McCain Tops Obama in Commander-in-Chief in latest pollJuly 15th, 2008 - 6:00 pm ICT by David M N James
American Pollsters have concluded that 72 Percent of Americans find Republican presidential candidate McCain as the most suitable Commander-in-Chief.
Americans find John McCain’s approaches to the war in Iraq as more rational, and rate him highly on his abilities as commander-in-chief since the unpopular war isn’t working more to Obama’s advantage.
In spite of Obama’s heated debate on the war on Iraq and the troop’s withdrawal, only 50% of the Americans feel that Obama’s ideologies are ok. Despite broad, longstanding dissatisfaction with the war, just 50 percent of Americans prefer Obama’s plan to withdraw most U.S. forces within 16 months of taking office. Essentially as many, 49 percent, side with McCain’s position as such setting no timetable and letting events dictate when troops are withdrawn.
McCain supports the war and calls it essential in the U.S. campaign against terrorism; Obama differs. Among all Americans, 63 percent say the war was not worth fighting, steady the last year and a half. And six in 10 reject the idea that winning in Iraq is necessary for success against terrorism more broadly. McCain can capitalize on Iraq is as commander-in-chief based on his military background. A shocking seventy-two percent of Americans most of them Democrats agree unanimously he’d be a good commander-in-chief of the military. About 48 percent, say Obama would be a good commander-in-chief, a significant weakness on this measure.
