Iraq War Losing Support Among Military Families

Families with ties to the military have been a solid pillar of support for President Bush throughout the war in Iraq. But a new poll suggests that support might be waning.

Nearly 6 out of 10 military families disapprove of the way President Bush has run the war — that's only slightly better than the general population, according to the poll from the Los Angeles Times and Bloomberg. Most conclude the war was a mistake.

We are joined by Rhonda Eggleston of Day to Day's Voters Project, a military wife who thinks the U.S. should stay the course.
