The Gateway Pundit, is reporting that the popularity of our current course in Iraq has undergone a massive change over the last few months. 40 percent of Americans now believe that the Surge is Working, another 21 percent either are sure or don't want to admit reality and yet another 12% believe the surge is making things worse, clearly they are either are smok'n Obama's stuff or they are rooting for al-Qaeda, which is more likely than not.

Melanie Morgan at World Net Daily reported on this poll:Check out the comment left... They believe things aren't getting better in Iraq, or that the real causes of problems in are not Iraq is al-Qaeda and Iran, but the U.S. military.
It's a huge, stunning shift in the polls that is undoubtedly going to shake up the 2008 elections.
From down 21 percent to now up by 6 percent the new polls (just released) show the swing in momentum, one that has been remarkable by the media's silence on the matter. The tectonic swing in public opinion is taking place under radar and no one is talking about it...
But month after month of progress by U.S. and Coalition troops have managed to pierce through the lies of the liberal mainstream media, and the American people are learning the truth: Our troops are winning in Iraq.
While the September 2007 CBS/New York Times poll showed that more Americans thought 'the surge' was making 'no impact' (51 percent) than thought the surge was making things 'better' (30 percent), the outlook today is much more promising.
If the leftists really believe that the American Public wants to "Snatch Defeat From The Jaws Of Victory" in Iraq then they are sadly mistaken.
I for one would love to make that the defining issue in this fall's campaign. I doubt that the Dem's leadership will be that stupid.
