Poll: 8% Say Cheney Very Likely to Resign

Eight percent (8%) of American voters say it’s Very Likely that Vice President Dick Cheney will resign from office before his term expires. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of 800 Likely Voters found that another 18% say a Cheney resignation is Somewhat Likely. Forty-six percent (46%) say it’s Not Very Likely and 17% say Not at All Likely. The survey was conducted on March 7-8 following news reports that doctors discovered a blood clot in Cheney’s left leg. Twenty-four percent (24%) said they followed news stories on Cheney’s health Very Closely. Another 41% followed the story Somewhat Closely. The 66-year old Vice President has a history of heart problems. Blood clots can be fatal if left untreated, but represent only a small threat when properly treated.
