This special topic poll, fielded December 19, 1998, sought respondents' views regarding the United States House of Representatives vote to impeach President Bill Clinton, announced earlier in the day. Those queried were asked for their opinions on whether the vote was based on fact or on partisan politics, who was to blame for the situation, whether Clinton should fight the charges in the Senate or resign, and whether the Senate should vote to remove Clinton from office, censure him, or drop the charges. A series of questions addressed the same-day resignation of Republican Louisiana Congressman and House of Representatives Speaker-elect Bob Livingston after the disclosure of his extramarital affairs. Respondents were asked whether they agreed with Livingston's decision to resign, whether his resignation would convince Clinton to resign, and whether the increased attention being paid to the extramarital affairs of elected officials was appropriate. Additional topics covered Clinton's ability to serve effectively, the ability of Congress to work effectively, the ongoing United States air strikes against Iraq, Clinton's moral standards, the purpose of the impeachment process, and the role of the president in setting an example with his/her personal life. Background information on respondents includes age, sex, race, education, political party, political orientation, and voter participation history.
