The number of Americans who do not believe it was ?worth it? going to war in Iraq continues to grow, now reaching 57% of the public, according to a new CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll. Just 41% say it was worth it.
Just last week, Gallup placed the ?not worth it? figure at 53%. In February the ?not worth it? sector stood at 48%. Yet there have been very few media explorations of the possible reasons for this sentiment.
Asked how things are going for the United States in Iraq, 56 percent said “badly” or “very badly,” up from 45 percent in March.
These growing concerns come despite the Iraqi elections, which had seemed to many a positive step forward. There has been a recent upsurge in violence in Iraq.
The new poll of 1,006 Americans took place on April 29-May 1.
