FWIW, only a slim majority of Americans (53%) think Iraq was a mistake according to a recent Gallop poll. That's incredibly low given the difficulties we encountered there and all the anti-Iraq War propaganda we've been exposed to over the past 8 years or so.
From the Gallup link...

Not surprisingly, given that the war was begun in the administration of a Republican, former President George W. Bush, 66% of respondents who identify as or lean Republican say the U.S. did not make a mistake in sending troops to fight in Iraq, while 30% express the contrary view. In contrast, 73% of Democratic leaners or identifiers see the military campaign as a mistake. Twenty-two percent in that group say it was not a mistake.

Sounds like people pretty much stuck to their party lines as far as opinions on the Iraq War.
