See full story from Gallup

Most Americans expect the United States to have a significant number of troops in Iraq several years after the 2008 election, regardless of which party wins the presidency. Americans believe the withdrawal process will happen more quickly if a Democrat rather than a Republican is elected president. Perhaps because of that, Americans are more likely to predict the U.S. military will be in Iraq longer than it should be if a Republican is elected than if a Democrat is elected.
