    However once again, there is no conservative move about to impeach Obama. A poll suggesting 1/3 would favor impeachment is not a movement.....and the same poll levels existed for the previous two presidents. You are attempting to ignore my point that the democrats are only mouthing: "They wanna impeach" as a ploy to raise money and inspire their base. It is actually quite amusing.

    You wouldn't have that anyway. Truman choose not to run again in 1952 although he could have. Eisenhower had ill health having suffered 4 heart attacks. JFK was shot and LBJ stepped down because he would probably have lost the nomination of his party. Nixon resigned, Carter was defeated. Reagan had Alzheimer and would not have run for a third term. Bush the first was defeated, Clinton since the passage of the 22nd amendment was the only president that probably would have won a third term if he could have run. Bush the second was too unliked and would have lost if he decided to run.

    Would a Clinton third term been better than Bush's first, who knows?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The ever increasing radicalization of the right becomes more and more obvious every day and now this poll clearly provides more evidence of the divide in America between the right and everyone else.

    65% of Americans reject the political tactic of impeachment but a full one-third of the citizenry are more that willing to go down that road. Nearly one in five simply want to use it to advance their own political objections and need no actual crimes for the process.
    In all fairness, roughly 30% is always the percentage of hardline partisans, right and left.

    This is from human-events-logo-2.jpg. Mitch McConnell the Senate Minority Leader from bright red Kentucky is in a dead-heat with Alison Grimes, who supports Obamacare, to McConnell, who is long been a vocal opponent. Ordinarily, a powerful incumbent would drive right over a challenger.

    The top Republican senator is locked in a dead heat with Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes, according to the July 19 Human Events/Gravis poll of 1,054 registered Kentucky voters.

    Sen. A. Mitchell McConnell and Grimes are both polling at 45 percent, said Doug Kaplan, the president of Gravis Marketing, the Florida-based firm that conducted the poll. The poll carries a 3 percent margin of error. Grimes, an attorney, is Kentucky’s Secretary of State.

    “With only 10 percent of the voters undecided, it is hard to see either candidate breaking out,” he said. “It really looks like it will be close through to the end with the decision turning on turnout.”

    Clinton may have managed a third term..but not a fourth. Most of Clinton's decisions and actions were designed around protecting his precious high approval ratings. That's my point. Some other president who cared more about staying in office then taking care of business would have always been around the corner.

    Also, should be noted that in polls like this people vote their emotion. They often choose options that they would never choose in reality.

    Nice try. However McConnell is and always has been a RINO. What McConnell says in front of the press does not always match what he says and does behind the scenes. Nobody takes his claims of being against obamacare all that seriously. That's why conservatives have plotted at different times to beat him in primaries in much the same way they did Eric Cantor.

    I hope the Conservatives stay home so McConnell will be defeated. His problems have nothing to do with Obamacare and everything to do with his failure to integrate conservatism into his policies. He and Boehner are disasters.
