Extreme MAGA Republicans in the House are conducting a sham impeachment inquiry into President Biden. With no evidence to stand on, the impeachment inquiry is a clear use of the House of MAGA to buoy Trump’s political campaign – so clear, in fact, that Republicans are even losing support from their own base. Today, USA Today reported that voters across the political spectrum see the impeachment for what it is – an act of political theater on behalf of Trump – and wish that the Republican-controlled House would instead start spending its time doing its actual job, which is to advance policy that benefits the American people. 

Key Point: Republicans’ impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden could be costing them with voters, particularly with America’s moderates. About twice as many of these middle-of-the-road voters – a crucial bloc for both parties in this year’s presidential election – said they oppose rather than support the House GOP’s recent impeachment inquiry, according to a recent poll by USA TODAY and Suffolk University.”

USA Today: ‘More important things to be tackled’: Voters share their thoughts on potential Biden impeachment

[Savannah Kuchar, Sudiksha Kochi, 01/08/24]

  • Republicans’ impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden could be costing them with voters, particularly with America’s moderates. 
  • About twice as many of these middle-of-the-road voters – a crucial bloc for both parties in this year’s presidential election – said they oppose rather than support the House GOP’s recent impeachment inquiry, according to a recent poll by USA TODAY and Suffolk University. 
  • When it comes to the general public, though, opposition spans the political spectrum. 
  • David Jacobs, 42 and a registered Republican, called the effort to impeach Biden “political theater.” “I think that the House impeachment process is probably going to go nowhere, because there really isn’t anything to impeach him for,” said Jacobs, a physician from Long Island, New York.
  • Jacobs is among the 15% of self-reported Republicans who said they oppose the impeachment inquiry, in the latest USA TODAY/Suffolk University poll. Among supporters of Haley in the Republican presidential primary, this opposition number quadruples to 61%.
  • “It’s a shame that they’re going to spend so much time and energy on that rather than governing,” [Angela] Adams said.
  • [James] Traylor, a Forney, Texas city council member and vice president for a real estate development firm was lukewarm on the notion of impeaching Biden, however.
  • “I would venture a guess to say that there are probably much more important things to be tackled than this,” Traylor said.
  • “I wish that they would instead put their energy into solving problems rather than spending the time and money chasing after something that’s going to go nowhere,” Derr, a small business owner, said.
  • Jacobs, the Long Island voter, said not only does he think Biden is innocent, but that the current investigation into the president is a move to minimize Trump’s record.
  • “They’re trying to make it seem like Trump got impeached, but look, Biden also did, so not a big deal,” Jacobs said. “Again, I say this as a Republican, I don’t believe that Biden has done anything impeachable. I think they’re just trying to minimize what happened to Trump by sticking the same thing on Biden.”
