When Reid Said Iraq War is Lost, You Approved

It was a lopsided result. Our latest Quick Poll! question asked whether you approved or disapproved of Senate Minority Leader Harry ReidHarry ReidFreedom Partners Action Fund launches ad buys in Wisconsin, Nevada Trump: 'I'd have to think about' Cruz for Supreme Court Reid: Judiciary a 'rubber stamp' for Trump-McConnell MORE's public suggestion that the Iraq war was already lost. Of people voting in the poll, 76% approved and only 26% disapproved.

What does this show? It's difficult to be sure. We were criticized perhaps justly for asking a question that conservatives and/or Republicans had little incentive to answer; while Democrats and liberals might jump to Reid's defense, Republicans and conservatives were as likely to shrug and move on. Why not, asked one visitor to the site, pose a question about whether Reid should resign — that way, both his defenders and critics would be spurred to vote.

Maybe so. Thanks for the feedback.
