Americans Want Troops To Leave Iraq

A Gallup poll on American attitudes toward the war in Iraq shows that 6 in 10 Americans want the U.S. to withdraw some or all of its troops from Iraq.

Well that seems quite non-controversial doesn't it? Who doesn't want our troops home?

The poll also stated that Americans are split as to whether the U.S. should keep troops there until the insurgency is contained, or bring them home 'as soon as possible'. Note that the poll does not ask if we should bring all of our troops home now, regardless of the circumstances.

But no doubt the Left will spin this poll to say exactly that: that most Americans want us to cut and run from Iraq now. From this poll, it seems like only a small fraction of Americans are actually saying that.
