New Poll: 60 Percent of Americans Oppose Iraq War

by Pamela Leavey

Results of a new CNN poll today show that “Sixty percent of Americans oppose the U.S. war in Iraq.” This is the “highest number since polling on the subject began with the commencement of the war in March 2003, according to poll results and trends released Wednesday.” Results also showed that “majority of poll respondents said they would support the withdrawal of at least some U.S. troops by the end of the year.”

According to trends, the number of poll respondents who said they did not support the Iraq war has steadily risen as the war stretched into a second and then a third year…

Sixty-one percent, however, said they believed at least some U.S. troops should be withdrawn from Iraq by the end of the year. Of those, 26 percent said they would favor the withdrawal of all troops, while 35 percent said not all troops should be withdrawn. Another 34 percent said they believed the current level of troops in Iraq should be maintained.

Check out the weird math from rightwing blog Say Anything, who puts the spin on the poll saying “91% Support Keeping Our Troops In Iraq.” But, hey we all know those rightwingers will say anything to support their spin.
