UMass Poll Mentioned in a New York Times Story on Republican Calls for Impeaching Joe Biden

A UMass poll finding that a majority of voters oppose impeachment of President Joe Biden is mentioned in a New York Times story about Republican Party leaders beginning to equivocate about the issue in the leadup to election day. “Pressed recently on whether Mr. Biden or any officials in his administration deserved to be impeached, [minority leader Kevin McCarthy] said, ‘I don’t see it before me right now,’” the article states. “The response reflected an awareness that impeachment — as commonplace as it has become — is deeply unpopular. A national University of Massachusetts Amherst poll released in May showed that 66% of voters oppose impeachment, including 44% who said they strongly oppose the move.” ( NY Times,10/28/22; News Office release)
