Good news, Republicans: swing-voters are now heavily leaning towards the right and beginning to shape what could mean regaining control of the White House in 2016. A new Fox News poll shows that swing-voters are adamantly opposed to the majority of actions made by President Obama in recent months and believe that he is behaving legally.
The poll showed 66% of independents disapproving of “Barack Obama going around Congress and using executive orders,” while only 15% approved the behavior. Roughly 62% of swing-voters also thought that the federal government was providing too many services to people, while 67% felt that his policies were creating an even bigger wealth gap between the rich and the poor. Lastly, only 21% of the swing-voting independents only rated him at an A or B on economic matters, while 57% graded him with a C, D, F or incomplete.
Obama’s continuing willingness to flout the law has led to many swing-voters also approving the Republican-led attempts to have the President impeached. Last month, Congressman Steve Stockman objected to Obama’s State of the Union address, in which he declared that he would act unilaterally on certain issues such as gun control “with or without Congress.” Stockman walked out of the address midway through and announced his impeachment plans shortly after.
“I could not bear to watch as he continued to cross the clearly-defined boundaries of the Constitutional separation of powers,” he said in a press release shortly after the speech. “Needless to say, I am deeply disappointed in the tone and content of tonight’s address.”
