43% Support Petraeus

Time for the cut-and-run Democrats to regroup.

43% Support Petraeus Recommendation, 38% Oppose
Forty-three percent (43%) of Americans favor the recommendation made by General David Petraeus to withdraw 30,000 soldiers from Iraq but leave 130,000 troops in place at least through the summer. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 38% are opposed and 19% are not sure.

The survey also found that Americans may have resigned themselves to the fact that U.S. troops are likely to remain in Iraq for a long time. Seventy-one percent (71%) say that it is somewhat or very likely that “a large number of U.S. soldiers will remain in Iraq five years from today.” That would mean a large troop presence in Iraq when the next President’s first term is drawing to a close.
Now after Democrats have spent the entire week slandering and questioning the integrity of Gen. Petraeus, what will their new strategy be?

Why, withdrawal, of course.

They never learn.

We'll consider the 43% a mandate, since back in 1992, Bill Clinton got 43% of the vote and called it a Mandate for Change.
