Based on this poll's results, the vast majority of South Dakotans are in favor of the South Dakota Legislature removing Attorney General Ravnsborg.

The survey from South Dakota News Watch explains, "66.8% of respondents strongly or somewhat support the removal of Ravnsborg by the Legislature, with 13.8% opposed and 19.4% undecided." 44.6% of the participants say that they "were strongly in favor of removal."
This information comes in the midst of Attorney General Ravnsborg facing impeachment charges after his involvement with the September 12th, 2020 car accident resulting in the unfortunate death of 55-year-old Joseph Boever. In fact, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has been vocal about Attorney General Ravnsborg needing to resign.
A previous story explains that Ravnsborg was driving on Highway 14 just a mile west of Highmore when he hit Joseph Boever at around 10:30 PM on the night of September 12th. Initially, Ravnsborg believed that he hit a deer when dialing 911. He searched the ditch as well as the surrounding area and found nothing. It was not until the morning of September 13th that Ravnsborg discovered the body while retrieving his car, which was left inoperable by the crash.
Ravnsborg was only charged with three misdemeanors as a result of this fatal crash. His charges included the following:
- Careless driving
- Operating a vehicle while using a mobile device
- Driving lane violation for driving outside of his lane
Time will tell to determine the fate of Attorney General Ravnsborg.
