Six in 10 Americans Support Troop Reduction in Iraq

  • VOA News

A new poll indicates that 60 percent of Americans think the United States should withdraw some or all of its troops from Iraq.

The Gallup poll of about one thousand adults, conducted earlier this month, shows that public support for the troop withdrawal is at its highest level in two years. Only 36 percent of those surveyed think troop levels should be maintained or increased.

According to the survey 56 percent of Americans would be upset if more troops were sent to Iraq. The same number, 56 percent, said they do not believe the war in Iraq was worth fighting.

The new poll comes as violence continues in Iraq, more than two years after the U.S.-led invasion to oust former leader Saddam Hussein.

President Bush says democracy and stability is taking hold in Iraq. But he has not set a timetable for withdrawing U.S. forces.
