Obama and Iraq


In new polls, President Obama gets low marks for handling the situation in Iraq. In the new CBS News/New York Times poll, for example, just 37 percent of adults approve of the job he is doing there. Yet in another question in the poll, a plurality (41 percent) say he is doing the right amount to stem the violence there. Twenty-nine percent say he should do more; 22 percent said he should do less.
