“President George Bush found himself dealing with an unaccustomed degree of dissent yesterday with the publication of a poll showing growing opposition to an invasion of Iraq and a near-riot outside the hotel in Oregon where he was speaking.”

While this story mentions the Portland protests against Bush [read more about those here], it’s main focus is the new USA Today poll showing that support for invading Iraq has dropped from 74% last fall to 53% now. It’s still a majority, but only barely, and the trend shows that the more Americans hear about what an attack on Iraq will actually involve, the less they like the idea. Not that I think that the Bush administration won’t invade Iraq anyway, no matter what the American people’s opinion.
