Americans: Withdrawal is not “surrender.”

"Americans: Withdrawal is not “surrender.”"

From a new Fox News poll:

One Senator recently claimed that setting a date for a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq is more accurately described as a date for surrender — do you think it is accurate to compare withdrawal with surrender?

Yes: 33 percent
No: 61 percent

Now who could that one Senator be?

MCCAIN: Supporters of this provision say they want a date certain for a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. But what they have offered us is more accurately described as a date certain for surrender.

UPDATE: Newshounds and Election Central have more.
