Bloomberg/LAT Poll: Abu Gonzales Should Go, White House Staff Should Testify!

U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales should resign, most Americans say, and White House aides should be forced to testify before Congress about their involvement in the dismissal of eight U.S. attorneys.

In a new Bloomberg/Los Angeles Times poll, conducted April 5 to 9, 53 percent of respondents said Gonzales should leave his post. Seventy-four percent said White House staff members who had discussions about the firings with Gonzales's chief of staff should testify under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which the White House has refused to allow.
In other findings, the poll showed that a strong majority of Americans believe the U.S. is on the wrong track, and President George W. Bush's approval rating was 36 percent, a record low. In addition, a majority of respondents said they disapproved of the performance of the Democratic-led Congress, in part because of continuing divisions over the war in Iraq. The poll of 1,373 adults has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
I'll say it again: The Democrats cannot be too aggressive in their investigations of this Administration's corruption. The public is with them! Other polls show that even though there is majority disapproval of Congress, that number has dropped significantly since the Democrats took control. It will continue to drop if they continue to fight back against Bush.
