Thanks mainly to the Surge! From USA Today:
In the latest USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, taken Friday through
Sunday, the proportion of those who said the additional troops are "making the
situation better" rose to 31% from 22% a month ago. Those who said it was "not
making much difference" dropped to 41% from 51%.
About the same number said
it was making things worse: 24% now, 25% a month ago.
There's no doubt Americans love a winner, and our great General Petraeus and his brave and brilliant troops are giving us just that! Well done and God bless.
Update-And now the AP is on board.
