Summary note
This poll, fielded July 20-22, 2007, is a part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked whether they approved of the way George W. Bush was handling his job as president, whether they approved of the way Bush was handling the war in Iraq and the United States campaign again terrorism. Respondents were also asked whether they approved of the way Congress was handling its job, and whether they approved of the way Democrats and Republicans in Congress were handling the war in Iraq. Multiple questions addressed the war in Iraq, including those that asked whether respondents thought it was right for the United States to take military action in Iraq, how they thought things were going for the United States in Iraq, whether the United States was right for removing Saddam Hussein and helping Iraq to build a new government, whether the United States should increase the number of troops in Iraq, and whether the additional troops sent were making the situation better. Respondent's opinions were also collected on whether Congress should block all funding for the war, whether United States involvement in Iraq was creating more terrorists who were planning to attack the United States, how likely another terrorist attack would be in the United States, and respondents' confidence levels in the ability of the United States government to protect its citizens. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, education level, household income, military service, religious preference, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), political party affiliation, political philosophy, and voter registration status.
