AbstractThis special topic poll, fielded on September 14, 1998, sought respondents' views on Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr's ongoing investigation of President Bill Clinton and the resulting "Starr Report," submitted to the United States Congress on September 10, 1998. Opinions were elicited on whether the president should remain in office, resign, be impeached, or be censured, if it were proven that he either lied under oath or encouraged former White House intern Monica Lewinsky to lie under oath. Respondents were asked whether they believed Starr or Clinton, whether they believed that the investigation had been fair or politically motivated, and whether the investigation was about sex or serious lawbreaking. Those queried were also asked whether they believed that Clinton's behavior in the Lewinsky affair was separate from his ability to govern. The results of the poll were announced on the ABC television program "World News Tonight." Background information on respondents includes sex and political party.
