Poll Shows Deep Disapproval of Bush, Democrats on Iraq

A new poll shows widespread disapproval of how President Bush and Democrats in Congress are handling the war in Iraq.

The Washington Post-ABC News survey indicates that 68 percent of the 1,125 respondents disagree with President Bush on Iraq. A total of 63 percent disapprove of how Democrats in Congress have handled the war.

Nearly half of those polled said they believe Democrats have done "too little" to get President Bush to change his war strategy. The nationwide poll, which was taken last week, has a 3-point margin of sampling error.

More than half of the respondents said they support legislation that would set a deadline for withdrawing U.S. combat forces from Iraq in the first months of 2008.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
