Public Opinion Turning More Against War; Another New Low for Bush

A CBS News poll shows increased opposition to the war:

More Americans than ever before, 77 percent, say the war is going badly, up from 66 percent just two months ago. Nearly half, 47 percent, say it’s going very badly.

While the springtime surge in U.S. troops to Iraq is now complete, more Americans than ever are calling for U.S. forces to withdraw. Sixty-six percent say the number of U.S. troops in Iraq should be decreased, including 40 percent who want all U.S. troops removed. That’s a 7-point increase since April.

Fewer than one in five thinks that the troop increase is helping to improve the situation in Iraq, while about half think the war is actually creating more terrorists.

The CBS News poll also showed what was recently seen in the ARG Poll and other recent polls with Bush’s approval at a new low. His approval in the CBS News poll is at 27%, down 3% from last month and one point below his privious low of 28% in January.
