Finally 20% of voters, including 35% of Republicans [as well as 10% of Democrats, and 5% of people who voted for Obama], support impeaching Obama for his actions so far. I'm not clear exactly what 'high crimes and misdemeanors' they are using to justify that position but there may be a certain segment of voters on both the right and the left these days that simply think the President doing things they don't agree with is grounds for removal from office. I don't think Obama has a lot to worry about on that front.
Personally, if I had to communicate any single message to any politician running for Federal Office, I'd tell them I will not vote for any candidate who does not publicly state that he is hell-bent on repealing every piece of major legislation the Obama Administration has passed, and that he will not rest until that is done, and Obama himself is impeached. That's what it will take to get my vote. If they can impeach someone for lying under oath, then certainly what Obama did to the GM bond-holders alone is a good start to a decent case for impeachment. And even just 11 months into his Presidency, it seems there are countless other actions that could be reasonably be considered "impeachable offenses". I won't hold my breath.
