Poll shows most Americans want steroid users out of record books

(AP)_A poll finds many Americans don't want cheaters in baseball's record book.

The ABC ESPN survey shows adults by a two-to-one margin say players who have used performance-enhancing drugs shouldn't get to keep records they've broken.

Two-thirds said anybody who used the drugs shouldn't be eligible for the Hall of Fame. Nearly the same amount say baseball isn't doing enough to prevent steroid use. Some 30 percent say the federal government should be responsible for rules regarding steroid use in baseball.

Eight in ten of the more than one-thousand adults polled said they're concerned steroid use by players encourages young people to try them.
