A surprising number of Americans seem to think impeachment is a good idea. From the very conservative magazine, Human Events:

Few serious observers think things will ever get to actual impeachment. And yet the American public seems more open to the concept than many imagine, according to a new national poll. The implications of this public sentiment could be huge for the 2008 presidential elections.

Our InsiderAdvantage/Majority Opinion poll asked this: “Would you favor or oppose the impeachment by Congress of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney?”

Favor: 39%
Oppose: 55 %
Undecided/Don’t Know: 6%

I should note that InsiderAdvantage/Majority Opinion is not a liberal polling firm — it’s led by Matt Towery, a former Republican state lawmaker who ran Newt Gingrich’s political operation for several years.

For a fringe idea, four-in-10 Americans is quite a few.
