GOP Scare Tactics Not Working–Majority Wants Out of Iraq

The latest Rasmussen Poll  shows that Republican claims that we will die if a Democrat is elected or that the terrorists will follow us here if we leave Iraq are not scaring people. Rasmussen reports, “Fifty-seven percent (57%) of American voters now favor either an immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq (37%) or a firm deadline for their withdrawal (20%). The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that just 35% of voters are opposed to both of these options for ending the war.”

Even Republicans are less likely to fall for the claims of the White House. Only 52% of Republicans believe that the surge has made things better, while even fewer Democrats (12%) and Independents (26%) believe this.
