New Poll Shows Majority of Americans Support Impeachment

By a margin of 53% to 42%, Americans want Congress to impeach President Bush if he lied about the war in Iraq, according to a new poll commissioned by AfterDowningStreet.org, a grassroots coalition that supports a Congressional investigation of President Bush's decision to invade Iraq in 2003.




The poll was conducted by Zogby International, the highly-regarded non-partisan polling company. The poll interviewed 1,200 U.S. adults from October 29 through November 2.

The poll found that 53% agreed with the statement:

"If President Bush did not tell the truth about his reasons for going to war with Iraq, Congress should consider holding him accountable through impeachment."

42% disagreed, and 5% said they didn't know or declined to answer. The poll has a +/- 2.9% margin of error.

The wording of the poll was "If Predident Bush..., Congress should CONSIDER holding him accountable through impeachment." The articles states that, "53% of Americans WANT Congess to impeach President Bush if he lied about the war in Iraq." The writer seems to be making a leap, but we should give him or her a pass.
