Public Opinion on Iraq

PUBLIC OPINION ON IRAQ….Here’s the latest chart from the Pew Research Center showing public opinion about withdrawal from Iraq. Just thought I’d pass it along.

The most interesting detail, I thought, was the educational breakdown. It turns out that among people with at least some college education, a little less than 40% think we should withdraw as soon as possible. But among those with a high school education or less, this number shoots up to nearly 60%.

I’m not sure what that means, but it’s not what I would have expected. Other interesting results can be had by clicking the link.
