Summary
This special topic poll, conducted April 9, 2003, was undertaken to assess public opinion on the war against Iraq. Respondents were asked whether they approved of the way President George W. Bush was handling the presidency as well as the way things were going in the United States. Respondents' opinions were elicited about whether they supported the United States going to war with Iraq, whether that support would change if the United States found chemical and/or biological weapons in Iraq, whether Iraqi President Saddam Hussein had to be killed/captured for the war to be considered a success, and whether the people of Iraq were on the side of the United States or Hussein. Those queried were asked to assess how the war was going, whether the number of United States military casualties had been acceptable, and whether everything had been done to avoid civilian casualties. Respondents were asked whether they were surprised at how quickly the United States military took control of Baghdad, and whether they considered the war with Iraq basically over. A series of questions addressed post-war Iraq. Topics covered whether the United States or the United Nations should be in charge until a new government was established, whether a large number of soldiers should remain in Iraq to maintain peace, whether the war would leave the United States in a stronger or weaker position in the world, and how the war would affect stability in the Middle East. Views were sought on the likelihood that the United States would become bogged down in a drawn-out war with Iraq, whether the war would cause long-term damage to United States relations with France, Germany, and Russia, and whether the United States would be too quick to use military force to resolve disputes in the future. Lastly, respondents were asked whether the United States had done the right thing by going to war with Iraq. Background information on respondents includes gender and political party
