Poll of the Week: Withdrawl from Iraq
Affirming the faith community’s call for withdrawal from Iraq, a Gallup poll out yesterday shows that the majority of Americans (75%) support President Obama’s decision to withdrawal troops from Iraq by the end of the year.
President Obama’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of the year generally fits with Americans’ wishes, if not those of many Republicans. Americans have been opposed to the Iraq war for many years. Since 2005, on average, a majority have said the U.S. made a mistake in sending troops to Iraq.
Thankfully, the political will to withdraw American troops from Iraq will now be in line with the public’s long-held consensus.
