  •   Poll Taker: Did the Allegations Matter?

    Question 1 of 2 :
    If this affair did happen, would you want Clinton to remain in office as president, or would you want him to resign the presidency?

    From a January 23-25, 1998 Washington Post-ABC News poll. Complete Poll Data, including sample size and overall margin of error. The margin of error for subsample populations is larger. Percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding.

    Democrats were much more likely than Republicans to favor Clinton remaining in office if the affair did happen.

    Question 2: There are also allegations that Clinton himself lied by testifying under oath that he did not have an affair with the woman. If Clinton lied in this way, would you want him to remain in office as president, or would you want him to resign the presidency?

    1Remain in office
    2Resign presidency
    3No opinion
