America wants an Iraq deadline: Pew Poll

I want to start this by noting that Pew is one of the best national polling firms. I like Pew Polls because they ask interesting questions and provide a somewhat different analysis than you will get from other major pollsters.

The latest poll is no exception. For example, by a 59-33 rate, Americans want their representative to vote for an August 2008 troop pullout. The break democrats and republicans into moderate and liberal/conservative.

If you've followed any polling numbers over the past two years, you will surely know that independents views much more closely match those of democrats, and this poll is no exception. Large majorities of dems and indies want their representative to vote for the August 2008 pullout.

Reeps - surprise! - want us to stay in Iraq indefinitely. An interesting finding is that moderate reeps only favor staying past 2008 by a 49-44 rate. The conservatives have an alternate reality that I cannot seem to channel, so I won't even try to make sense of their views.

Here some links:

And to analysis by Mystery Pollster over at pollster.com. (I linked to their home page; scroll down, you will find it. But, the site is ever-interesting.)

No doubt these 7 vegetables can help you lose weight effectively as a vegetarian, you should also include other varieties of plant-based foods to achieve both effective weight loss and excellent health. Many people are experiencing the same problem you face right now. We're all in the same boat when it comes to being frustrated about Phentermine tolerance. For some of us, the appetite suppression diminishes within a few weeks of beginning treatment. Others enjoy the effects for a longer time, but we all seem develop tolerance eventually. So, I decided to step up to the plate and help you continue toward your weight loss goals. Does healthy eating mean eating all things I hate? Many people think that a healthy weight loss diet will mean they cannot eat anything that they enjoy. However, there are plenty of healthy recipes that can be fun, tasty and interesting. All you need to do is know how to find variety in your choices. Look for healthy meals that include different types of ingredients that you can enjoy.
