A new CNN poll shows 60 percent of Americans both oppose the war in Iraq and believe at least some U.S. troops should be withdrawn from Iraq by the end of 2006.
It was the CNN poll's highest number opposing the war - which has steadily been climbing - since fighting began in March 2003 when 72% of Americans favored the war.
What's interesting is that people in the media continue to espouse the idea that these positions - opposing the war and favoring troop withdrawal - are "far left" positions. So either 60 percent of Americans make up the "far left" of the country, or the pundits are just flat wrong like they always are.
Hell, look how crazy they are going over Senator Lieberman's well-deserved defeat in the Connecticut Democratic primary by Ned Lamont. The facts are that the mainstream of the Democratic Party and the mainstream of Americans believe that the war was a mistake and want to at least start bringing the troops home, and Joe Lieberman was outside that mainstream.
And everyone else who is also outside the mainstream may soon share his fate.
