 Poll: Americans want Bush impeached

People are finally starting to get it:
By a margin of 50% to 44%, Americans say that President Bush should be impeached if he lied about the war in Iraq....

The poll was conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs, the highly-regarded non-partisan polling company. The poll interviewed 1,001 U.S. adults on October 8-9.

The poll found that 50% 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 by impeaching him.'

44% disagreed, and 6% said they didn't know or declined to answer. The poll has a /- 3.1% margin of error.

That's a very misleading headline. The poll asks the question "if he lied", but your headline does not mention it.

I would also like to see them conduct a poll where the people were asked simply "Do you believe President Bush should be impeaced for leading the United States into the War with Iraq?". I suspect we'll have a very different set of results.

Misleading? Incomplete, perhaps. But still, a fascinating development. It corresponds to the decline I've perceived in "W" stickers on cars....

I'd want him impeached too if he lied like Clinton did. But if turns out that he and and pretty much everyone was wrong about WMD, well bummer, but Saddam still had it coming.
