Thanks to Jo Miller for pointing out this gem:
While a slight majority [of Americans polled] believes the invasion of Iraq war contributed to the long-term security of the United States, 70 percent of Americans think these gains have come at an "unacceptable" cost in military casualties.If this were a GRE logic question I never would have made it to graduate school.
Nevertheless, the public is still sending conflicting signals.
. . .
58% believe Iraq is not ready for elections. Even so, 60% want those elections to go forward as scheduled. But 54% do not expect honest results.
