Most Americans Believe US Winning War On Terrorism

Published by at 8:29 pm under All General Discussions,Bin Laden/GWOT

Want to shake up the 2008 race and nip the Obama juggernaut in the bud? Simple, start winning the War on Terrorism and put the lie to the Dems and Obama’s view on terrorism (surrender at all costs):

The latest Rasmussen Reports tracking poll finds that 43% of Americans now say the U.S. and its allies are winning the War on Terror (see crosstabs). While that’s down slightly from 47% a month ago, it’s the third straight month at 43% or above. That hasn’t happened since the three months ending in January 2006.

Twenty-five percent (25%) now believe the terrorists are winning. That’s little changed from a month ago but down from 30% two months ago.

27% say neither and 8% are not sure. But clearly continued success and rallying around that success is one of the few things that can destroy Obama’s credibility. Along with a candidate like Rudy who can make a run in NY, FL, CA, PA, NJ etc then you have probably one of the few situations that could lead to a GOP win in 2008.

    If Musharrif is successful in Pakistan killing a bunch of al Queda and Taliban and we help him on the sly it would be a really good thing for this country. Maybe then the Dems will stand up and say, what do you know, the offensive may be the way to go. Sometimes it feels that the Dems forget there is a world out there.

    If only it were so that success led to a rallying effect. Unfortunately, perceptions of success appear more likely to reflect or add to the complacency that makes the “Obama juggernaut” possible – and also that has opened up possibilities for Huckabee, sustains Romney, and suppresses Giuliani. McCain may seem like an exception, for the moment, but his surge in NH may well turn out to have been a political gold watch for his service on the way to retirement.
