Opposing the War

OPPOSING THE WAR….Via the Carpetbagger, here’s an interesting poll graphic from the Washington Post. A huge majority of Democrats think that congressional Dems have been too timid in opposing the Iraq war, and a solid majority of independents feel the same way. Even one in five Republicans think Democrats should be more forceful.

The demographic breakdown is here. If you do the arithmetic, 53% of all Americans think that congressional Democrats should oppose the war more forcefully. Only 37% think they’ve gone too far.
