As so many times that they have been guilty of in the past, Democrats are once again overplaying their hand and misreading the tea leaves when it comes to what Americans want with the War in Iraq. Democrats have mistaken their midterm 2006 victorious election to mean a retreat from Iraq. No, that is what the uber-left wants … not America.
Not so fast. During the 2006 midterms many Republicans and Independents were upset with how the war was bing handled, not because they wanted to retreat. Many Republicans & Independents were upset by Republican political scandal. Most importantly many Republicans & Independents were upset with GWB’s amnesty immigration policy. However, Democrats have once again misread the signs.
Now comes a poll that says … Americans want to win in Iraq!
The survey shows Americans want to win in Iraq, and that they understand Iraq is the central point in the war against terrorism and they can support a U.S. strategy aimed at achieving victory, said Neil Newhouse, a partner in POS. The idea of pulling back from Iraq is not where the majority of Americans are.
Most normal thinking Americans understand that a defeat in Iraq would be disastrous to America. Politicians better start thinking what is in the best interest of Americans, not themselves or their political aspirations.
Check out these poll numbers of what Americans are thinking:
- By a 53 percent – 46 percent margin, respondents surveyed said that Democrats are going too far, too fast in pressing the President to withdraw troops from Iraq.
- By identical 57 percent – 41 percent margins, voters agreed with these statements: I support finishing the job in Iraq, that is, keeping the troops there until the Iraqi government can maintain control and provide security and the Iraqi war is a key part of the global war on terrorism.
- Also, by a 56 percent – 43 percent margin, voters agreed that even if they have concerns about his war policies, Americans should stand behind the President in Iraq because we are at war.
Hillary, Barack and the rest of the pull out at all cost Democrats better take a good look. See full article and poll numbers HERE. Stop playing politics with this issue. Our troops and our national security is not to be used for Presidential aspirations.
