Here's yet another example of the vast disconnect between political "conventional wisdom" and what real Americans actually think. A recent poll showed that 39% of Americans favor impeaching both Bush and Cheney
. 55% are opposed, 6% are undecided/don't know. That's an enormous amount of support, given that the idea is dismissed by all the "serious" folks. Just think what those numbers would look like if the talking heads and pundits took the idea seriously. At the very least, all those who think impeachment is a "fringe" idea can be swatted over the head with this poll.
And these numbers are from a polling firm with Republican roots
, and were published in Human Events
, which bills itself as "Leading the Conservative Movement * Since 1944".
Let's get some movement on this!
