There's a new gallup poll out on just this question (h/t to Talkingpointssmemo on this).
I bring the news to you so that in your daily lives, when you're faced with a citizen of winguttia, you can look him or her straight in the eye and say, "Uh, no."
Of the REPUBLICANS polled, only about one third (34%) said things are getting better in Iraq. Leaving, of course, the other two thirds who think things are either the same or getting worse. It breaks down this way: 37% think things are about the same and 27% think things are worse. Again these are the REPUBLICANS we're talking about here.
Only a third of them think things are getting better in dubya's war. Surges? We don't need no stinkin surges!
So next time you stumble across one and he (or she) tries to tell you about how much better things are over there, you can remind your newly found friend that that's a minority view among God's Own Party.
Only about a sixth of those polled think things are getting better (16%) while a majority (53%) things are getting worse. A little under a third (30%) think things are the same.
Again, what surge? Wasn't there a surge that was supposed to clear everything up?
And of course, 60% think it was a mistake to send troops into Iraq.
It would be nice to have a Congress that agrees with the American People.
