A clear majority of Americans (52%) now believe President Biden should resign, the latest Rasmussen Reports survey found, while only 39% believe he should stay in office.
This poll was taken of likely voters after the Kabul bombing and the botched evacuation of Americans and allies from Afghanistan.
The Rasmussen poll also revealed that 60% of likely voters agree with South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham’s statement last week when he said, “I think Joe Biden deserves to be impeached because he’s abandoned thousands of Afghans who fought with us and he’s going to abandon some American citizens because he capitulated to the Taliban to a 31 August deadline.”
While there may be some impeachment talks going around, this latest poll showed that likely voters had little appetite for Vice President Kamala Harris to step in.
Only 38% believe Harris is “qualified” to be president, while a sizable 58% said she isn’t. And 47% said the Veep is “not at all qualified,” the lowest rating in the poll.
On Capitol Hill House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) held a press conference Wednesday to state that House Democrats blocked a vote to “require” the Biden administration to recover the military gear and Americans left behind in Afghanistan.
“Democrats just blocked a vote to require a plan from President Biden to bring Americans home and to account for all the military equipment he left behind,” McCarthy tweeted. “Republicans will not stop until every American is home safely.”
Lastly, Republican lawmakers blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for blocking them from reading the names of the 13 US service members who were killed in Afghanistan on the House floor.
“How badly do Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats want to cover up this Afghanistan debacle? They just blocked Members of Congress from reading the names of the service members who sacrificed their lives in Afghanistan last week,” tweeted Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R-FL) on Tuesday. “Don’t you think our military deserves better?”
