job as president: 34%
handling of Iraq: 30%
handling of war on terror: 43%
- 72% think the US should get out of Iraq, and of 21% of those (29% overall) think the US should get out "immediately."
- Only 58% understand the US mission in Iraq; 42% say it is unclear what the mission is.
- 85% said the U.S. mission is mainly “to retaliate for Saddam’s role in the 9-11 attacks.”
- An additional 77% said they also believe the main or a major reason for the war was “to stop Saddam from protecting al Qaeda in Iraq.”
