Fresh Off the Wire - A Lot of Virginians Say Bush Broke the Law

Virginians think Bush disregarded the law when he ordered private citizens to be wiretapped; but so do a lot of folks.

SurveyUSA has a brand spanking new poll that tells a potent story: not one single state polled has a majority of adults who said Bush did not break the law.

Virginia checks in with 39 percent of adults who believe the president clearly broke the law. Thirty Six percent are sure he did not; and 20 percent think it's not clear whether the law was broken or not. More males than females said the president broke the law, 40 percent to 37 percent; and younger Virginians are more likely to say, oh yea, he was clearly breaking the law.

The swing state of Ohio has an incredible 13 percent difference between those who say the president did not breach the law and those who do, 29 percent to 42 percent.

Vermont leads all states with a 52 percent majority who said the president clearly crossed the legal line. By 40 percent or higher, 19 states said Bush broke the law: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Washington and Wisconsin.

Only four states said Bush clearly did not break the law by 40 percent or higher, and just barely: Texas by 40 percent, Alabama and Nebraska by 41 percent, and Oklahoma by 42 percent.
