    CNN/ORC Poll: Majority say no to impeachment and lawsuit

    Aaccording to the poll, only 35% want Obama impeached, with nearly two-thirds saying the President should not be removed from office.

    There's an obvious partisan divide, with 57% of Republicans but only 35% of independents and 13% of Democrats backing a move to impeach Obama.

    "Anti-impeachment sentiment is roughly where it was for past presidents - 67% opposed Bill Clinton's impeachment in September 1998, and 69% opposed impeaching George W. Bush when a few Democrats began talking about it in 2006," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

    By a 57%-41% margin, Americans say House Republicans shouldn't file the suit. As with the question on impeachment, there's a wide partisan divide over the lawsuit.By a 57%-41% margin, Americans say House Republicans shouldn't file the suit.

    these polls are quite meaningless, given that a core of each sides base, would like to remove the oppositions president

    Not surprising that many voters love the American system until their guy loses.

    i've got liberal friends who say they'd like to see Republicans try to impeach Obama, just to further expose how screwed up they are. But I don't want to see it. Really bad for the country if this BS becomes routine and the losing party just spends its time trying to chase the election winner out of office.

    The White House itself is the only ones talking impeachment. They know its their only hope.

    The republicans know better than to throw Obama and the dems a life raft

    I think the lawsuit needs to go on to stop future prez's from so many exec orders to change laws which is beyond their scope

    The lawsuit will accomplish no such thing.

    you do not know that

    it is my understanding the lawsuit is to challenge obama's unilateral changes to a law - if they win maybe a future prez will think twice about violating the Constitution with exec orders

    Or you know, it's not media propaganda so much as status quo.

    "Anti-impeachment sentiment is roughly where it was for past presidents - 67% opposed Bill Clinton's impeachment in September 1998, and 69% opposed impeaching George W. Bush when a few Democrats began talking about it in 2006," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
