Wow -- I guess even the troops are now sandal-wearing peacenik America-haters....

More than half the North Carolina military members surveyed in the latest Elon University poll don't like the way President Bush is handling his job and the war in Iraq....

Of the 539 adults surveyed, nearly 53 percent of military members said they strongly disapproved or disapproved of Bush's handling of his job. And 56 percent of that same group said they strongly disapproved or disapproved of his handling of the Iraq war....

The pollsters also point this out:

Among citizens who are the parent, sibling or relative of a current member of the military, 53 percent said the U.S. should not be in Iraq, compared with 50 percent among those without a military relative.

Yup -- their opposition to the war is greater than the general public's.

Bush's overall approval in North Carolina is down to 41% -- and 11-point drop since March. In 2004, Bush beat Kerry 56%-44%.
