When Opinion Polls Attack
By Frank Salvato
February 23, 2007

Unless you are a politician or a network news anchor, opinion polls tend to be supplemental to the news. Very seldom are they actually grist for a news item. But two independent polls taken between February 5 and February 11 shed light on the public’s true sentiments where the issue of the Iraqi conflict is concerned. These opinion polls directly refute the contentions of the anti-war members of congress.

I've been saying this since the election, both parties once again misread what the electorate 'meant' in reality. It's the reason that the 'Slow Bleed' strategy was conceived than ditched. Same with the idea of cutting funding.

The administration is only now getting around to both challenging the Dems on the war, as well as explaining to the country the change in strategy. Why the heck isn't the administration out there daily, showing the numbers and how the change in strategy is moving along? (even the AP and Reuters have acknowledge the changes, but the administration shoule be hammering on this.)
