Looks the tide is changing.

Before America was behind Bush; now Bush is behind America

The left-wing NYT poll says more Americans say Iraq was a mistake, don't approve of Bush's handling of Iraq and trust the Dems more than the Republicans to make the right decisions about Iraq.

A new opinion poll indicates most Americans now say the United States should have stayed out of Iraq.

In the New York Times - CBS News poll released Friday, 51% of those polled said the United States should not have gone to war in Iraq. And the poll reported 62% of respondents said the war was not worth the cost.

Opinion of President Bush's handling of Iraq appeared to change little since the transfer of sovereignty last month, with 37% of people approving and 58% disapproving of his performance.

The survey also found people were nearly split on which political party they trusted to make the right decisions about the Iraq war, with 45% of people backing Democrats and 41% supporting Republicans.

So why is it a suprise that the NYT runs a poll against Bush and the Iraq war?  Id be very interested to examine their sample population and size.  For that matter they didnt even list their chance of error.

Propaganda.

I knew you'd react that way.

The NYT did report on their website how the poll was conducted.

The article I posted is from Voice of America

Did the NYT not report on polls when they were favoring Bush?
