This article presents the results of several public opinion polls in the U.S. on Iraq war. Was the war in Iraq a mistake? Since terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's death, slightly fewer Americans are inclined to think so, but a majority still believe going to war in Iraq was the wrong thing to do. According to a Gallup/USA Today poll, 51 percent of respondents now say the war was a mistake; that's down from 57 percent in April. And 47 percent said things are going well in Iraq, up from 38 percent in April. Americans do not think the death of Zarqawi will help calm the situation in Iraq. In a CBS News poll, 50 percent said the number of attacks on U.S. forces in Iraq will not change, 30 percent said attacks will increase, and 16 percent said they will decrease.
