51% of Americans Favor Impeaching Bush?

Greg at The Talent Show writes:

The Talent Show: Political Noodling: a major media outlet like Newsweek... end[s] up burying a lede like this (via Digg):

...calls to impeach Bush: 47 percent of Democrats say that should be a "top priority," but only 28 percent of all Americans say it should be, 23 percent say it should be a lower priority and nearly half, 44 percent, say it should not be done...

Now wait a second...doesn't 28% plus 23% equal 51%? I'd think that a poll showing the majority of Americans favor impeaching the President would be pretty newsworthy, especially considering that this far exceeds the numbers of a President that actually was impeached. If the majorities favoring impeachment and repealing Bush's tax cuts is how Newsweek defines "less support", then the GOP is in a lot more trouble that I thought...

Now that is very interesting indeed.
