A record number of Americans are pessimistic about the outcome in Iraq and now believe the war was a mistake, according to a CBS News/New York Times opinion poll out late Thursday.
Seventy-six percent of Americans think the war is going badly, up ten percentage points in one month, according to the poll.
Sixty-one percent of those polled said the United States should have stayed out of Iraq, with only 35 percent saying the invasion was the right thing to do.
Nearly half – 47 percent – of those polled said the war was going very badly, with just 20 percent believing that the recent “surge” of U.S. troops will make a difference.
And a full 72 percent of those polled said the United States is heading on the “wrong track” – the highest percentage recorded since the CBS/NYT pollsters first asked the question in 1983.
According to the poll, six in 10 Americans also want a timetable for U.S. troops to withdraw from Iraq.
However, this majority are not getting that timetable.
Time for more pressure by the peace movement, in the USA and worldwide.
