latest poll shows 0% of polling organizations ask about impeachment

bob fertik of
democrats.com sends a letter to the washpost/abcnews poll:

gentlemen,

i'm blogging on the reasons why no polling organizations have followed up on the june poll by zogby which found "42% say they would favor impeachment proceedings if it is found the president misled the nation about his reasons for going to war with iraq."

http://www.zogby.com/news/readnews.dbm?id=1007

this follows the final report that there were no wmd's in iraq in 2003. it also follows the revelations in the downing street memos that the "intelligence and facts were fixed around the policy" of invading iraq.

after the lewinsky scandal broke, only 26% of americans favored impeachment of president clinton. yet dozens of polls included this question:

in recent days, conservatives like pat buchanan have also called for bush's impeachment.

can you explain why the post did not ask a question about impeachment in its latest poll?

were you asked not to include such a question, either by senior editors or republican officials?

we would have ended with, "or are you just stupid?"
