'Right Thing':

Another interesting point in the Quinnipiac Poll was the movement in opinion on the Iraq War: As the television networks continued their drumbeat on the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and the Washington Post and New York Times played up any bad news they could find out of Baghdad, Americans became slightly more, not less, convinced that invading Iraq was the right thing. In the poll released May 5, only 48% believed invading Iraq was the “right thing” while 45% believed it was the “wrong thing.” In the May 26 poll, 50% said it was the “right thing” while 44% said it was the “wrong thing.” A plurality also thought Bush (48%) would do a better job than Kerry (39%) of “bringing the situation in Iraq to a successful conclusion.”
