Poll suggests public opposition to additional money for Iraq

A new poll shows there isn't much public support for President Bush's request for more money for Afghanistan and Iraq.

An ABC News Washington Post poll says six in ten people oppose the additional 87 billion dollars Bush wants on top of the 79 billion dollars Congress already approved.

Almost nine in ten people said they're concerned the U.S. is going to get bogged down in a long peacekeeping mission in Iraq. That's up from three-fourths who thought the same thing last month.

Despite those numbers, President Bush's job approval rating remained mostly steady, at 58 percent.
