Former President Bill Clinton is the “liar” the public is most able to forgive nearly two decades after his scandal, according to a new poll.
According to a CBS-Vanity Fair poll, 43 percent of people said they are most able to forgive Clinton among a list of other famous people who have lied to the public.
The survey asks “which liar are you most able to forgive,” listing Clinton along with cyclist Lance Armstrong, former President Richard Nixon and Bernie Madoff.
Madoff, who is serving 150 years in prison, ranked lowest, with 3 percent who said he is most forgivable. Twelve percent chose Nixon, while 22 percent chose Armstrong, who admitted to using performance-enhancement drugs during his career.

The poll surveyed 1,016 people and has a 3 percentage point margin of error.
