Gallup on Iraq

New Gallup poll taken Feb 9-11 with the following detail on Iraq:

Republicans get a 27% job approval rating on their handling of the Iraq issue. Dems are only slightly higher at 30% approval.

60% oppose Bush's plan to surge troops, but only a slim majority (51%) favor a non-binding resolution from Congress expressing its disapproval of the plan.

57% favor putting a cap on the number of U.S. troops serving in Iraq (aka The Hillary Clinton option).

63% favor setting a time-table for withdrawing all U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of next year (aka The Barack Obama option - more or less, since Obama would have troops out by March 2008).

40% favor (and 58% oppose) denying the funding needed to send any additional U.S. troops to Iraq (aka The Russ Feingold option).
