Something interesting is brewing in Iowa:
Do you favor a withdrawal of all United States military from Iraq within the next six months? (Republicans Only)
Get Hewitt on the phone! He needs to find some way to get half of the Iowa Republican Party expelled. Democratic numbers from the same poll are 64-9% in favour. Somewhat weirdly, despite obvious strong pro-withdrawal sentiment among Iowa Republicans, Hagel has actually lost ground since an earlier Iowa poll done by this same firm in January. Then again, since Hagel isn’t really against the war and has been quiet as a churchmouse about actual withdrawal plans, it’s no wonder pro-withdrawal Republicans aren’t more excited about his (still) undeclared candidacy.
