The Daily Kos ran this story on February 2 commenting on the 2010 Comprehensive Research 2,000 Poll of Self-Identified Republicans. It was quite a large poll with over 2,000 self-identified Republicans answering a series of questions by Research 2000, an independent pollster firm.

  1. While I can't identify with these people on any of these questions, the one I have the biggest problem with is the first one. What do they think he could be impeached for??? Do they understand the Constitution? My guess would be no. I would hope they had to travel far and wide to find people as narrow-minded as this, however, my fear is that they could easily be right next door to me.
