Iraq: To Surge or Not to Surge?


So now it's official: Bush wants to send 20,000 more U.S. troops to Iraq. And, as we know, congressional Democrats think that's a bad idea; indeed, Senator Ted Kennedy introduced legislation earlier this week that would require Congress' approval before any additional forces could be considered. So do New Yorkers support Bush's plan? Do they support Kennedy's? And do they think 20,000 more troops will make a difference in Iraq, anyway? It's 20-Person Poll time, and random passersby on Madison Avenue say no, no, and no.
