______________

This campaign was launched on September 30, 2005. Our purpose is to collect donations and use them to pay mainstream respected pollsters to include in their public opinion surveys questions about impeaching President Bush and related matters. Does the public favor an investigation into grounds for impeachment? Does a majority of the public want impeachment right away? What are the most popular reasons for wanting Bush impeached? What does the public think about various other proposals to hold accountable the architects of this war?

We have no way of knowing, because the pollsters aren't asking. One pollster did ask about impeachment in June. This Zogby Poll from June 30, 2005, (complete tables) found that a remarkable 42 percent of Americans favored impeachment if Bush lied about the reasons for the war. Various polls have found that a majority of Americans believe that Bush did so lie. That 42 percent is significantly higher than the percentage of the public that wanted Clinton impeached. Dan Froomkin of WashingtonPost.com reported on this in a July 6, 2005, article, and again in this Sept. 21, 2005, article. Bob Fertik, President of Democrats.com, has blogged about this here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here. RAW STORY has covered it.

Polling companies are unwilling to pursue the issue unless either (1) there is action on it in Congress, or (2) someone pays them to ask a question they wouldn't otherwise ask. That's where you come in. Donate by clicking the button below. Your money will be used to produce poll results on impeachment and related questions. The amount of money raised, how it is spent, and the poll results will be posted here.

We've named the fund you're giving to "Marginalized Majority Polling" because too often in this country majority concerns and positions are left out of polls and treated in news stories as radical and marginal. Too often people hold majority opinions and believe falsely that they are part of a small minority. We want to change that situation, as regards the issue of impeachment and the alleged crimes of the Bush administration.

This campaign was born out of the concerns of After Downing Street, Democrats.com, and of Luke Ryland, an Australian based blogger who tracks U.S. politics. It was picked up and carried to the next level by an internet activist, donna.never.surrender of Aggressive Progressives, who requested AfterDowningStreet's assistance to help assure success.

Please give any amount of money that you can: $5, $10, $50, $100, $1,000. Every penny, except the small fees taken out by PayPal, will be used to poll the public on impeachment and related questions.
