Commentary
The Republican Party is down 10% since the last United States federal general election. By contrast, Democratic Party popularity is down by only 2%.
Although the number of respondents who are of the opinion that U.S. forces should get out of Iraq (immediately) has increased significantly, a slight majority of respondents are not prepared to give up the fight in Iraq just yet.
Respondents are split on our last question, which presents a ‘parallel experience rationale’ for maintaining armed forces in Iraq.
Despite the comments from anti-Bush advocates U.S. citizens are not accepting the theory that the problems with Katrina should be absolutely linked with the circumstances involving Iraq. However those that do support this theory are among those respondents who want the U.S. out of Iraq ‘immediately’.
Given this, it can be reasonably hypothesized that the horrific damage caused by Hurricane Katrina and the anarchy, which followed, has played a role in galvanizing a base of support against the war in Iraq, to the extent that AT A MINIMUM U.S. citizens are getting sick of all the destruction and bad news. (War is never the bearer of any good news until it is announced the war is over).
