U.S. opposition to Iraq war hits new high: poll | U.S. | Reuters
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Opposition to the Iraq war has climbed to a record high and President George W. Bush’s approval rating dropped to a new low amid growing dissent from members of his own Republican party over his war strategy, according to a new USAToday/Gallup poll.
Bush’s approval dropped to 29 percent in the poll taken Friday through Sunday, down from 33 percent in early June, USA Today reported on Tuesday.
One in five Americans said the increase in U.S. forces in Iraq this year has made the situation there better while half said it has made no difference, the newspaper said.
More than seven in 10 Americans favor withdrawing nearly all U.S troops from Iraq by April, the newspaper said.
