POLL: Gallup Success in Iraq


Additional Analysis from a recent Gallup national survey (analysis, video) of 1008 national adults (conducted 1/25 through 1/28) finds:

  • 69% of Americans "define success in Iraq as a stabilization of the country including a stable Iraqi government, Iraqis running their own country, making Iraq secure, peaceful coexistence between the warring factions, and a democratic government in Iraq."
  • 57% think it is unlikely that the U.S. will be able to achieve these goals.

Mike C:

How is Gallup getting their figure of "69% saying success = Iraqi stabilization" of some sort when they also say their category percentages exceed 100% because of multiple answers? It looks like you can't just add up all the responses to arrive at a total, like they did, can you? Their total response categories = > 130%, so some people must be saying more than one variant of stabilization, thus getting added twice. Right or wrong?
