Support for Impeachment higher now than it was in December 1998 

We've all seen this from Zogby today, right?:
In a sign of the continuing partisan division of the nation, more than two-in-five (42%) voters say that, if it is found that President Bush did not tell the truth about his reasons for going to war with Iraq, Congress should hold him accountable through impeachment. While half (50%) of respondents do not hold this view, supporters of impeachment outweigh opponents in some parts of the country.
Well, how does this compare to the Clinton impeachment?

Thersites points us to the numbers:
"ABC News Poll. December 16, 1998. N=510 adults nationwide.

"As you may know, the House of Representatives is expected to vote soon on whether or not to impeach Bill Clinton. If the House impeaches him, the Senate will hold a trial to decide whether or not Clinton should be removed from office. Based on what you know, do you think the House should or should not impeach Clinton?"
Should 40
Should not 58
No opinion 2
In short, support for Chimpy's impeachment is now higher than it was for Clinton's impeachment even after a six-year campaign accusing of Clinton of everything from murder to drug-running to causing it to rain.

Do you expect the press to say a damned thing about this?

Well of course not.

I hope I'm wrong.
