Poll: Most North Carolina Republicans Want Hillary Clinton Impeached If She Becomes President

A new poll released on Oct. 27 shows Hillary Clinton with 61 percent of Democratic support in North Carolina, but most Republicans in the state would support her immediate impeachment if she wins the 2016 election.

The poll by Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows a whopping 66 percent of GOPers support impeaching Clinton on the day she takes office.

However, PPP didn't ask Republicans why they would support Clinton's impeachment.

Republican Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama recently said that he would support impeaching Clinton because she allegedly compromised U.S. security with her private email server, which she had while serving as U.S. Secretary of State.

However, Clinton has not been charged with any crimes to support an impeachment.

The Washington Post noted on Oct. 21 that the House, which votes on impeachment, has said in the past that office holders cannot be impeached on crimes that they committed before they took office.

The PPP poll also found GOP front-runner Donald Trump ahead in North Carolina at 31 percent, Ben Carson in second place at 23 percent and Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida at 11 percent.
