A Popular War?

The media is playing up the popularity of the war now that it's started, but polls still show that 35% of the population wanted more time for inspections-- only 62% approve the rush to war. This compares to 79% approval in 1991 after the war started, compared to 16% that thought the country should wait. As to the war on terrorism:

In the latest Times/CBS News poll, 59 percent said the onset of hostilities has increased the threat of terrorism against the United States and only 8 percent thought the risk has decreased.
Beneath the surface of rallying around the troops, the American people know that this war is feeding hatred and danger to the American people.

Which is why hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers, who known terrorism better than any other city, marched against the war yesterday.
