Public Opinion Strategies has some polling data that suggests that over 50% of Americans want to finish what we started in Iraq and object to all this "redeployment" doublespeak for what amounts to retreat. Word on these data can be found here.
Since we've also got the stats that show a majority of Americans do not read this blog, we won't claim credit. And we won't even get too excited, as the problem in Iraq has as much to do with Americans' short attention spans as it does with Iraqis' intractable tribalism. It seems that a majority of Americans think this today. But after the weekend, who knows?
But we are hopeful that the poll-watchers who belong to the party of George McGovern and Frank Church might take a breather from their around-the-clock efforts to undermine any sliver of American military success that is emerging from the Middle East.
