A poll released Monday by the Gallup organization shows that 6 in 10 Americans say the United States should withdraw some or all troops from Iraq. In February, less than half of those surveyed by Gallup offered that opinion.

A poll by The Washington Post and ABC and another by the Pew Research Center also indicate a drop in public support for the war.
