Number of Americans who oppose sending more troops to Iraq, according to a new AP-Ipsos poll. “Just 35 percent think it was right for the United States to go to war, a new low in AP polling and a reversal from two years ago, when two-thirds of Americans thought it was the correct move.”

UPDATE: An ABC News/Washington Post poll taken after Bush’s speech last night finds that just 36 percent of the American public supports his plan to send more troops to Iraq. Barely three in 10 accept Bush’s claim that a “troop increase now will end the war more quickly.”
