A survey to note
Via The Buzz at NRO, a link to this survey at Investor's Business Daily. A majority of Americans (70%) believe we should maintain our military in Iraq:
Conducted June 6-10 among 913 adults, the poll found nearly two of every three (60%) think America's foray into Iraq has helped sow the seeds of democracy in the Middle East. Among Republicans, that number jumps up to 87%. Even large numbers of Democrats (44%) and independents (53%) agree with that sentiment.
"Most Americans see a democratic Middle East as one positive outcome of the Iraq War," said Raghavan Mayur, president of TIPP, a unit of TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence, IBD's polling partner.
What's more, a large majority (70%) also believe it's important for the U.S. and coalition countries to maintain a military presence in Iraq.
