Bill Clinton, the former president of the United States whose lie about the Monica Lewinsky affair in the White House’s Oval Office, tops a new poll which was released on Monday. More Americans can forgive Bill Clinton than other famed, public persons who have made notorious lies in the past, according to a Politico report on Monday.

In fact, 43 percent of the persons who took part in the poll - regarding famous liars and one’s ability to forgive them – assert via the survey that they can forgive the former president for having lied to Americans. That 43 percent for Clinton is higher than other famed-liars who have made incredible headlines with their dishonesty in the past. Other liars on the list included the likes of former President Richard M. Nixon, cyclist Lance Armstrong, and Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff.

Far behind in second place was Armstrong of which 22 percent claim they would be willing to forgive him for his lies regarding steroid use. In third place, Nixon mustered up 12 percent on the forgiveness survey.

Only 3 percent of those surveyed said they could forgive Bernie Madoff who committed billions of dollars of fraudulent financial dealings against persons. Madoff is serving 150-years in prison for his lies.

Incidentally, 11 percent of those surveyed couldn’t find it in themselves to forgive any of the listed notorious liars.

The survey was conducted by 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair.
