America Starting To Believe In Victory In Iraq

Published by at 9:35 am under All General Discussions,Iraq

I meant to post this a few days ago, but a Rassmussen tracking poll question on who is winning in Iraq has seen huge reversals since last year, when the SurrderMedia and Surrendercrats in Congress were promising certain defeat:

Nearly half of Americans (48%) now believe the United States and its allies are winning the War on Terror, as opposed to 20% who give the nod to the terrorists, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national survey. These figures reflect a dramatic improvement from a year ago—in July 2007, only 36% thought the U.S. and its allies were winning. An equal number thought the terrorists held the advantage.

The 28-point difference is the most favorable margin recorded by Rasmussen Reports since tracking began in January 2004 and seems to reflect a growing confidence among adults that the tide is turning in Iraq and in the war on terror in general.

But of course, Obama would still prefer we not have succeeded since he still prefers we did not execute The Surge – idjut

    He also seems to believe the surge didn’t do it but that the awakening was the entire reason for the turn around.

    Yeah got all that.

  2. WWS says:

    His bet is that 51% of the voting public is just as idiotic as he is.

    Seeing that even now, only 48% of Americans believe we are winning, he may be right.

    I am a fairly young guy with no kids yet and the thought of these morons running the country while my future children grow up scares me sometimes.

    I will admit that I have not been paying close attention to the victory/surrender discussion; has “victory” been defined? Even loosely?
    “Surrender” of course equals “admit that the invasion was not a good idea and get out ASAP”, so perhaps “victory” equals “stay there indefinitely”.
