What The Voters Want


Greg Sargent highlights some neglected material from a new CBS poll (PDF) released over the weekend. In particular, by a margin of 49-44 voters say congress rather than the White House should “have the final say about troop levels in Iraq.” What’s more, 58 percent of voters say congress should fund the war only with a timeline for withdrawal. Yet, somehow, you won’t see the press — or many congressional Democrats — acting like this is true.
