Poll: GOP support for Iraq war beginning to waver
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Public support for the war in Iraq has fallen to a new low. Not only that, but Republican support is beginning to waver.

Thirty percent of Americans polled say they favor the war, the lowest level of support on record. Two-thirds are opposed.
