Seventy percent of people surveyed said that criticism of the war by Democratic senators hurts troop morale -- with 44 percent saying morale is hurt "a lot," according to a poll taken by RT Strategies. Even self-identified Democrats agree: 55 percent believe criticism hurts morale, while 21 percent say it helps morale.It's amazing that these questions even got asked since usually the questions are posed so as to show how ticked off people are about Bush.
....Their poll also indicates many Americans are skeptical of Democratic complaints about the war. Just three of 10 adults accept that Democrats are leveling criticism because they believe this will help U.S. efforts in Iraq. A majority believes the motive is really to "gain a partisan political advantage."
Watch for the Bush supporters to keep drumming this point home and for the Democrats to get all pious and say that the GOP are impugning their patriotism, their stock answer whenever they're criticized. Apparently, it is fine to imply that Bush is basically a traitor who lied to get us into war, but any pushback by Bush is not permitted.
