87% Favor Impeachment

Just a quick bit of news for all of you out there who are concerned about public support for impeaching Bush and Cheney: The Raw Story is reporting that an MSNBC poll shows 87% of Americans think there is ample justification to begin the impeachment process.
An MSNBC online poll shows that the overwhelming majority of its participating voters believe [George W.] Bush should be impeached.

The poll asked the question, "Do you believe ... Bush's actions justify impeachment?" Four choices were presented:

  • "Yes, between the secret spying, the deceptions leading to war and more, there is plenty to justify putting him on trial."
  • "No, like any president, he has made a few missteps, but nothing approaching 'high crimes and misdemeanors.'"
  • "No, the man has done absolutely nothing wrong. Impeachment would just be a political lynching."
  • "I don't know."
  • Of nearly 360,000 people who had voted in the "unscientific" poll by 9:30PM Eastern on Friday evening, 87 percent responded "Yes."

    Most of the public wants Bush and Cheney gone, out of power and in prison where they belong. Congressional Democrats should heed the wishes of the public, which put them in charge again after twelve years.

    Just something to think about.
