Poll: Americans Overwhelmingly Approve Obama’s Iraq Plan

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

A new CNN poll finds widespread approval for President Obama’s Iraq withdrawal plan.

The question: “Barack Obama has announced that he will remove most U.S. troops from Iraq by August of next year but keep 35,000 to 50,000 troops in that country longer than that. Do you favor or oppose this plan?”

Those who favor the plan come in at 70%, with only 29% opposing it.

The data released so far doesn’t tell us how many people oppose it from the right for withdrawing troops from Iraq, and how many oppose it from the left for not going far enough. Then again, the makeup of the opposition doesn’t appear to be much of a concern if it’s only at 29%.
