Biden 17 Voters Say They Want Congress to Focus on the Issues, Not Impeachment

Washington, D.C. – The American people have made clear that they want Congress to focus on the real issues impacting their lives like the economy and the cost of living and the economy rather than trying to impeach President Biden, according to a new poll commissioned by the Congressional Integrity Project and conducted by Public Policy Polling. The poll found that 74% of Americans including 68% of independents in the Biden 17 districts think the House of Representatives should focus more on issues like the economy, inflation, crime and border security over impeaching President Biden. 90% of voters in these districts including 93% of independents want Congress to stop playing partisan games and work to address these issues keeping them up at night. 

“The American people have made it clear time and time again that they want Republicans in Congress to actually do the jobs they were elected to and address issues like cost of living and access to healthcare rather than pursuing an evidence-free impeachment of President Biden,” said Congressional Integrity Project senior advisor Brad Woodhouse. “The Biden 17 need to decide whether they stand with Donald Trump and the extreme MAGA agenda or their constituents who have said that a vote for this bogus impeachment inquiry will spell danger for them.”

Other Topline findings include:

  • A majority (52%) of voters in these districts believe impeachment is more of a partisan political stunt, including 53% of independents.
  • 52% of these voters think an impeachment inquiry would be more about hurting Biden politically than finding the truth, including 54% of independents. 

  • 54% of voters in the Biden 17 districts say they do not trust Mike Johnson to be a fair arbiter of impeachment. 

  • A plurality of these voters (44%) said they would be less likely to vote for a member of Congress if they voted for an impeachment inquiry, compared to just 24% who said they would be more likely to.

  • 62% of voters in the Biden 17 districts said Congress should not impeach President Biden without any evidence, including 71% of independents.
