A poll conducted by the Los Angeles Times shows that voters now feel that the situation in Iraq didn't merit going to war. Fifty-three percent of the people polled said the situation in Iraq did not merit war, but 43 percent still feel that the war was justified. While many feel it is too late to abandon the efforts in Iraq, many fear that democratic government cannot be established in there. This same poll was done in March and November and that those times, the numbers were exactly reversed.
 



Poll: Voters Now Say Iraq Situation Didn't Merit War
Voters are increasingly concerned that Iraq is a quagmire America cannot escape, and they are doubtful that a democratic government will be established there, according to the poll published in Friday editions of the Times.

Voters' mounting worries about the war have damaged their confidence in President George W. Bush, the poll showed. Forty-four percent said they approved of Bush's handling of the war, compared to 51 percent in March.

The poll, which was conducted from Saturday to Tuesday, surveyed 1,230 registered voters nationwide. It had a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.

With the various polls and slight changes in support for Bush and the War in Iraq, it seems Americans are finally awakening to the truth that this war was not fully thought out. The increase of terrorism, loss of American lives, and high financial cost of the war, will be on voters mind's when they cast their ballots in this upcoming election.

i never go by polls, really a few hundred or thousand being asked anything can not accurately represent 290 million people.

The LA Times is notoriously anti-Bush and anti-war in it's left-wing leanings. I would expect no less from their 'polls'.

Which is why John Kerry has decided to enter the presidential race.

Oh goodie, another president that will most probably sell more military secrets to the Chinese and the Russians...probably even finish selling the US completly along the way.

Perhaps he will make Clinton's dream, of disarming all Americans and changing the "radical" Bill of Rights and "radical" Constitution, come true...

This also the same paper that took polls saying that Davis was ahead of Arnold in the recall election. They usually only poll a little over seven hundred people in an area that is mostly democratic. Although this one was just over 1,200. Take this poll with a grain of salt.

Follow nyeff's advice, turn on Fox, tune out from reality.

The Iraq situation never merited war, no matter what any American polls say. It's in the facts and the Bush admin believing that it is beyond international law.

The reality is that the LA Times is a a very liberal paper. Their polls are centered around 1 group of people. Watch and read what you want,I could care less.

Oh you mean because the Russian, the Chinese, the German and the French governments didn't want their dealings with the dictator to go sour made the US go against international law?

Yeah, perhaps we should had let the UN put some more sanctions and kill half a million Iraqi children under the age of 5 again. We would be back to the same problem a few years from now.. oh well, no problem, after that we could make some more sanctions against Iraq and another half million children would die.

Heck, as long as some heartless governments are making money with a dictator as Saddam, and they all agree that we shouldn't do anything else than help them expand, and substantially get more earnings from their business while the Iraqis and the rest of the world suffers the consequences of such dictators.....

The LA Times poll surveyed 14% more democrats than republicans, according to the news.

And to add to what Muaddib had to say, Chiroauc had an opportunity this week to mend fences with the US as well as lend French support to the situtation in Iraq. But, true to form, he stated that he is NOT in favor of using NATO troops to assist in the security of Iraq. He is apparently still miffed over the fact that the very sweet oil deal he had with Saddam prior to US going in is now over with.
