Poll: Americans Favor Impeachment If Bush Lied About Iraq

A poll conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs, the highly-regarded non-partisan polling company, on October 8-9 shows that, by a margin of 50 percent to 44 percent, Americans want Congress to consider impeaching President Bush if he lied about the reasons for going to war in Iraq. The poll was commissioned by, a grassroots coalition that supports a Congressional investigation of President Bush's decision to invade Iraq in 2003.

The poll found that 50 percent 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."

"The results of this poll are truly astonishing," said co-founder Bob Fertik. "Bush's record-low approval ratings tell just half of the story, which is how much Americans oppose Bush's policies on Iraq and other issues. But this poll tells the other half of the story - that a solid plurality of Americans want Congress to consider removing Bush from the White House."
