Should We Stay or Should We Go Now?


According to a new Gallup poll, about 70 percent of Iraqis said they'd be in danger if they were seen cooperating with occupation forces and about 64 percent said coalition actions are going worse than they expected when the invasion started. Fifty-seven percent wanted troops out quickly (within the next few months), while 36 percent wanted them to stay longer than that.

In the US, a CBS/New York Times poll has 52 percent disapproving of how Bush is handling Iraq, up from 43 percent in mid-March. Bush's unfavorable rating in general is now 43 percent, up from 39 percent in mid-March. Kerry's is 33 percent, up from 29 percent.
