Rich White Suburbanites Warming To Surge


President Bush faces widespread opposition to the troop buildup in Iraq, though he has gained support over the past month, an AP-Ipsos poll found.

The president has nudged support for the troop increase to 35 percent from 26 percent in early January. Sixty-three percent of those surveyed still oppose the increase.

The increased support came from some of Bush’s core supporters — Republicans, men, whites, suburbanites and people with higher incomes.


A majority of people said the war was a hopeless cause and they did not think more troops would stabilize Iraq, according to the poll released Friday.
