To listen to the local rightwing blowhards (ok, ok - maybe it's JUST Mike Pintek, I haven't done a complete survey of the field), you'd never know that large majorities of the American People, even after hearing General Petraeus testify before Congress, want the troops to come home and the war to end.
CBS: 68% of those polled would like to see U.S. troops reduced or removed entirely. 51% think the surge had "no impact." 63% think things are going "badly." When Bush describes the situation in Iraq, only a quarter, 24%, think he's being accurate in his description. A full 65% think he's making it sound "better" than it really is (for those keeping score at home, that means that the people think our great and glorious leader is spinning us on Iraq).
I could go on, but I have to go to work.
