61% of Americans Oppose "Surge"

In line with the good doctor’s post just moments ago, it’s important to note where American sentiment lies on the Bush/McCain/Lieberman strategy of escalation.

Democrats are not merely acting as obstructionists when they work to deny Bush the opportunity to sacrifice upwards of another 20,000 American soldiers lives. According to a USA Today/Gallup poll released today, only 36% of Americans are in favor of escalation, while a staggering 61% majority oppose this action.

This coincides closely with the sentiment of our troops on the ground. Right-wing commentator and usual Bush supporter, Oliver North noted just yesterday that “nearly all” US troops are opposed to the escalation as well.

Bush may not listen to the voice of the American people, but it is finally being heard loud and clear on the Capital.
