All Headline News - Poll: Most Americans Do Not Support Troop Surge In Iraq - January 9, 2007

According to a newly released USA Today/Gallup Poll, six out of ten Americans oppose a surge in U.S. troops, with 61 percent of those surveyed saying they are against the increase, compared to 26 percent who support a troop increase.

The President's Iraq approval rating has also plummeted to record 26 percent low, as America enters the fourth year of the conflict with some 3,000 U.S. servicemen killed during the conflict.

The poll of 1,004 adults also finds that nearly 50 percent of respondents believe the war in Iraq cannot be won, no matter how many additional troops are sent to quell the increasing violence.

As Esoder notes, Bush is now closing in on Jordan (I think Richard Nixon didn't even go that low), with no sign of loss of momentum.
