America Wants Troops To Come Home

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Military, Polls, The World, War

The polls keep coming and the opposition keeps growing.

Basically, America is pissed.

From CBS:

More Americans than ever before, 77 percent, say the war is going badly, up from 66 percent just two months ago. Nearly half, 47 percent, say it’s going very badly.

While the springtime surge in U.S. troops to Iraq is now complete, more Americans than ever are calling for U.S. forces to withdraw. Sixty-six percent say the number of U.S. troops in Iraq should be decreased, including 40 percent who want all U.S. troops removed. That’s a 7-point increase since April.

But America, are you on the right track?

The poll found a record number of Americans, 75 percent, believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. Only 19 percent think the U.S. is on the right track � the lowest number since CBS News first asked the question in 1983.

Hey George, don’t you think it’s about time you start listening to America since, you know, America elected you?
