Washington: Slightly over half of American voters oppose a congressional impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, a national poll out Thursday showed.

The NBC News survey of 1,000 registered US voters revealed that 56% did not want Congress to go ahead with the hearings, which are due to begin in the House Oversight Committee later in the day.

A further 39% of those polled said the legislature should start the process of removing Biden from office over allegations of abuse of power, obstruction and corruption involving his son Hunter.

The poll, conducted from September 15-19, also found that six in 10 independent voters also opposed the hearings, as did 88% of Democrats, while 73% of Republicans supported the impeachment inquiry.

The Oversight Committee has been investigating alleged foreign bribery and influence peddling involving the Biden family and entities in countries including Ukraine and China. Biden denies ever discussing foreign business matters with his son.
