Zarqawi Zapped, Public Partially Pleased


While the long-term effects of killing Zarqawi in terms of the on-the-ground realities in Iraq remain to be seen (but it's not looking too promising just yet) it has so far only given a small boost to domestic opinion about the war, says CNN:

A CNN poll released Monday…found 43 percent of respondents said the war is going either very or moderately well, up from 38 percent in a March poll.

Fifty-four percent said they still believe the war is going either very badly or moderately badly, down from 60 percent in March.

And 55 percent said they believe the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 was an error—a figure unchanged from an April survey.
