POLL: Bush Suffers Double-Digit Drop On Iraq Since Launch of ‘Strategy for Victory’ Tour

The latest Washington Post/ABC News poll finds that a majority of Americans (52 percent) think that the number of U.S. military forces in Iraq should be decreased – up 14 points since last summer.

President Bush continues to say there is progress in Iraq, but fewer and fewer Americans believe him.

Only 43 percent say the United States is making significant progress in Iraq in this latest poll, down a whopping 17 points from mid-December, when the Bush administration started its failed public relations campaign pushing its National Strategy for Victory in Iraq.

The country’s debate on Iraq must continue, and leaders in Congress need to look closely at the problems with the Bush administration’s Iraq strategy and consider serious alternatives.
