Majority of Americans for Impeachment

July 6, 2007 - by Donny Shaw

H.Res.333, Dennis Kucinich’s [pictured at right] bill to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney, has been extremely popular on OpenCongress. It became the most-viewed bill in April and has held that position ever since with 10,332 all-time views currently. Now, new polling results are confirming that it’s popular with the general public as well.

The question was:

>Do you favor or oppose the US House of Representatives beginning impeachment proceedings against Vice President Dick Cheney?

Fifty-four percent of U.S. adults answered that they would favor beginning the impeachment process, 40 percent answered that they oppose impeachment, and 6 percent said they are undecided. Support for impeachment among registered voters is a little lower, but 50 percent still answered that they favor impeaching Cheney.

For example, this article from Scoop which is listed as the most recent news article, predicts that when Congress comes back from recess on Monday, the official list of co-sponsors will go from 10 to 14. Keep checking back to see if today’s new poll results help attract even more sponsors.
