Yes, in light of the poll numbers:
A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 64% of Americans
would like to see U.S. troops brought home from Iraq within a year.
Thatís the third straight weekly increase in support for troop withdrawal
and a 6-point increase from mid-September.
Those figures include 28% who want the troops brought home immediately.
Thatís up from 20% four weeks ago following Congressional testimony by
General David Petraeus.
All questions concerning Iraq reveal stark partisan differences.
Eighty-three percent (83%) of Democrats want the troops to come home
within a year. Sixty-three percent (63%) of Republicans believe the troops
should remain until the mission is complete. That latter figure is down from
71% two weeks ago.
As for those not affiliated with either major party, 69% want the troops home
within a year. Only 29% take the opposite view and say they should remain.
