The actual source of the poll, quite revealing, somehow it is out of step with what our commander in chief is saying and doing. http://www.militarycity.com/polls/2004_chart2.php A synopsis of the article http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/01/02/060102234337.if0cb0yj.html Support for President George W. Bush's Iraq policy has fallen among the US armed forces to just 54 percent from 63 percent a year ago, according to a poll by the magazine group Military Times. In its annual survey of the views of military personnel, the group reported on its website that support for Bush's overall policies dropped over the past year to 60 percent from 71 percent. While still significantly more supportive of the president than the broad US population, the fall in support by military personnel tracks a similar decline in the president's popularity among the general public. "Though support both for President Bush and for the war in Iraq remains significantly higher than in the public as a whole, the drop is likely to add further fuel to the heated debate over Iraq policy," Military Times said.
