Don Surber notes the new Zogby poll showing that 3 percent of Americans approve of Congress’s handling of Iraq. That’s not a typo. Three percent.
It makes sense, of course. According to the poll, 42% think Congress should fully fund the war to maintain current troop levels, 34% think they should attach conditions demanding a phased withdrawal to funding bills, and 18% think they should cut off funds entirely to force a quick withdrawal. By ostentatiously trying, and then failing, to attach conditions to their funding of the war, the Democrats have managed to anger all three of those groups.
