Gallup: 55% Now Back U.S. Pullout from Iraq Within a Year

NEW YORK A new Gallup poll released today revealed another upward bump in the number of Amercians who now want a complete U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq in the next 12 months.

That number now stands at 55%, with 19% supporting immediate withdrawal and another 36% wanting it done by August 2007.

"While the percentage of Americans who favor a withdrawal of all U.S. troops either now or within a year is not a supermajority, it is a majority, suggesting that the Democratic leadership is speaking to an issue that resonates with many Americans," Frank Newport, director of the Gallup Poll, writes today.

Another majority, 54%, now say that the U.S. invasion in 2003 was a "mistake."

1. Should John Kerry be the president, this is not necessary at all
Let vote for Kerry 2008.

2. This is the Kerry/Feingold plan
Out within a year of July when they proposed it. Leahy and Boxer also got on board--and now those four have been shown to be with the majority, and all of the Dems who only favored the milder proposal were not.
