U.S. poll: No one's winning in Iraq

ATLANTA, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- Sixty percent of U.S. citizens say they believe neither the United States nor insurgents are winning the war in Iraq, a CNN poll published Tuesday said.

The poll also found the number of people who say they believe the U.S.-led coalition is winning has fallen by half since December to 20 percent, while 18 percent said they believe the insurgents are winning.

In all, 64 percent of 1,013 adults polled by telephone by Opinion Research Corp., in the past three days said they oppose the war in Iraq.

While the Bush administration has refused to set a withdrawal schedule from Iraq, 57 percent of respondents said the United States should.

The non-confidence was echoed at 60 percent for those who believe things are going badly for the United States in the war on terrorism, which is up 7 percent since September, CNN said.

The poll had a 3-point margin of error.
