“Increasingly Weary”?


I’m beginning to think that Reuters must have some secret database of polls that no one else has access to. Steve in Indy wrote in to point out this Reuters article:

But the American public has become increasingly weary of the war in which about 2,700 American troops have died and sectarian violence is rampant.

Like I pointed out yesterday (and the day before yesterday) the American public is split 49%-49% on whether it was a mistake to go to Iraq. And, in the last three Gallup polling periods, the percentage of Americans that think it was mistake to go into Iraq has decreased.

July 21-23 was when the polls started turning around — three polling periods (two months) ago. Where is Reuters getting their figures from, and why are they still publishing outdated information in their news stories?
