CBS Poll: 76% Say War's Going Badly

Obviously all this talk about a surge hasn't impressed the American people; And neither has the nonsense about Democrats undermining the troops. According to the Republican rhetoric those 76 percent must sympathetic to the Iraq insurgency:
As President Bush and Congress hammer out an Iraq war funding bill, a CBS News/New York Times poll shows the number of Americans who say the war is going badly has reached a new high, rising 10 percent this month to 76 percent.

Nearly half of all Americans (47 percent) say the war is going very badly, while just 20 percent say the recent U.S. troop increase is making a positive difference.

Even a majority of Republicans, 52 percent, now say the war is going at least somewhat badly – a 16-point increase from the middle of April. Nine in 10 Democrats and eight in 10 Independents agree.
