Jacobs and Robert Y. Commentators and the American public were visibly struck by the unyielding drive of congressional Republicans to remove Clinton from office in the face of clear public opposition. There was little ambiguity about where Americans stood on Clinton's personal behavior and impeachment.
The avalanche of opinion polls during and early showed that super-majorities of nearly two-thirds of Americans condemned the president's personal misdeeds, but about the same number approved his job performance, opposed his impeachment and removal from office, and favored a legislative censure as an appropriate alternative punishment.
Despite Americans' strong and unchanging opinions, congressional Republicans defied the public at almost every turn. Beginning in the fall ofthe Republican-led House of Representatives initiated impeachment proceedings; its Judiciary Committee reported impeachment articles; and it passed two articles of impeachment on the House floor.
For all the civility in the Senate trial of the president on the House-passed articles of impeachment, the Republicans' pursuit of Clinton was checked not by a sudden attentiveness to public opinion but rather by the constitutional requirement of a two-thirds vote and the bipartisan support that this demanded.
The impeachment of Clinton can be added to the long list of policies that failed to mirror public opinion: The conventional wisdom that politicians habitually respond to public opinion when making major policy decisions is wrong.
Recent research, which we review in chapter 1, provides evidence that this list is not a quirk of recent political developments but part of a trend of declining responsiveness to the public's policy preferences.
While the impeachment crisis illustrated unresponsiveness to public opinion, it was also atypical in important respects. One of its most unusual features was the attention that journalists and political observers devoted to the decision of elected officials to ignore public opinion.
Politicians' disregard for public opinion on other policy decisions was never an issue. On impeachment, however, the press devoted generous coverage to Republicans' open discussion of their unresponsiveness and their insistence that they would "not listen to polls at all" Bill McCollum quoted in Rosenbaum .
Senator Rick Santorum spoke for many Republican legislators when he defiantly announced at the end of the Senate trial that "I don't accept that.
Standing for "principle," "constitutional duty," and the "rule of law" against the onrush of ill-guided public opinion was the defense that Republicans offered.
Perhaps most surprising was that Republicans rebuffed public opinion on an extraordinarily salient issue that put at risk their ambitions to expand congressional majorities and capture the White House in the year Even after the disappointing results of the elections, when Republicans unexpectedly lost seats in the House and failed to widen their margin in the Senate, they persisted in pressing onward.
What happened to politicians who were easily cowered by the threat of electoral retribution? The Republicans' handling of impeachment fits into a larger pattern in contemporary American politics. This book examines the connections of politicians to public opinion and the impact of this relationship on the mass media and the public itself.
We use the cases of Clinton's health care reform campaign and Newt Gingrich's first Congress as House Speaker to make three points that are echoed in the impeachment episode.
First, Republicans disregarded public opinion on impeachment because their political goals of attracting a majority of voters was offset by their policy goals of enacting legislation that politicians and their supporters favored.Health information systems and hospital information systems are complexes or systems of processing data, information and knowledge in health care environments.
