American Support For the War Part #2

Remember when we showed you this graph?

Boy did it create a firestorm in the comments section, after all, members of the far left liberal party cannot stomach the thought of American support inching upwards for our actions in Iraq. They cannot handle any news of success or progress in Iraq. They cannot even fathom the idea of success or victory.

They lose what little minds they have left over it.

Wellllllllllll, guess what? The poll was redone, and the results came out the same.

THE war in Iraq is the single most important continuing news issue right now. Public opinion about the war is a critical part of that story. That’s why when a finding about the war in a New York Times poll could not be easily explained, the paper went back and did another poll on the very same subject. It turns out the poll had gotten it right. Support for the initial invasion of Iraq, as measured by a question The New York Times/CBS News Poll has asked since December 2003, increased modestly compared with two months ago.


Forty-two percent of those polled said the United States did the right thing, and 54 percent said the United States should have stayed out of Iraq. The last time the question was asked, in May, 35 percent said taking military action against Iraq was the right thing and 61 percent said the United States should have stayed out.

No doubt the NYT was praying for a different outcome but, alas, their prayers went unanswered. In fact, the only numbers that changed was LESS, in the second poll, said we should have stayed out of Iraq.

When the second round of results came back, the numbers were nearly identical to the ones found in the poll about Mrs. Clinton. In the poll conducted last weekend with 889 adults, 42 percent of the respondents said the United States did the right thing in taking military action against Iraq, and 51 percent said the United States should have stayed out.

No mistake. American support for the war is increasing.

Deal with it.

More and more good news is coming out every single day, we show it to you consistently throughout the week, every week.

The American people see it too.

There was also a drop in the number of people who said the war was going badly. In the latest poll, 66 percent of Americans said things were going badly for the United States in its efforts to bring stability and order to Iraq. That is down from 76 percent who said the same thing in May.

Looks like some Americans are still capable of acknowledging the truth when it hits them in the face, or in this case, when they media starts showing some progress and success, instead of sweeping it under the rug.

The good news about Iraq, just got a little bit better. Thanks NYT!!!!
