A Field Poll released today says a strong majority of Californians supports the U.S. led invasion of Iraq. In the first statewide survey published since the war began, 76% of Californians questioned said they do support the war. Last September, the San Francisco-based Field Institute found 58% of respondents supported military intervention.
The increase apparently helped buoy Californians´ opinion of President Bush, whose approval rating sat at 61% reversing a year-long downward trend. The poll of one 1,006 Californians was conducted over 6 days ending Sunday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2%.
