Dismay Over Iraq Is Increasing; Public Supports Bush But Doubts He Has a Plan

The public agrees with President Bush that American troops should be kept in Iraq until a stable government is established, but does not think he has a clear plan for achieving success there, the University of Pennsylvania’s National Annenberg Election Survey shows.

Moreover, majorities now think the situation in Iraq was not worth going to war over and the war has increased, not decreased the threat of terrorism, and a bare majority disapproves of the President’s handling of the situation in Iraq.
