Poll: Opposition to Iraq war at all-time high

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Opposition among Americans to the war in Iraq has reached a new high, with only about a third of respondents saying they favor it, according to a poll released Monday.

Just 35 percent of 1,033 adults polled say they favor the war in Iraq; 61 percent say they oppose it -- the highest opposition noted in any CNN poll since the conflict began more than three years ago.

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING Polls are crutches for lazy journalists. Even if the poll said 99% of the galaxy said GW was the greatest president ever, SO WHAT, It means nothing.

results you want is pretty common manipulation. This particular poll could have been done inside Moveon.org's own facilities or at one of Sheehan's "pep rallies" for all we know. I don't know why newspeople or even campaign managers bother taking them to be honest since the majority of the people who read those poll results usually don't agree with them anyhow because THEY WERE NEVER ASKED OR POLLED.

In all of my years, I've been polled via telephone ONCE and that was for an environmental impact study being done within the State of Virginia for water causeways....and even THAT got it wrong because it was for the EASTERN coastal area and I'm at the other freaking end of the State. Don't pollsters look at AREA codes before picking up the phones?

Add two questions to the poll
by Steven Haninger / September 7, 2006 9:09 PM PDT

1. Are you willing to convert to Islam to avoid death at the hands of extremists?
2. Are you willing to risk war to avoid having to face the need to answer question #1? Wink

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
