Summary
This special topic poll, fielded November 20-22, 1998, sought respondents' views on the November 19, 1998, start of the United States House of Representatives' Judiciary Committee hearings on whether to impeach President Bill Clinton, and Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr's testimony as part of those hearings. Those queried were asked whether they believed that Clinton should be impeached and/or removed from office, and whether lying under oath regarding an extramarital affair was serious enough to warrant being removed from office. Respondents were asked for their views on Starr's claim that Clinton lied under oath about his affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and in doing so obstructed justice. A series of questions addressed respondents' impressions of Starr, Starr's handling of the charges against Clinton, and Starr's motives. Respondents were asked for their opinions on the House Judiciary Committee's decision to expand the impeachment hearings to include charges that Clinton made unwanted sexual advances to former White House volunteer Kathleen Willey as well as Clinton's role in 1996 presidential campaign fundraising activities. An additional question sought respondents' views on the November 20, 1998, resignation of Starr's ethics advisor, Sam Dash, who felt Starr's investigation was no longer impartial. On another topic, those queried were asked whether the United States should follow through with its warning that it would bomb Iraq unless Iraq stopped interfering with United Nations weapons inspection teams. A final question asked respondents whom they would rather have as a guest to their Thanksgiving dinner, Lewinsky or Starr. Background information on respondents includes age, race, sex, education, political party, political orientation, and family income
