Oh, Hey, While We're Talking About Polls

Have you taken a look at this one?

Looks like the "troops" aren't feeling supported, and somehow I don't think everybody going out and buying yellow ribbon magnets from China is going to change that anytime soon.

The poll is the first of U.S. troops currently serving in Iraq, according to John Zogby, the pollster. Conducted by Zogby International and LeMoyne College, it asked 944 service members, "How long should U.S. troops stay in Iraq?"

Only 23 percent backed Mr. Bush's position that they should stay as long as necessary. In contrast, 72 percent said that U.S. troops should be pulled out within one year. Of those, 29 percent said they should withdraw "immediately."

From the NY Times, via Daily Kos, by way of Corrente. What a morning I've had.
