Poll: Nearly half of Americans favor censure
The poll — taken of 1,005 adults from March 10 to 13 and has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points — was but one in a new round of surveys showing not only growing skepticism of Iraq but also distrust of Bush and his ability to do his job. Only 37 percent of those queried by NBC and The Wall Street Journal approve of Bush's job performance, only slightly better than the 33 percent approval rating the president got in a Pew Research Center poll on Wednesday.It's actually worse than that. Of registered voters, 48% think that Doofus should be censured. Someone who had access to the poll internals (I can't find the link) indicated that 12% of those opposed to censure did so because they wanted him impeached instead. Think about that. Sixty percent of (voting) Americans think that the president should be censured or impeached. Given that all of the scant news coverage for Feingold's censure motion has been slanted towards the Rethuglican talking points, and still, just a few days since Sen Feingold introduced the legislation, 48% of voters agree.
Bush fared best in the American Research Group poll Thursday, with a 38 percent approval rating.
But that same polling also found that the president, always unpopular with Democrats, may have lost independent voters for good. Although 42 percent of independents favored censuring Bush, 47 percent of them said they favored impeaching the president.
I think that is amazing. What is more amazing is that the hen pecked Democrats in DC don't seem to get the message that the country, outside the beltway, is fed up with King George the Incompetent.
Oh, and finally, we have this. When asked for one word that describes Dubya... they came back with the following top four responses:
Can we impeach this neer-do-well and his criminally incompetent cronies now, before he destroys what's left of our democracy?
