  • Support For Surge Surging

    Gallup released a poll February 18th that shows recent military and political progress in the country is bolstering American resolve to attain peace in Iraq. From Gallup’s news release:

    • Roughly one year after the United States began increasing the number of troops it has in Iraq, Americans give the “surge” their most positive assessment to date.
    • According to the poll, 43% of Americans say the surge of U.S. troops in Iraq is making the situation there better … up more substantially from 34% in early November … just 21% say it is making things worse.
    • Americans who believe the surge is working are solidly against (70%) a timetable.
    • The majority of Americans continue to favor a timetable for withdrawal, though relatively few favor a rapid withdrawal, similar to what Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is advocating.
