The USA Today/Gallup poll says that 57 percent of baseball fans say legendary pitcher Roger Clemens lied to Congress when he denied ever using steroids. Only 31 percent believed him. The fans’ call on Clemens pitch to lawmakers was beyond the margin of error, which was 5 percent in this survey conducted Feb. 21-24. However, 62 percent of fans said Clemens still should be elected to the Hall of Fame, so he fared better than Barry Bonds. Fans rejected Bonds as a Hall of Famer by 50 percent to 46 percent.
