According to a new CBS News poll 61% of Americans want US troops out of Iraq and 61% say the surge is either not working or making matters worse. That is big news right? The Republicans are all wrong on Iraq, so the liberal media would be all over that right?

Wrong. Take a look at how the “liberal media” plays it:

Poll: Americans More Optimistic On Surge

(CBS) According to a new CBS News poll, Americans have become somewhat more optimistic about the impact of the troop surge in Iraq. The poll, released Monday, shows that 29 percent of respondents now believe that the surge is having a positive impact, an increase of 10 percentage points from last month.

Fifteen percent of Americans say the surge is making the situation worse, and 46 percent say it is having no impact either way, according to the poll.

A majority of Americans remain pessimistic about the direction of the war in general. Just 29 percent say the U.S. efforts to bring stability and order to Iraq are going well, while more than two-thirds say those efforts are going badly.

You see? The surge is working!!! Yee ha….

You have to read all the way down AND do the math to figure out that six out of ten Americans think Michael Castle and George Bush are dead wrong.
