Excerpt:Â Democratic congressional leaders have tried to quash the issue to avoid embarrassment, but more than half of likely Democratic voters say Vice President Dick Cheney should be impeached and removed from office, according to a new Rasmussen poll.The national telephone survey found 51 percent of Democrats agree Cheney should be impeached while only 22 percent disagree. Overall, 31 percent of likely voters agree, 40 percent disagree and 29 percent are not sure. Last week, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, introduced a measure to impeach Cheney. The bill was referred to the Judiciary Committee, where it likely will die.
Just 8 percent of Republicans and 30 percent of unaffiliated voters favor impeachment of the vice president, according to Rasmussen.
