In the wake of a flood of scandals rocking President Barack Obama’s ivory tower, Wenzel Strategies conducted a telephone poll last Thursday for WND. I found their results surprising and encouraging. It revealed that a growing number of Americans believe that President Obama should be impeached.
Fritz Wenzel, President of Wenzel Strategies summed up the poll results, saying:
“It may be early in the process for members of Congress to start planning for impeachment of Barack Obama, but the American public is building a serious appetite for it.”
“Half or nearly half of those surveyed said they believed Obama should be impeached for the trifecta of scandals now consuming Washington.”
When they broke it down to the individual scandals, the results still indicate that Obama’s popularity is changing from hero to villain. Poll results for the Benghazi scandal indicated that 50.1% of Americans say that Obama should be impeached. Perhaps the most surprising result was 27.6% of Democrats that responded to the poll on Benghazi said that the president should be impeached.
When asked about the IRS scandal that only became public less than 2 weeks ago, 49% said that Obama should be impeached and again, 24.4% of Democrats responding said Obama should be impeached because of the scandal.
The third scandal covered by the poll involved the Obama administration’s invasion of the AP reporter’s telephone records. On this scandal, 48.6% said they believe Obama should be impeached and 26.1% of Democrats also responded in favor of impeachment.
