Gallup Polls asked in their latest poll what Americans would tell Bush if they had 15 minutes with him to talk “about the situation in Iraq.” The results at this point were not at all surprising…
The majority of Americans — if they could literally file through the Oval Office and talk to the man they elected to be the top executive and commander in chief of the country — would tell President Bush to focus on developing an exit strategy from Iraq and removing U.S. troops from that country.
The full Gallup Poll results are here, but the bottom line consensus of respondents was:
The majority of Americans, as measured in a number of Gallup Poll surveys this year, believe the initial decision for the United States to become involved in Iraq was a mistake. Research also shows a majority of Americans favor a timetable for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. It is not surprising, therefore, to find that Americans — if given the chance to talk with President Bush about Iraq — would be most likely to tell him to figure out a way to withdraw U.S. troops from there.
Enough already, Mr. Bush… Bring the troops home. Listen to the will of the people and get your head out the sand!
