New reports suggest an overwhelming majority of voters want to see Biden’s impeachment as early as possible.
Republican lawmakers have already signaled to impeach Biden in a GOP-led Congress after the November elections.
Voters Want Biden’s Impeachment
According to a Rasmussen Reports survey, nearly 77% of Republicans do not want to see Biden as the president anymore, while almost 50% of Independent voters suggest the president should be impeached.
Likewise, almost 32% of Democrats are fed up with Biden’s poor performance, so they want his impeachment immediately.
Impeach Joe Biden?
Donald Trump was impeached, twice.
50% of all voters supported Biden's impeachment back in January. Now that's 53%

However, a significant number of voters believe Republicans will not pursue Biden’s impeachment, despite their repetitive claims they will do it after winning the midterm elections.
Reportedly, 47% of voters argued the GOP would try to impeach Biden, while 43% suggested the Republican Party would not even try to impeach the president.
Older voters within the age group of 40-65 years support Biden’s impeachment the most, compared to the other voter groups. Whereas most retired people do not want to see Biden’s impeachment.
Many political insiders believe the 2022 midterm elections will be a referendum on Biden, so the president should immediately change his way of leadership if Democrats lose the elections.

GOP to Impeach Biden Next Year
Republicans have repeatedly claimed they can impeach Biden after the November elections on various grounds.
Numerous Republicans already submitted articles of impeachment against Biden in the current Congress. Since the beginning of Biden’s presidential term, Republican lawmakers have introduced eight resolutions to impeach Biden.
Although the House is still unable to start debate on Biden’s impeachment, due to Democrats’ narrow majority in the chamber. Republicans are waiting for November to start the formal proceedings of Biden’s impeachment.
Some of the reasons for Biden’s potential impeachment, as per different Republican lawmakers, include surging crimes at the southern border, chaotic withdrawal of the US forces from Afghanistan, mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic, and Biden’s possible involvement in his son’s nefarious business dealings overseas.
Congressman James Comer, who is expected to lead the House Oversight and Reforms Committee in a GOP-led Congress, already insisted Biden will remain his top target after the November elections.
Likewise, Rep. Jim Jordan is likely to lead Biden’s impeachment in the lower chamber of Congress. However, Republicans will still need to get the support of two-thirds of senators in order to remove Biden from office.
This seems a highly improbable task, as the GOP will not be able to get a supermajority in the Senate post-November elections.
If Republicans try to impeach Biden before the midterm elections, the GOP is expected to face a political setback.
Some media outlets have even reported that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is reluctant to pursue Biden’s impeachment right now, as he claims it will hurt Republicans’ midterm chances.
