Most Iraqis want troops to stay, says poll

A majority of Baghdad residents feel US and British troops should stay in Iraq for at least a year, 
according to the first attempt at an opinion poll.

The You.Gov poll results were released as news emerged that a ground-to-air missile was fired at a 
US military plane near Baghdad airport.

The poll said 31% wanted troops to stay "a few years", while 25% said "about a year."

Only 13% said they should leave now, while 20% said they should go "within 12 months".

The survey also found that half thought the US-led coalition was right to invade.

You.Gov said there was no certainty that the 798 respondents were a representative sample and that 
several interviews were conducted with gunfire in the background.
