Poll of Iraqis Finds Less Support, More Violence

On the fourth anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq, ABC News and other media partners have released a poll of public opinions among Iraqis.

The poll demonstrates the widespread impact of violence in the country and shows a majority of Iraqis say they are worse off now than under Saddam.

Michele Norris talks with Gary Langer, director of polling for ABC News, who says, "51 percent of Iraqis now call it acceptable to take violent action against U.S. and coalition forces. That's tripled since 2004."
