Public Favors Limits on Numbers and Time:

A USA Today/Gallup poll conducted last week indicates that Americans want Congress to set troop limits and a timetable for operations in Iraq. The poll found that the public is almost evenly split on whether lawmakers should pass a non-binding resolution about disapproval of the planned troop surge. Six out of 10 Americans oppose the surge, and more than 60 percent of those polled want to withdraw all US troops by the end of next year.
