Amazingly Enough, Americans Support War

The latest Pew Research Survey contains good news for President Bush. The President now enjoys a 50%-41% favorability ratio, apparently buoyed by President Reagan’s funeral and the week-long tribute to him.
What is really remarkable, though, is that, despite the mainstream media’s unremitting efforts to portray the Iraq war as a disaster, most Americans aren’t buying it. By a 57% to 39% margin, respondents say the Iraq war is going “very well” or “fairly well,” as opposed to “not well.” Six weeks ago, 51% said “not well.” The improvement is apparently due in part to public awareness of the impending transition to Iraqi sovereignty. Consistent with that more optimistic perspective, 55% now say that the war in Iraq was the “right decision.”
