Poll: 67 percent of Texas Republicans want to impeach Obama [View all]

According to a new Public Policy Polling survey, 67 percent of Texas Republicans would like to see President Barack Obama impeached and removed from office.

The PPP numbers show the depth of political divisions in Texas: Overall, 47 percent of Texans approve of President Obama’s job performance, about 10 percentage points less than the rest of the nation. Public opinion is highly polarized along party lines: 95 percent of Democrats approve of the president’s work, compared to just 10 percent of Republicans. Independents — the only hope for Democrats seeking a Lone Star comeback in 2014 — give the president a 49 percent approval mark.

Two out of three Republicans want Obama impeached by the House and convicted by the Senate for high crimes and misdemeanors. Just one in three independents (32 percent) shares that view. And, oddly enough, one in eight Texas Democrats (12 percent) would go along with impeachment.

The state remains very much racially polarized: Just 32 percent of non-Hispanic whites approve of Obama’s performance, compared to 70 percent of Latinos and 84 percent of African Americans. Whites, older Texans and men are the most likely to disapprove of Obama and to favor impeachment.
