New poll shows one third of Americans support the impeachment of Obama

A new CNN/ORC International poll shows one third of Americans believe President Obama should be impeached and removed from office. That figure includes 57% of Republicans, 35% of independents, and 13% of Democrats. On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the new poll numbers.

The CNN/ORC poll was conducted between July 18 and July 20. The poll asked telephone respondents: “Based on what you have read or heard, do you believe that President Obama should be impeached and removed from office, or don't you feel that way?” The results showed:

Should be impeached 33%

Don’t feel that way 65%

No opinion 1%

While 33% is by no means a plurality, Glenn found the partisan breakdown, which included 13% of Democrats supporting impeachment, to be interesting.

“Can you look up the polls on where the Democrats were on the impeachment of Bill Clinton? That didn't work because the longer that went on, the more people got tired of the Monica Lewinsky thing,” Glenn said. “This is actually gathering steam because the more things he does against the Constitution that, you know, people who understand the Constitution and understand separation of powers understand that any president that is doing what this guy should be doing should be impeached.”

Glenn believes the Democrats who support impeachment understand it doesn’t necessarily mean the president is removed from office, instead it is an investigation and trial surrounding any wrongdoing.

“There should be a trial on this, not necessarily removed from office. That's the verdict,” Glenn explained. “‘Do you impeach him?’ That means do you have a trial in the Senate, and see if what he's doing is right or wrong. I know an investigation is never going to happen because there's too many weasels, too many people that don't care about the Constitution, and the American people don't know the Constitution."

The general lack of knowledge about the Constitution was evident in the response to survey question 41, which asked: "In general, do you think Congress should attempt to impeach a President in order to express dissatisfaction with his policies or the way the president is handling his job, or do you think Congress should attempt impeachment only if there is evidence that the president has committed a very serious crime such as treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors?"

Express dissatisfaction 18%

Only serious crimes 79%

Never impeach (vol.) 1%

No opinion 2%

“The Constitution calls for high crimes and misdemeanors. That's what it is,” Pat said of impeachment. “Not treason or bribery, but high crimes and misdemeanors.”

“So in other words. If you want to abide by the Constitution, then it’s high crimes or misdemeanors,” Glenn concluded. “A plurality of Americans, 45%, believe Obama has gone too far in expanding his power. 30% said the President has been right in the terms of presidential powers. 22% said he hasn't gone far enough. 22% of Americans think he hasn't gone far enough! What kind of all-powerful president do you want? Don't answer that question, please.”

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.
