Poll: Support for Iraq war at all-time low
October 16, 2006

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A poll conducted for CNN over the weekend suggests support among Americans for the war in Iraq is dwindling to an all-time low. Just 34 percent of those polled say they support the war, while 64 percent say they oppose it.

Women led the opposition, with seven in 10 saying they oppose the war. Twenty-eight percent say they support it, which is the lowest support among women in any CNN poll taken since the invasion more than three years ago.

Support among men is stronger, with 40 percent supporting the conflict and 58 percent opposed to it.

This comes as the nation's top general acknowledged the overall strategy in Iraq is under review. Gen. Peter Pace, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told CNN that military plans, including the linchpin of U.S. exit strategy -- reliance on Iraqi forces to take up the fight -- is being reviewed. (Full story)

Troop withdrawal is a key condition for ending the insurgency, according to one of Iraq's most visible insurgent groups. A man believed to be the spokesman for the Islamic Army of Iraq issued a videotaped message Sunday reiterating interest in negotiating with U.S. forces. (Full story)

However, President George W. Bush personally assured the Iraqi prime minister Monday that he has no plans to pull U.S. troops out and that there is no U.S. timeline for Iraqi forces to take over. (Full story)

Thirty-four percent of those polled approve of how Bush is handling the war, with 64 percent disapproving.

The telephone poll of 1,012 adult Americans was conducted by Opinion Research Corporation Friday through Sunday.

Its sampling error was plus-or-minus 3 percentage points.

gees....and these same people were calling us idiots and traitors and anti-american some time ago. i wonder how many think cindy sheehan is an asshole now?

at least this time it didn't take 10 years as it did with vietnam. i remember being in many anti-war marches and the same flag waving jerks calling us the same names they called us now. history always repeats itself, and i knew from the start that the day would come when this country got sick and tired of being at war.

americans like their tv shoes, styles, their cars and the good life. no one can enjoy that when the news is full of americans dying, civilians being killed and their tax dollars going out the window.

Watch this Faux News video about Cindy Shehan and the war. I think Steohanie Miller deserves much praise.

Stephanie Miller smacks down Fox news again.
