Most Iraqis want troops to stay, says poll Michael Howard, Baghdad Thursday July 17, 2003 The Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/Iraq/Story/0,2763,999751,00.html 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.
