New Flares for GOP in 2006 Election Views

Public attitudes on the situation in Iraq in part seem in accord with those of Gen. John Abizaid, commander of the U.S. Central Command, who suggested in testimony to Congress that Iraq was not there yet but "could move toward civil war." About a third of Americans in this poll say Iraq is in a civil war already; 51 percent say it's not in one yet -- but close to one. The net total, 85 percent, is up slightly from April.
