When Reid Said Iraq War is Lost, You Approved

It was a lopsided result. Our latest Quick Poll! question asked whether you approved or disapproved of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's public suggestion that the Iraq war was already lost. Of people voting in the poll, 76% approved and only 26% disapproved.

What does this show? It's difficult to be sure. We were criticized perhaps justly for asking a question that conservatives and/or Republicans had little incentive to answer; while Democrats and liberals might jump to Reid's defense, Republicans and conservatives were as likely to shrug and move on. Why not, asked one visitor to the site, pose a question about whether Reid should resign — that way, both his defenders and critics would be spurred to vote.

Maybe so. Thanks for the feedback.
