New poll: 70% of Americans oppose escalation

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

The war is extremely unpopular with the American public. Even 60% of white evangelical Christians are opposed.

The opposition to boosting troop levels in Iraq reflects growing skepticism that the United States made the right decision in going to war in the first place and that a stable, democratic government can be established there. Just 35 percent think it was right for the United States to go to war, a new low in AP polling and a reversal from two years ago, when two-thirds of Americans thought it was the correct move.

Sixty percent, meanwhile, think it is unlikely that a stable, democratic Iraqi government will be established.
