Half of Americans Mulling Impeachment

Document Actions

An October poll shows a growing number of Americans are looking favorably on the idea of impeaching President George W. Bush.

Fifty percent of Americans in the survey agreed with this 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.” Forty-four percent of respondents disagreed; 6 percent had no opinion.

These results show a substantial change in just three months: a late-June Zogby poll asked a nearly identical question. In that poll, 42 percent agreed and 50 percent disagreed.

Internet activists, led by, had urged major polling organizations to include the question in their polls. When none did, commissioned the non-partisan Ipsos Public Affairs to conduct the October poll. Funding for the poll came from 330 private donations averaging $27 each.

By contrast, an average of 16 polls in the months before Bill Clinton's impeachment showed support for congressional consideration of impeachment at 36 percent.
