According to a survey conducted by the Charlotte
Observer and WCNC News, Carolinians are unhappy with President George Bush’s
handling of the war in Iraq.
The Carolinas Poll surveyed over a thousand
residents of North and South Carolina last month. 49.5 percent of those polled
disapproved of Bush’s handling of the war effort, while 27.5 percent approved.
Last year’s survey showed 49 percent disapproval and 33 percent approval.
National polls tend to show higher disapproval. A CBS August poll, for example,
showed 69 percent disapproval and 26 percent approval of Bush’s handling of
Iraq. Experts say the difference in state numbers could reflect the
concentration of military bases and retirees in the Carolinas. 55 percent of
the poll’s respondents would like to see U.S. troops out of Iraq within a year,
the Carolinas Poll showed.
