24 percent of voters believe that it would be good for the GOP.
Sixty-one percent of voters agreed that “people who oppose the president’s policies do so because they believe the policies are bad, not because of racism.”
Lastly, the survey found that 44 percent of voters think that Obama has been less faithful to the U.S. Constitution than most other presidents and that he has exceeded legal bounds with the executive actions he has taken.
