STILL MORE GALLUP ON IRAQ



Text  



Finally, Gallup asked a fascinating question: “Which comes closer to your view about the war in Iraq — you think the U.S. will definitely win the war in Iraq, you think the U.S. will probably win the war in Iraq, you think the U.S. can win the war in Iraq, but you don’t think it will win, or you do not think the U.S. can win the war in Iraq?”  In every poll taken with this question since September 2005, the net number of respondents who say the U.S. can win has never dropped below 60 percent.  The “can win but won’t” number is at an all-time high, apparently representing those who supported the war but wanted to see the administration pursue it more vigorously.
