Q33 is interesting,

Basically everybody agrees US troops should leave, which is right.

And through it all they are optimistic and think that life is better today than it was under Saddam, go figure.

> 70% think that life is quite good or very good (Q1).
> 51.5% think that life is somewhat or much better now than before the war, 18.6 think about the same and 29.3 somewhat worse or much worse.
> In a years time expectations for somewhat better or much better are 64.2, about the same 13.7 and somewhat to much worse 12.5%
> State of the country today compared to before the war, much better or somewhat better 45.9, 13.4 about the same, 38.7 somewhat or much worse.
> Expectations for the country in a year, much better or somewhat better 68.6, about the same 11.3 and 10.8 somewhat or much worse.

By the raw numbers many more Iraqi's are alive today than would be if Saddam was kept in power.

Its one poll, there have been others with different results.

Still, the number who think the US was wrong in the invasion is 50.3% vs. those who think the US was right, 46.2%. This is likely within the margin of error for the poll.

In addition, 75% of Iraqi's do not want coalition forces to leave immediately, unlike most liberals in the United States.
