THE MAINSTREAM….From the latest Washington Post poll:

  • 78% think George Bush is too unwilling to change policies in Iraq.

  • 55% support legislation to withdraw from Iraq by next spring.

  • 55% trust congressional Democrats on the war (only 32% trust Bush).

  • 62% think Congress should have the final say about when to withdraw troops.

  • 49% think Democrats have done too little to get Bush to change his Iraq policy (only 17% think they’ve done too much).

Note to columnists: this is the mainstream of U.S. opinion. People don’t like the war, don’t trust Bush to prosecute it, and don’t think Democrats have gone overboard in opposing it. Got that?
