    It seems Dems are going against the wishes of the Amercian people with their surrender plan, pull out dates, and attempts to cut off funding of the Iraq war

    The liberal media will be ignioring these polls, and libs may stare at the numbers in disbelief




    According to a recent USA Today/Gallup poll, 61% of Americans oppose “denying the funding needed to send any additional U.S. troops to Iraq,” and opposition is up from 58% in February. (3/23-25, 2007).


    A Bloomberg poll reveals 61% of Americans believe withholding funding for the war is a bad idea, while only 28% believe it is a good idea (3/3-11, 2007).
    A recent Public Opinion Strategies (POS) poll found that 56% of registered voters favor fully funding the war in Iraq, with more voters strongly favoring funding (40%) than totally opposing it (38%); (3/25-27, 2007).
    POS found also that a majority of voters (54%) oppose the Democrats imposing a reduction in troops below the level military commanders requested (3/25-27, 2007).
    A separate POS poll finds 57% of voters support staying in Iraq until the job is finished and “the Iraqi government can maintain control and provide security for its people.” And 59% of voters say pulling out of Iraq immediately would do more to harm America’s reputation in the world than staying until order is restored (35%); (2/5-7, 2007).
    A Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll show 69% of American voters trust military commanders more than members of Congress (18%) to decide when United States troops should leave Iraq. This includes 52% of Democrats, 69% of Independents and 88% of Republicans (3/27-28, 2007).
    According to a recent Pew Research survey, only 17% of Americans want an immediate withdrawal of troops (4/18-22, 2007). That same poll found a plurality of adults (45%) believe a terrorist attack against the United States is more likely if we withdraw our troops from Iraq while the “country remains unstable”
    Should a date for withdrawal be set, 70% of American believe it is likely that “insurgents will increase their attacks in Iraq” starting on that day. This is supported by 85% of Republicans, 71% of Independents and 60% of Democrats. (FOX News/Opinion Dynamics, 4/17-18, 2007).
    An LA Times/Bloomberg polls reveals that 50% of Americans say setting a timetable for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq “hurts” the troops, while only 27% believe it “helps” the troops (4/5-9, 2007).

    According to a Los Angeles Times Poll:

    Q: If George W. Bush vetoes the legislation, do you think Congress should pass another version of the bill that provides funding for the war without any conditions for troop withdrawal, or should Congress refuse to pass any funding bill until Bush agrees to accept conditions for withdrawal?

    Fund the war without conditions: 43%
    Withhold funding until Bush signs: 45%
    Don't know: 12%

    I know this is only one poll, but I believe that the tide is turning and that eventually more Americans will favor the withdrawal dates.

    Can you give a link to the LA Times poll? Who did they ask questions to? What is the margin of error? Was it likely voters or the easier to play with "voting age" group? Was it only people in California?

    Come on dude. Gives us the information!

    In case you missed it, I put up the actual polls that show RSR is dead wrong. Every major poll that he cites shows that public opinion supports timetables passed by the House and Senate.
    http://www.usmessageboard.com/showthread.php?t=48306&page=11

    PEW RESEARCH SURVEY:
    Q.51 Do you think the U.S. should or should not set a timetable for when troops will be withdrawn from Iraq?
    Should set a timetable 56%
    Should not set a timetable 38%
    Should get out now 1%
    http://people-press.org/reports/questionnaires/323.pdf

    FOX NEWS/OPINION DYNAMICS POLL:
    32. Do you approve or disapprove of Congress setting a deadline for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq?
    Approve 54%
    Disapprove 42%
    http://www.foxnews.com/projects/pdf/041907_poll.pdf

    LA TIMES/BLOOMBERG:
    Q49. As you may know, Democrats in both houses of Congress passed legislation that ties further funding of the war in Iraq to targeted dates for withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq. Bush says he will veto any measure that sets such a timetable because he believes it would tie the hands of battlefield commanders and make defeat in Iraq more likely. Do you think that Bush should sign a funding authorization that includes a timetable for withdrawal, or should he veto that legislation?
    Pass legislation 48%
    Veto it 43%
    http://www.latimes.com/media/acrobat/2007-04/28957478.pdf

    "(CBS) Most Americans back Democrats in Congress in their showdown with President Bush over Iraq, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll.

    Sixty-four percent of those surveyed favor setting a timetable for a U.S. troop pullout by 2008. The Senate passed legislation Thursday that would require the withdrawal of U.S. forces to begin by Oct. 1."
    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/04/26/opinion/polls/main2731960.shtml

    "WASHINGTON - As the Democrat-controlled Congress and the White House clash over an Iraq spending bill, with President Bush vowing to veto it because it contains withdrawal deadlines, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that a solid majority of Americans side with the Democrats.

    In addition, a nearly equal number believe that victory in Iraq isn't possible, and about only one in eight think the war has improved in the three months since Bush called for a troop increase there...The poll — which was taken of 1,004 adults from April 20-23, and which has an overall margin of error of 3.1 percentage points — comes as Congress considers an supplemental spending bill that would begin withdrawing troops from Iraq no later than Oct. 1, with the goal of having all combat troops leave by March 2008."
    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18312789/

    USA TODAY/GALLUP POLL:
    B. Setting a time-table for withdrawing all U.S. troops from Iraq no later than the fall of 2008
    Favor 60%
    Oppose 38%
    http://www.galluppoll.com/content/default.aspx?ci=1633





    Of course RSR will be ignioring these polls, and he may stare at the numbers in disbelief.

    Most posters who are contributing posters get WAY beyond 15. Drive-by spammers, on the other hand, do not.

    Sorry for the inconvenience. Welcome aboard, and hopefully you'll get to 15 soon enough.

    I can see why it is a good idea, it would keep the spammers down a bit and you could stop them before they post their links...
