Iraq: Democrats Want Troops Home Now, GOP Want Troops to Finish Mission

Sunday, June 10, 2007

Iraq, the issue that enabled the Democrats to regain control of Congress, remains among the most partisan of issues in the United States today. A solid plurality of Democrats, 47%, believes the troops should be brought home from Iraq immediately. At the same time, a solid plurality of Republicans, 41%, believes that the troops should stay until the mission is completed. Sixty-nine percent (69%) of Democrats favor either an immediate withdrawal of troops or a firm timetable for withdrawal. Only 27% of Republicans share those views. A separate survey found a similar gap on the overall War on Terror--70% of Republicans say the United States is winning. Only 22% of Democrats agree.
