A majority of Texas Republicans support impeaching President Obama, according to a poll released today by the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling.
Sixty-seven percent of self-identified Republicans and 39 percent of all of those polled believe the president should be impeached.
While 50 percent of Texans do not support impeaching the president, it is clear that the idea has legs among Republicans. However, as is common with these types of polls, many of those surveyed tend to take the negative option of any question regardless of the context simply because they do not support Obama.
The poll, which was conducted between Jan. 24 and Jan. 27, surveyed 500 Texans by automated telephone interviews. The margin of error is +/-4.4 percent.
This poll is not the only impeachment news to come out of the state.
Earlier this month, Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman released a statement threatening to file articles of impeachment if Obama signed executive actions on gun control. Stockman backed off of his threat a few days later.
