Iraq war loses support

Kevin Drum points out that American's support for the war has gradually declined in near linear fashion since the beginning and has the graph to prove it. I find it interesting that the graph levels out for a few months just before the election and then--once the election is over--quickly jumps to about where it would have been if it had continued in a straight line. Apparently, the election itself influenced people's opinion of the war just as much as the war influenced people's opinion of the election.

Josh Marshall makes the same point with deeper explanation.
