Polls Show Iraqis Want U.S. Troops Out

"Majorities of Iraq's Sunni Arabs (82%) and Shiites (69%) favor U.S. forces withdrawing either immediately or after an elected government is in place," according to a new Zogby Poll.

The Washington Post notes similar surveys: "Public opinion polls show 80 percent want the Americans out of their country. In the election campaign, one common theme among candidates was the withdrawal of occupying forces."

Meanwhile, the New York Times says President Bush is following his "strategy of lowering expectations" about Sunday's vote. Bush "was expected to speak publicly about the vote from the White House on Sunday."
